While the high cost of energy affects all of us, hit hardest are over 62,000 Wisconsin Veterans attempting to survive on incomes well below the poverty level

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 20, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Along with engaging and raising public awareness, KWW/CF-Heat For Heroes has also set a fundraising goal of $500,000 for 2017 to respond to the growing unmet needs of struggling Veterans. During 2016 alone 3,848 Heroes were provided the emergency assistance necessary to offset a life threatening situation from occurring. This was due to the generosity of others right in our communities. Beginning February 1st, the campaign is calling upon Wisconsinites to not only give their financial support, but also show their commitment individually through the Citizen’s Pledge with opportunities at and on Facebook and Twitter at #pledgeforvets.

LONDON, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ 360WiseNews | — % Penetration & Numbers of Households

A Large Opportunity for Energy and Environmental Services – Historical 1900 to 2015, Forecast 2016 to 2050. In 2016 electricity access is widespread, 84% of households having a connection to a grid. With 70% having piped access water is less widely available, but not all of these are direct into homes, some are connections to an outside tap, but still count as household connections. Gas is very widely distributed in cylinders, but piped gas is only available in around 90 countries and 25% of households are connected.

Over the next 35 years the market opportunity presented by the increased numbers of households consuming electricity and gas will be enormous. Today’s 1.6 billion electrified households will double with an additional 800 million by 2050; the 1.4 billion with piped water will expand by approximately 400 million with more advanced piping will be installed in many, and the ½ billion households with a piped gas connection will expand by 365 million.

Some trends are hidden. Many population will grow, others have already stated a decline. In the 10 countries with the highest declines in population threatening their economic future the combined loss will be 50 million people. But because households are becoming smaller they will gain 25 million electrical connections and with increased gasification and 175 million gas consumers.

Asia is the leader today, with 48.2% of new electricity connections, but this will drop to 35.7% by 2035, while Sub-Saharan Africa will double in share from 13.1% to 27.7%.

All this is mapped out in these databases, the past, present and future. These databases quantify the current market and where it is, how large it will be in the future and where it will be.
The database contains 14 spreadsheets with data and charts. Keep Reading
