Universal access to clean and affordable energy is a moral imperative and central to achieving the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. With the world in the midst of its worst energy crisis in decades, what are the impacts of the crisis on energy poverty in the short- and long-term? Will the crisis accelerate or slow the transition to clean energy, and why?
The Center on Global Energy Policy and the Zayed Sustainability Prize hosted a discussion on topics relating to universal access to clean and affordable energy and how addressing energy poverty can be a trigger for economically stronger and climate resilient communities. Leading global experts discussed their thoughts on current trends, the role of small businesses and NGOs in helping end energy poverty, and climate resilience challenges related to food security, clean water, and public health.
