Recent statistics have shown a promising future for global solar development. The most recent BP Statistical Review of World Energy has shown that renewable energy was the fastest growing energy source in 2017, with solar being a major contributor.
Although health is among the most basic of human needs, access to reliable and safe health care is not distributed equally geographically, with displaced populations and many residing in rural areas especially lacking access. About one billion people globally rely on healthcare facilities that lack electricity. Solar energy has the power to change this and to facilitate the process of bringing quality healthcare to vulnerable populations everywhere.
