How many people do not have access to safe energy?

940 million people do not have access to electricity at home; 600 million of whom live in Sub-Saharan Africa and 250 million in South Asia.

There are 3 billion people (40% of the world population) who do not have access to clean fuels and technologies for cooking, instead burning solid fuels, such as charcoal, wood and crop residues. This comes at a large health cost as the indoor air pollution results at least 1.6 million premature deaths each year.
