Energy access represents a crucial yet often overlooked dimension to the issue of poverty. Relatively small amounts of energy can satisfy the basic needs of rural populations and have a dramatic impact on quality of life. Despite this, approximately 3 billion people , half the worlds population, have no access to clean cooking energy and around 1.6 billion are without electricity provisions. The vast majority of those affected reside in rural and isolated locations which remain unreached by modern energy services and electrification programs, relying instead on traditional forms of energy.
