Sustainable energy has the power to fuel progress across the Sustainable Development Agenda – it is generated from resources that are available to everyone, lights up homes in the remotest parts of the world, helps children learn and keeps girls in schools, runs equipment in hospitals, stores life-saving vaccines in cool conditions and creates more economic opportunities and jobs – without polluting the environment and warming the planet with fossil fuels. 

Despite its significance, the world is falling short on meeting Sustainable Development Goal 7 – the bedrock for ensuring universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy by 2030 – says Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), an international organization tasked with removing the obstacles to achieve the Goal.
