From the Poverty Matters Blog, the question is posed; Can energy for all be a reality by 2030? Ban Ki-moon is confident the UN initiative to promote sustainable energy can lead to universal access. Imagine a world, 18 years from now, in which every single household on the planet is connected to a reliable energy supply that comes from a sustainable source.
It is a fiercely ambitious goal, but a feasible one – according to the UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon. Universal energy access is just one of the aims of his Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which got a big push at a recent meeting on the sidelines of the UN general assembly.
