While today’s energy production and consumption are being optimized to limit greenhouse gas emissions, 2 billion people still do not benefit from enough energy.
These difficulties in accessing energy lead to serious health, ecological and environmental consequences, especially in developing countries. This is particularly the case in Africa where 80% of the rural population does not have access to electricity. This unequal access to energy is a serious obstacle to the development of these countries and the health of their inhabitants.
Improving access to energy on a global scale is therefore one of the key priorities of the 21st century.
