The three objectives of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL)

A new multi-agency study, led by the World Bank and the International Energy Agency, was presented at the Vienna Energy Forum 2013. The Global Tracking Framework report charts the course to achieve universal energy access, double the use of renewable energy and improve energy efficiency.

"Methodological challenges in defining and measuring Energy access "

Global Tracking framework

 This report is the first of a series to monitor progress towards the three objectives of the Sustainable Energy for All initiative. It puts numbers to each objective, identifies what needs to change, and outlines how progress can be made.

The UN Secretary General’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative establishes three global objectives to be accomplished by 2030: to achieve universal access to modern energy services, to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency, and to double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Sustaining momentum for the achievement of the SE4ALL objectives will require a means of charting global progress over the years leading to 2030. This Global Tracking Framework establishes for the first time a methodology and data platform for regular global reporting against the three SE4ALL objectives. Construction of the necessary framework has been coordinated by the World Bank/Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), in collaboration with 13 other agencies. The process has benefited from public consultation with more than a hundred stakeholder groups.

Objective 1 : Providing universal acess to modern energy.

Objective 2 : Doubing the rate of improvement in global energy efficiency,

Objective 3 : Doubling the share if world's mix of Renewable energy.
