1 IN 7 PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ELECTRICITY.
With a growing world population, this number is projected to remain the same for the next 20 years. Without electricity, most of these people have no other option but to use kerosene lamps to light their homes.
Millions more have unreliable and sporadic supply, meaning that over 2 billion people rely on biomass fuels such as kerosene for light.
The electricity grid is growing but is not keeping pace with population growth.
