SDG7: Affordable and Clean Energy

The UN Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7)  'Affordable and Clean Energy' exists to engage with grand global challenges and facilitate the rapid expansion of modern renewable energy systems, particularly in heating and transport, and an acceleration of energy efficient technology. If we can do both we can help prevent an environmental catastrophe while improving the health and standards of living of hundreds of millions.
