Decade of Sustainable Energy for All

UN seeks decade of 'sustainable energy for all'

 | 

In June, the United Nations officially deemed 2014 the beginning of a “Decade of Sustainable Energy for All.”

The initiative, first announced in 2012, seeks to catalyze advocacy and action toward making universal access to renewable energy a global priority, at a time when 1.3 billion people lack electricity and 2.6 billion in developing countries use biomass in cooking and heating.
