Energy sector management assistance program : 2013 annual report (English)

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is a global knowledge and technical assistance program administered by the World Bank. It provides analytical and advisory services to low- and middle income countries to increase their know-how and institutional capacity to achieve environmentally sustainable energy solutions for poverty reduction and economic growth. ESMAP is funded by Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Japan, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, as well as the World Bank. As the global tracking framework report makes clear, there is a great deal of work to be done if those goals are to be met. About 1.2 billion people around the world still lack access to electricity, and 2.8 billion lack accesses to modern household fuels. Household air pollution caused by cooking with traditional fuels contributes to about four million premature deaths a year, most of them women and children. Renewable energy accounts for only 18 percent of the global energy mix, with most of that coming from traditional biomass fuels such as charcoal and firewood. While the world has made steady progress in the past two decades, that improvement will have to speed up, and hundreds of billions of dollars in new financing will have to be mobilized, to achieve the three SE4ALL goals by 2030.
