Energy

“Energy is at the heart of development; it makes possible the investments, innovations and new industries that are the engines of jobs, inclusive growth and shared prosperity for entire economies.” International Development Association

The Challenge

The adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 reflected strong political recognition of the importance of energy to development. For the first time, the global community adopted a target to ensure affordable, reliable energy for all (SDG 7), with steady progress since being made in areas such as energy finance.

However, with 1 in 10 people worldwide lacking access electricity – rising to 56% in sub-Saharan Africa – and just 11% of total final energy consumption deriving from modern renewables, it’s clear that urgent work is needed to meet SDG 7 by 2030. With our diverse energy offering, Season Development stands ready to contribute across the developing world.
