Power to the people
Sep 3, 2013

AROUND 1.5 billion people, or more than a fifth of the world's population, have no access to electricity, and a billion more have only an unreliable and intermittent supply. Of the people without electricity, 85% live in rural areas or on the fringes of cities. Extending energy grids into these areas is expensive: the United Nations estimates that an average of $35 billion-40 billion a year needs to be invested until 2030 so everyone on the planet can cook, heat and light their premises, and have energy for productive uses such as schooling. On current trends, however, the number of “energy poor” people will barely budge, and 16% of the world's population will still have no electricity by 2030, according to the International Energy Agency.

Good interesting information provided, like electricity or power is important for everyone of us. But we need to save or conserve energy for our future generation, until & unless steps are not taken now, future power generation plans seems bleak.

Solutions based on large global partnerships and cooperation are possible so that suitable electricity may be provided to all.

Using renewable energies and modifying water use in most areas of the planet is possible and as a result providing energy and water for the needed is also possible.

It needs our will. Let us all to decide that making and providing arms to harm is not the solution but providing energy and water along with sustainable behavior is a solution.

energy is forever you cannot destroy it or make it only transform it or harness it so all the energy that is being used today can be reused tomorrow we only have to find out how to harness it.

nothing new nuclear fusion and windmills are old hat, It's who owns the energy that's the problem and it won't be the workers unless we unite.

Ian,
I assumed it great because that post is given by a young member whose other four posts are also full of love for the planet and human.
