#7 Renewable Energy:

Aim is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable modern energy for all. Importance is placed on diversifying the market and increasing the share of renewable energy into the global energy mix—that way more stakeholders and everyday citizens can bear the expense of switching to clean energy. This will help create incentive to achieve other targets under this goal such as…

  • Doubling the rate of efficiency improvement
  • Enhancing international cooperation to facilitate access to energy research and technology, particularly in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and advanced/cleaner fossil fuel technology
  • Promoting investments in energy infrastructure

In the face of climate change, it is within countries’ best interests for the immediate health of generations today as well as the generations of tomorrow to switch to clean energy alternatives.
