Despite rapid advances in technology, millions of people do not have electricity in their homes, schools, medical centres or businesses.

In addition, almost half of the world’s population rely on wood, charcoal or crop waste for cooking and heating. This exposes them to toxic smoke that can cause many serious illnesses.

This edition of Footsteps explores how access to sustainable energy can improve people’s incomes, health, safety, education and day-to-day lives. In particular, it shows how small-scale, renewable energy solutions can be cheaper, more reliable, quicker to install and less polluting than extending a centralised energy grid.
