Access to electricity in poorer countries has begun to accelerate, energy efficiency continues to improve, and renewable energy is making impressive gains in the electricity sector. While the world has seen progress in making energy more sustainable and widely available, more attention is needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.

Annual investments of around USD $35 billion could bring electricity access for people who currently lack it, and $25 billion a year can help people gain access to clean cooking between now and 2030. The required investment represents only a small fraction of the multi-trillion-dollar global energy investment needed overall, but would bring huge benefits to one-third of the world’s population. This quiz focuses on SDG7 to discuss why affordable and clean energy matters for all.
