Energy poverty and a sustainable transition: Dilemma or opportunity?

Look around you and imagine not having access to energy for cooking, lighting, heating, and other essentials. Dr. Scott Tinker, Chairman of the Switch Energy Alliance, explains to us that this is normal life for about one third of the people on the planet – we call it energy poverty. An important part of finding smart and sustainable energy solutions for people where they live is being knowledgeable about the alternatives.

In the new energy documentary, «Switch On», now premiering in Europe, Scott goes on a global venture to see how the developing world will power its people. On his journey, he meets leaders, entrepreneurs and everyday citizens working to eradicate ‘energy poverty’ in their countries. Watch this session, in which he discusses energy poverty and its possible solutions.
