  • 19.2 million people obtain sustainable access to modern energy services in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This is more than people living in Norway and Switzerland combined;
  • more than 21,900 social institutions and 41,300 small enterprises benefit from sustainable access to modern energy services;
  • train 40,500 stove builders, craftswomen and -men, vendors and solar technicians.
