Expo Milano 2015: thematic itinerary on Access to Energy
The impossibility of gaining access to modern forms of energy is a problem that affects almost half the world population. To extend access to modern and sustainable energy at global level is a right for all and a challenge to improve life in isolated communities.
The United Nations has set a goal: sustainable energy for all by 2030.
The Access to Energy itinerary at Expo Milano 2015 promotes knowledge and the importance of sustainable access to energy and shows how simple methods and best practices can really improve the lives of very many people. If you follow this thematic itinerary running through the pavilions you will discover projects, photographs and accounts of people who have experienced the introduction of modern energy to their everyday lives.
At Expo 2015 you can follow the thematic itinerary on Access to Energy in the pavilions of Brazil, Mauritania, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Enel, in the Pavilion Zero and in the stations of the UN program SAFE (Safe Access to Food and Energy).
Discover why energy means…
New solar, wind power and hydroelectric technologies developed in the energy sector are bringing sustainable light and warmth to the most remote areas where the electricity grids cannot reach.
Gaining correct access to energy means improving people’s health. Efficient stoves can greatly reduce the risk of respiratory diseases and the use of fossil fuels.
Access to energy in schools helps to narrow the educational gap between urban and rural areas. Simple technologies can increase the time that children can spend on study and learning.
Energy is needed for irrigation, refrigeration, for processing and transforming agricultural and food products. Energy is necessary for feeding the planet, a key theme of Expo 2015.
