Access to environmentally and socially sustainable energy is essential to reduce poverty. Over 1.4 billion people are still without access to electricity worldwide, almost all of whom live in developing countries.  About 2.5 billion use solid fuels—wood, charcoal and dung—for cooking and heating. Every year fumes and smoke from open cooking fires kill approximately 1.6 million people mostly women and children, from emphysema and other respiratory diseases.    World Bank - 2011

In terms of commercializing energy-related research, China, rather than the U.S., has emerged as both the lead producer and user of clean technologies.  See C/Net News -  Five Predictions for 2012
