Our Work

Going further, faster – together

In 2015, governments worldwide agreed on a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – among those, Goal 7, which calls for universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. To achieve this ambitious goal – just under one billion people still lack access to electricity, three billion lack access to clean cooking - we need a massive energy transition that will also drive an economic transformation for all.

And all this must be accomplished while meeting the pollution-cutting objectives of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, which calls for limiting average global temperature increases to “well below” 2 °Celsius.

Promises made must be promises kept.

The global energy transition requires significant improvements in energy productivity, accelerated progress on electricity access using centralized and decentralized sources, and ever-increasing share of renewable energy. And this energy transition must be a ‘just’ transition. We cannot leave anyone behind.

Sustainable Energy for All is driving the kind of action we need to put the world on a “well below 2C pathway” while lifting billions of people out of energy poverty.

As a global platform, Sustainable Energy for All empowers leaders to broker partnerships and unlock finance to achieve universal access to sustainable energy. We marshal evidence, benchmark progress and connect stakeholders. We also amplify voices of our Partners and tell stories of success.

We know what actions are needed. By regularly taking stock of where we are - in 2018, in 2020, in 2024 – we can help government leaders and other decision-makers stay on track. The clean energy transition is an historic economic opportunity for growth and job-rich development. We must seize this opportunity and leave no one behind.

In our shared and unwavering commitment to achieve this better world, Sustainable Energy for All will help global leaders go further, faster – together.
