7. Affordable and clean energy - Sustainable development indicators
SDG 7 'affordable and clean energy'
SDG 7 calls for ensuring universal access to modern energy services, improving energy efficiency and increasing the share of renewable energy. To accelerate the transition to an affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy system, countries need to facilitate access to clean energy research, promote investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology.
Enhanced international cooperation is also necessary for developing countries to construct infrastructure and upgrading technology for energy services.
In the EU context, monitoring SDG 7 involves looking at developments in energy consumption, energy supply, and access to affordable energy.
