Connecting economic growth, social equity and sustainable environment is the resource “energy”. According to the United Nations, development is not possible without sustainable energy (UN 2012). Energy policy is not on a basic condition for economic and industrial development but also critical for health. Thus, reducing poverty and providing health for all is linked to ensuring universal and sustainable access to modern day energy as indicated in within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
