To support this work, the Group will have access to SEforALL resources, such as its heat maps - a tool to help focus resources for maximum impact across energy access, energy efficiency and renewables. The maps show global progress on sustainable energy based on information from a variety of sources, including more than 80 indicators (the type of energy used, the quality of electricity grids, energy providers, etc.).



This partnership with SEforALL reinforces Schneider Electric& Society barometer, which includes an indicator on the number of underprivileged people having received training in energy-related jobs (150,000 people between 2015 and 2017).
