Abstract

Electrification is indisputably one of the most effective ways to provide billions of people with clean water, sanitation, access to education, medical services, and communication technologies, which are objectives recently outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Electrification is also one of the integral parts in creating a solid educational foundation for vocational training and collaborative worldwide idea-sharing among current and future visionaries, entrepreneurs, and leaders striving to bring their communities together in creating community-based infrastructure and sustainable business opportunities.
