UN Development Goal:

Affordable & Clean Energy

Just below 1 billion people worldwide don’t have access to electricity

41% of the world’s population relies on fuel and stove combinations that lead to damaging levels of both indoor and outdoor air pollution. As the need for affordable electricity increases worldwide, there is a massive need to invest in sustainable sources of energy including solar, wind, and thermal power.
