RAISING GLOBAL ENERGY AMBITIONS: THE 1,000 KWH MODERN ENERGY MINIMUM
Payne Institute Fellows Todd Moss, Johannes Urpelainen, Director Morgan Bazilian, and others write about how energy is fundamental to modern living and any competitive prosperous economy. The SDG7 calls for modern energy for all, but the indicator for tracking progress against this goal is meeting a very low level of residential electricity consumption. They propose a new Modern Energy Minimum of 1,000 kWh per person per year, inclusive of both household and non-household electricity consumption. January 26, 2021.
