The lack of access to modern energy services for cooking, lighting, and heating homes is a critical problem for low-income populations.
Modern energy services are crucial to human well-being and to a country’s economic development, and yet globally over 1.3 billion people are without access to electricity and 2.6 billion people are without clean cooking facilities. The world’s energy poor are continuously affected by the low availability of sustainable and reliable energy, with increasing difficulty in remote areas.
SNV is working to end energy poverty. With the right mix of approaches, solutions and technologies, we work with partners to empower rural and peri-urban communities.
