To achieve a global energy transition, we cannot ignore the matter of energy poverty. UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 is all about “ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”. While action is needed from the side of policymakers to maintain the Energy Trilemma balance, the entrepreneurial community has a role to play in ensuring access to energy for all – in a sustainable way. Who are the startups out there finding new business models for all parts of the energy supply chain, while improving conditions for underrepresented individuals and areas around the world? Most importantly for this category, we are looking for startups that have the potential to make the biggest dent in ensuring access to affordable energy for all, in an equitable way. We are looking for diverse solutions for technology, financing, awareness, capacity building  (to name a few), that can reach far and wide, have a very clear social drive and most of all, will make a large impact.

Key words (not limited to): SDG-7, ‘the Energy Trilemma’, equity, affordability, access, reliability, environmental sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and social drive.
