To realize a future with Sustainable Energy for All, national Governments must design and implement integrated country actions that strategically transform their energy systems. To spur investment, action is needed to create national policy and financial environments that enable changes which the market alone will not deliver. This applies to both developing and developed countries, although the challenges to be overcome in each case may be substantially different.
More than 50 Governments from developing countries have joined the SE4ALL initiative and have expressed an interest in advancing Sustainable Energy for All. The majority of these countries have initiated and many have completed rapid assessment to help determine the main challenges and opportunities in achieving the three goals of SE4ALL. These Rapid Assessment are laying the groundwork to scale up action in priority areas, undertake strategic reforms where needed, and attract new investments and financial support.
