2 billion people, almost a third of humanity, are without the opportunity that comes from access to reliable energy.

The majority of the energy impoverished live in rural areas—some of the most challenging regions to supply electricity.

Power for All is a collective of public and private organizations dedicated to delivering universal energy access before 2030. Learn more about our campaign to transform the future of energy access.

Universal energy access does not have to wait

With no established method of energy delivery for the majority of the energy impoverished, rural areas of the developing world are a blank slate for reinventing how energy is generated, delivered and paid for. Compared to traditional “steel-in-the-ground” approaches, renewable, distributed energy is far more economical and effective in the markets most affected by energy poverty. This solution is less expensive, faster to implement, and creates a sustainable pathway to the energy needs of the developing world.

Renewable, distributed and democratized energy is a critical part of providing universal energy access to billions of people—and it doesn’t have to wait.

Join Power for All in our campaign to accelerate universal energy access.
