I see clean and affordable energy holistically, an integrator to the global good. Clean and affordable energy supports private sector growth. In many developing countries, this leads to a reduction of unemployment and jobs for youth. Those economic opportunities can help reduce the attraction to violent extremism. Energy also is critical to the functioning of a country’s health system; to education, providing young people around the world with the opportunity to get an education; and to women’s safety, increasing safety by illuminating roads and communities.
