Around the world, 759 million people are still living in the dark with no electricity access and almost 2.6 billion people lack access to clean cooking. At the same time, energy accounts for almost 75 percent of global emissions and is therefore the dominant factor in climate change. Governments, development partners and philanthropic organizations are increasingly recognizing the close links between inequality, lack of energy access and climate change.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical role sustainable energy plays for countries to ‘recover better’ to combat the pandemic and catalyse increased GDP, affordable energy provision, and improved agriculture, gender and health outcomes, as well as a cleaner environment.
If we act now, we can still achieve SDG7 by 2030 and be on track for the goals of the Paris Agreement. The next few years are critical to increasing energy access, delivering a just energy transition that is truly inclusive, and capturing the associated development, climate and economic opportunities.
