Is technology democratic?

Talking with a friend about science, we agreed that “remote” science tools such as as satellite imagery, on line global databases, etc, are more democratic. The world wide web as well for information.
But looking at this picture I realised to what extent this cannot be true due a major constraint: lack of energy network in some focal parts of the world.

Is then energy provision the necessary step for ensuring free access to technology and information?
