So what does the future look like? As our population continues to grow, so will the demand for cheap energy. This results in increasing reliance on fossil fuels and holds drastic consequences to our climate. With the disparity of accessibility to clean energy across the globe, it’s increasingly important to invest in the accessibility for renewable energy. Investing in solar, wind and thermal power, improving energy productivity, and ensuring energy for all is vital if we are to achieve a future that does not rely on fossil fuels. Expanding infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide clean and more efficient energy in all countries will encourage accessibility and help the environment too.
