This report shines a light on the cooling access challenges faced today and how they may change by 2030. It shows that the risks to the most vulnerable from extreme heat are growing due to a lack of access to sustainable cooling.

The rationale behind the report was the following:

Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) sets out a global aim to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

This is the fourth edition of the ground-breaking Chilling Prospects series, which tracks immediate vulnerability due to a lack of access to cooling. The work identifies populations at risk for whom a lack of access to cooling threatens their immediate health and safety.

This Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) knowledge brief reviews best available cooling technologies and their capacity to be supported at different levels of the Multi-Tier Framework (MTF) for Measuring Energy Access.

The purpose of this study is to provide practical guidance and recommendations to the Government of Sierra Leone for the sustainable development of the country’s mini-grid sector by building upon lessons learned from the ongoing Rural Renewable Energy Project (RREP) as well as from mini-grid sector development in Nigeria.

From France to Australia to Kenya, 2019 has been a record-breaking year for global temperatures.

Taking the Pulse 2019 details the energy access financing challenge faced in three countries: Madagascar, the Philippines and Uganda. The report provides crucial insights into how national contexts shape finance flows for electricity and clean cooking access.

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.
