Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) is a United Nations initiative that has a goal of universal energy access by 2030. The effort is a cooperative among energy innovators and suppliers to bring electrical power to the estimated 100 million households that are still without it. The directive relies heavily on solar technology because of the relatively low cost in reaching remote communities. Nextek Power Systems supports the UN’s efforts and is involved in efforts to bring solar power to places like Haiti. In addition to providing electricity to impoverished areas, the introduction of the technology has also been shown to improve local economic development, public health, education, and environmental issues.
A video made at the recent Solar Power International conference features four industry professionals discussing the benefits and future of SE4ALL and solar power in general:
