Reducing global electricity demand and mitigating climate change
U4E supports developing countries and emerging economies, where electricity demand is set to more than double by 2030. An increasingly urbanized and growing middle class will require modern conveniences such as lighting, appliances and equipment. This will ultimately boost greenhouse gas emissions. A global transition to high-efficiency products will make it possible for people to enjoy the benefits of their increased incomes while minimizing their impact on climate change.
U4E has ongoing projects at both the regional level and in individual countries.
