Sustainable Energy for ALL (SE4ALL)

The UN’s Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SE4All) aims to achieve universal energy access and doubling energy efficiency and renewable energy by 2030, using Public-Private Partnerships and focusing on “High Impact Opportunities (HIO)” areas.



The UN General Assembly has declared 2014-2024 the decade of Sustainable Energy for All. To catalyse action the UN Secretary General launched the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative, a global partnership and campaign aiming to achieve three interrelated goals by 2030 - universal energy access, double the rate of improvement in energy efficiency and double the share of renewables in the global energy matrix. Under the guidance of the Advisory Board co-chaired by the UN Secretary-General and the President of the World Bank, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General/CEO on Sustainable Energy for All spearheads this initiative and directs a Global Facilitation Team.

The session featured a strategic discussion of how the work of hubs can add value and help accelerate private sector initiatives on the ground and vice versa how to ensure that private sector learning informs the work of hubs in a systematic manner. The discussion took as its point of departure the tentative work plans of two of the hubs.
