United Nations Decade of Sustainable Energy for All

By unanimous decision of all Member States the UN General Assembly declared the period from 2014 to 2024 the “Decade of Sustainable Energy for All”. This is to highlight the necessity of a reliable and affordable access to energy sources for all people. The resolution stressed the need to improve access to reliable, affordable, economically viable, socially acceptableand environmentally sound energy services and resources for sustainable development.  To that end, it also highlighted the importance of improving energy efficiency, increasing the share of renewable energy and cleaner and energy-efficient technologies.

The Sustainable Energy for All initiative is a multi-stakeholder partnership between governments, the private sector, and civil society. Launched by the UN Secretary-General in 2011, it has three interlinked objectives to be achieved by 2030:

  1. Ensure universal access to modern energy services.
  2. Double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.
  3. Double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Achieving the three objectives together will maximize development benefits and help stabilize climate change over the long run.
