Opportunity for New Energy
A staggering 1.6 billion people are energy impoverished, lacking access to electricity and transportation fuel. The number of people relying on the traditional use of biomass for cooking is approximately 2.8 billion. Most of these people live in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, India, Brazil and other developing Asian countries (excluding China), 82% of them live in rural areas.
The United Nations FOA, The World Wildlife Fund and many others draw a direct correlation between the lack of access to energy and poverty.
Affordable sustainable energy must be available for everyone – regardless.
“Small scale distributed production facilities integrated with communities, will enable communities to grow what they know and make energy that will provide Energy Independence. This in turn will help to eradicate poverty and improve health and education.”
Bill Bivins, CEO, One World Clean Energy, Inc.
