SDG Goal 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

SDG 7 focuses on access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and  modern  energy  for all. Modern society depends on reliable and affordable energy services to function smoothly and to develop equitably. Therefore, well-established, modern energy systems are needed with improved energy efficiency and increasing share of renewable energy. Intensive development patterns have  historically relied on inexpensive and energy- dense fossil fuels, which  also  happen  to  be the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change. However, new, clean technologies are available that can reorient development along   a more sustainable trajectory. SDG 7 in an EU context involves looking at developments in energy consumption, energy supply and access to affordable energy.
