The world is still not on track: Global sustainable energy access gap persists

A new report released by International Energy Agency (IEA), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), World Bank and World Health Organisation (WHO) has said the world is not on track to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 for energy by 2030.
The report offers the international community a global summary of progress on energy access, energy efficiency, renewable energy, clean cooking, and international cooperation to advance SDG 7. It presents updated statistics for each of the indicators and provides policy insights on priority areas and actions needed to spur further progress on SDG 7, as well as related SDGs.
Despite some progress across the indicators, the current pace is not adequate to achieve any of the 2030 targets.
