Financially Solvent Utilities for Improved Energy Access
By Southern Voice and Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP)
Financially Solvent Utilities for Improved Energy Access Energy is at the heart of achieving many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—from eradicating poverty through access to healthcare, education, and economic growth, to combating climate change through clean and green energy.

Join us for a discussion on the financial challenges faced by utilities in making energy accessible to all.
