Infographic of the Day: Universal Access to Energy

Ed note. Sustainable Energy for All is a new initiative of UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon that sets three concrete goals for humanity to achieve by 2030.  This includes ensuring universal access to modern energy; doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

For the next three days we are rolling out infographics that explain each of these three goals, why they are needed, and how we can achieve them. Yesteday’s infographic explained the energy efficiency goal. Today’s takes a look at what it takes to bring modern energy access to every corner of the globe.
