ANNETTE HESLOP AND ENERGY4ALL

Below article by Harvey Tordoff in the United Kingdom provides a brief history and the pathways to, now it is called: Sustainable Energy For All | SEForALL
Initially, its short form used as SE4ALL in 2011, which is also one of the 17 Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals. In it, SDG#7 is specifically dedicated to:  
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
* * *
At the United Nations Framework on Climate Change conference in Katowice in December 2018 the US, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait rejected a motion to welcome the latest study.  Australia remained silent.  But despite national Governments taking a strategic stance over what they see as their own short-term interests, progress is made.  I want to tell you about Annette Heslop, who (also in December 2018) was presented with an MBE* from HRH Prince William.  An MBE (Member of the British Empire) is one of the highest awards given to British civilians, and was in recognition of Annette’s contribution to community-owned renewable energy projects.
