The idea of ‘sustainable energy for all’ has been built around three key objectives, ‘ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the global rate of improvement in energy ef ciency and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix‘ (UN, 2012). The rst of these three objectives is most relevant for this chapter. The project of ensuring universal access to modern energy services for all raises two basic questions:
• How do we define ‘access’? • What do we mean by‘all’?
