A few facts to start with: 13% of the world's population still does not have access to modern electricity; 3 billion people depend on coal, wood and charcoal, and animal waste for cooking and heating. Energy is the main cause of climate change, accounting for about 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions related to the combustion of fossil fuels in the production of heat and electricity for industry and transport. But energy is essential in getting work done, in security and in the fight against climate change. The world is struggling with the problem of rising sea levels, intense heat, floods and droughts. They affect the economy, ecosystems and human health. That is why it is so important to ensure that everyone has access to sources of clean, renewable, stable and modern energy, which will not only contribute to creating more sustainable communities, but also increase resilience to the effects of climate change. And standards help build and use all renewable energy systems safely and efficiently. You can read more about standardization work in the field of renewable energy in this issue.
