1.1 billion people around the world face immediate risks from lack of access to cooling, says a report from Sustainable Energy for All released at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development in New York City.

Financing, policy and operating needs of enterprises delivering energy access will be critical to achieve SDG7. This report looks at five key countries – Bangladesh, Myanmar, Kenya, Ethiopia and Nigeria – and provides insights on actions needed to scale up decentralized renewable electricity and clean cooking solutions.

This new report, Understanding the Landscape: Tracking Finance for Electricity and Clean Cooking Access in High-Impact Countries, provides a pathway to refine and improve strategies to accelerate progress in delivering universal energy access.

This new report, Missing the Mark: Gaps and Lags in Disbursement of Development Finance for Energy Access, provides useful insights about the effectiveness of finance commitments for energy access projects in selected developing countries.

“Energizing Finance: Scaling and Refining Finance in Countries with Large Energy Access Gaps,” offers key insights and recommendations to support governments and development finance institutions boost finance levels – and use it more effectively.

Innovative financial mechanisms in four key areas have the potential to boost crucial investment in sustainable energy by some $120 billion a year in the near term, an expert report from the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative shows.

1.1 billion people in the world still live without electricity and almost 3 billion still cook using polluting fuels like kerosene, wood, charcoal and dung says this new report that tracks progress of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative.
