ACCESS TO ENERGY FOR THE POOR: THE CLEAN ENERGY OPTION

A Joint Publication by Oil Change International, ActionAid International and Vasudha Foundation, India

June 2011

Increasing access to modern energy services for the worlds poorest is a critical development issue. A number of initiatives are currently underway-internationally, nationally, and locally- to increase access to energy services. These initiatives prove that energy access and clean energy can go hand in hand. Moving global energy use towards clean energy pathways is crucial because these sources protect the environment and natural resources locally and do not compromise public health.
