I believe that everyone should have access to energy sources that are affordable, reliable and sustainable. Energy powers economies and permeates all aspects of our lives. Without it, access to clean water and safe fuels for cooking and heating is compromised, harming the environment and putting lives at risk.
Healthcare facilities cannot run effectively, preventing patients from receiving the care that they need. Students’ ability to do homework at night is impeded. Businesses cannot be competitive. Though nearly 90% of the global population has access to electricity, approximately 20% still lack access to modern energy.
For our collective well-being and the future of our planet, let’s support the transition to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy systems.
