SDG of the month
Over the last decade, access to electricity has expanded, use of renewable energy in the electricity sector has increased, and energy efficiency has improved. Still, millions of people are without electricity, and one third of the global population uses dangerous and inefficient cooking systems.
The COVID-19 pandemic is reversing the progress made so far, and is causing millions of people to lose access to electricity. On the positive side, stimulus plans designed to boost economic growth, protect workers and create jobs could scale up the deployment of clean energy technologies.
