AbstractPerhaps the single greatest impediment to sustained economic and social growth is the pervasive problem of energy poverty — the lack of access to a steady, clean and safe supply of electricity. According to the International Energy Agency, roughly 1.2 billion people around the world lack access to electricity, and more than 2.7 billion people are without clean cooking facilities. The vast majority of those lacking electricity and clean cooking facilities live in sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia.
