Sustainable Energy is a key enabler of sustainable development for all countries and all people. Energy is vital for alleviating poverty, improving human welfare and raising living standards. Energy has been a central concern to humankind throughout its long history. The adequate provision of energy services has become especially important for economic development since the industrial revolution.
