Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
To accelerate progress, WRI’s Energy Program engages with governments, financial institutions and civil society to ensure an affordable energy transition for all people (SDG 7.2, SDG 7.3). Our teams deliver insights and analysis to speed solutions that increase energy efficiency and energy access, with the energy access work focused on India and East Africa (SDG 7.1, SDG 7.2, SDG 7.3).
WRI's renewable energy work drives alignment and investment in electricity markets to meet rising consumer demand for an affordable transition to clean energy. We also help policymakers align their energy planning with development objectives. Our Energy Access Explorer data platform helps governments and entrepreneurs expand access to clean electricity in East Africa by showing significant renewable energy potential in unserved and underserved areas of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda (SDG 7.1, SDG 7.2, SDG 7.A, SDG 7.B).
