It's estimated that 1.2 billion people worldwide have no access to electricity, and another billion have only unreliable access. Meanwhile, nearly 3 billion people in the developing world cook food and heat their homes with traditional cookstoves or open fires. Deploying clean and efficient modern technologies to replace the technologies and fuels used by these communities -- who are typically among the world's poorest and most vulnerable -- represent significant environmental, development and market opportunities, yet clean energy access efforts to date have shown limited success. Join CLASP's Matt Jordan for an overview of these issues and discussion of emerging solutions.
