Over a billion people people worldwide have no access to the electricity that is a crucial facilitator of modern education, human health, economic development, etc.

The UN estimates that universal access to electricity by 2030 could be achieved for less than $50 billion per year – which is roughly equivalent to a $1.5 billion annual investment per OECD member country, 0.3% of 2011 US GDP, or approximately 10% of ExxonMobil’s 2011 revenue.
