Transforming Global Energy Access
Energy access and affordability remain core development challenges in large parts of the world. At the same time, the diversification of the energy matrix and its shift from fossil fuel-based energy to renewables is imperative for climate mitigation, given energy accounts for more than two-thirds of global greenhouse emissions.
