Impact(s): Energy powers development in all sectors — transportation, industry, crop production and agricultural processing — and increases revenues for small and medium-sized businesses. Energy moves water, enables communication and powers school computers, and health clinics. As their economies grow, developing countries face increased demands for adequate energy services. Expanding the number of people with access to modern energy services reduces reliance on inefficient and polluting fuels, like wood, animal dung or crop waste.
