Energy is an essential factor for sustainable development and poverty eradication; yet, 1.1 billion people do not have access to electricity. 2.8 billion still rely on wood, charcoal, animal, -and crop waste or other solid fuels to cook their food and heat their homes. For the over 125 million people affected by conflict-related crises and natural disasters, the situation is even more dire. With a huge shortage in funding as well as limited policies and practice on sustainable -and clean energy provision within the humanitarian community, current energy practices in camps are often dirty, inefficient, polluting, unsafe for the users, and damaging to the surrounding environment.

Energy Theatre will be a unique platform to discuss the challenges, opportunities and benefits.
