Materials and technologies for energy conversion, saving and storage: A global network enabling capacity-building for sustainable energy in developing countries
MacLeod, Jennifer (2015) Materials and technologies for energy conversion, saving and storage: A global network enabling capacity-building for sustainable energy in developing countries. Chemistry International, 37(1), pp. 8-11.
Access to energy is a fundamental component of poverty abatement. People who live in homes without electricity are often dependent on dirty, time-consuming and disproportionately expensive solid fuel sources for heating and cooking.  In developing countries, the Human Development Index (HDI), which comprises measures of standard of living, longevity and educational attainment, increases rapidly with per capita electricity use.  For these reasons the United Nations has been making a concerted effort to promote global access to energy, first by naming 2012 the Year of Sustainable Energy for All,  and now by declaring 2014-2024 the Decade of Sustainable Energy for All.
