According to the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook - 2016 (WEO - 2016), approximately 1.2 billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity. In addition, at least 2.7 billion people around the world continue to depend on conventional biomass for cooking. Roughly 95 percent of the global population without access to electricity and modern cooking fuels reside in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia. About 80 percent of them live in rural communities.
