Did you know that... two out of 10 people in the world do not having access to energy? That four out of 10 people use wood, charcoal, coal and dung for cooking and heating? Every year smoke from open cooking fires kills approximately 1.5 million people, mostly women and children, from emphysema and other respiratory diseases.
After partnering on a Renewable Energy Challenge Prize, Nesta and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) held this event to explore breakthrough energy innovations and the role of challenges to spur innovative solutions to these dire challenges.
