Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.
Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.
The programs below explore different facets of the Sustainable Energy for All initiative, aiming to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources.
Sustainability and Clean Energy Solutions
We explore the industrial and political achievements in Uruguay that have resulted in 95 percent of the country’s energy coming from renewable sources.
Urban Asia: Models or Missteps?
We look at the different approaches to energy in dense urban Asian ‘mega-cities” to determine if they are a solution for population growth or a dystopian future.
TECHNOLOGY: Solving and sparking Issues
We explore the benefits (and dangers) of technological solutions for energy problems in Japan, including a sobering view of the post-Fukushima landscape.
