OUR FOCUS

Energy

Powering up for the future

People cannot prosper without reliable, safe, and affordable energy to power everything from lights to vehicles to factories, to hospitals.  UNDP helps countries transition away from the use of finite fossil fuels and towards clean, renewable, affordable sources of energy. We leverage financing, including from public and private sources and partner with countries and industries to increase the share of renewables in the national energy mix; fuel systemic change in the transport industry; establish solar energy access to people in remote communities, generating renewable ways to light people’s homes and community facilities.
