1 Sustainable Energy for All A focus on efficiency and climate change Kandeh K. Yumkella, Director-General WMO, Geneva,

2 The Age of Planetary Boundaries and Resource Scarcity 3 billion more middle class consumers expected 80% rise in steel demand by 2030 Since the turn of the century, 147% increase in real commodity prices December 2010, FAO food price index at all time high (2010 to 2011 wheat prices rose by 75%) 100% increase in average cost to bring a new oil well into production in last two decades TGIF Water stress 2

3 The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, established a new High-Level Group on Sustainable Energy for All Co-chairs: Yumkella and Holliday (Bank of America) Multi-stakeholder group with strong private sector participation Full Action Agenda delivered at Rio+20,

4 By 2030: Universal Access Double the historical rate of improvement in Energy Efficiency Double the share of Renewable Energy in the overall mix 4

5 Implications of achieving universal modern energy access World energy demand 2030 World energy demand in the central scenario World CO 2 emissions 2030 World CO 2 emissions in the central scenario (right axis) Additional CO 2 emissions in the Energy for All Case (right axis) 0.7% Additional energy demand in the Energy for All Case 1.1% Source: IEA 5
