Access to modern energy services is considered a global imperative. It is a multi-dimensional and cross-cutting issue in socio-economic development and environmental sustainability. Energy poverty is a difficult challenge, but it is a challenge that contains an investment opportunity for the entire international community through strategic partnerships.
The overall goal of the Oil & Gas Industry Energy Access Platform (EAP) is to contribute to the achievement of SDG7 on universal energy access through the enormous potential of the industry to build upon its leadership, technology and much relevant business experience.
