  • Nearly 40% of the world's population rely on wood, coal, charcoal, or animal waste to cook their food in outdated cookstoves and open fires and are breathing in toxic smoke that causes lung disease and kills nearly two million people a year, most of them women and children.
  • Cost of energy is too high for the large majority of citizens.
  • Low resource productivity slows economic growth, harms business results and energy security.
  • Too high greenhouse gas emission and local pollution; High fuel price volatility; imbalance of payments: Increasing the share of energy from renewable sources, and improving energy efficiency can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local pollution; energy from renewable sources can insulate countries from fuel price volatility; and improve those countries' balance of payments.
