UN-Energy Plan of Action Towards 2025 Launched

INTERNATIONAL

Against the backdrop of a global energy crisis and worsening climate emergency, the United Nations launched a roadmap called the ‘UN-Energy Plan of Action Towards 2025’.

It is a major step to catalyze the large-scale action and support needed for the transition to clean, affordable energy for all and net-zero emissions. The 'Plan of Action was launched by some 30 leading organisations comprising UN-Energy to catalyze action by 2025.

Along with this plan, the ‘Energy Compact Action Network’ was also launched to help the governments seeking help to achieve their clean energy goals. The network connects the governments requiring help with the governments and businesses that have pledged over $600 billion to support these commitments.

This Global Roadmap that emerged from the High-level Dialogue calls for strengthened efforts by the UN system supported by UN-Energy.

Coalitions supporting energy access and transition in Nigeria, Santiago, and Chile were announced, demonstrating the Network’s potential, as well as coalitions supporting green hydrogen and a better role for women in leading and benefiting from the energy transition.

     Following are the commitments made under this ‘plan of action’;
  • To support 500 million more people to gain access to electricity.
  • To support 1 billion more people to gain access to clean cooking solutions.
