7: Affordable and clean energy

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.
Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is leading a Sustainable Energy for All initiative to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources.

How is it going?

So far, Sierra Leone is not receiving a passing grade for SDG 7 in the SDG Index and Dashboard Global Report. 10% of the population use electricity for lighting and 5% have access to non solid fuels.
