In Chapter 2 the global dimension of universal access to energy is presented together with some correlations between energy availability and development. Energy is discussed in the framework of sustainability and therefore analyzed based on the three pillars of economic, social and environmental dimensions. Access to energy is also discussed according to the two main challenges of electrification and biomass dependence. Efficiency and the main drivers and barriers toward local integrated renewable energy strategies are also discussed to widen the perspective.

Abstract

In Chapter 2 the global dimension of universal access to energy is presented together with some correlations between energy availability and development. Energy is discussed in the framework of sustainability and therefore analyzed based on the three pillars of economic, social and environmental dimensions. Access to energy is also discussed according to the two main challenges of electrification and biomass dependence. Efficiency and the main drivers and barriers toward local integrated renewable energy strategies are also discussed to widen the perspective.
