Our Goal? Universal Energy Access by 2030

1.1 billion people around the world have no access to electricity and the many development benefits that it brings – improved health, education, security, and income.

The Energy Access Practitioner Network is a global platform that brings together energy service providers and stakeholders from 170 countries to support the delivery of clean, reliable, and affordable decentralized energy as a contribution to the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy For All Initiative goal of universal energy access by 2030.
