Access to energy program
Access to energy is shaping global development. It inspires progress, promoting economic and social development and improving living standards. Even today, as environmental concerns are becoming increasingly urgent and needs are constantly changing, 759 million people still have no access to energy*.
Given this situation, TotalEnergies is reaffirming its ambition to become the leader of responsible energy. It is committed to contributing to the success of the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN, especially in the area of access to energy - Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Since 2010, we have launched the energy access program for meeting the energy needs of people in emerging countries.
We develop solutions to improve daily life
Access to modern energy involves implementing sustainable, affordable, quality solutions that meet the ever-changing needs of individuals and communities. To this end, we have developed and commercialized a range of solar solutions including lamps and solar kits: the Sunshine range.
Our objectives are to get a double impact – societal and environmental:
- by improving the quality of life by enabling user living in off-grid areas to continue working after sunset or extend time with family and friends.
- by contributing to health and safety providing an alternative for traditionnal and expensive sources of energy (candles, kerosene lamps, batteries).
Since 2010, more than 4 million solar lanterns and kits have been distributed in more than 30 countries via distribution channels involving social entrepreneurs and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). These solar solutions improve the daily lives of more than 18 million people.
