Sustainable Development Goals: #7 Affordable and Clean Energy

In today's world, energy has emerged as a fundamental component of sustainable development. The seventh goal of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations is "Affordable and Clean Energy." This goal focuses on global energy transformation and significant changes in the energy sector, aiming for accessible and renewable energy sources.

Sürdürülebilir kalkınma amaçları erişilebilir ve temiz enerji

7.1. The goal is to ensure universal access to affordable, reliable, and modern energy services by 2030. With this goal, the aim is to reduce energy poverty worldwide and meet everyone's basic energy needs. Access to reliable and sustainable energy sources enables communities to develop economically, socially, and environmentally in a continuous manner.

7.2. The goal is to significantly increase the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix by 2030. By replacing traditional fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, the objective is to reduce carbon emissions in energy production and combat climate change. This aims to achieve a sustainable transformation in the energy sector and promote wider use of renewable energy.

7.3. With this target, the aim is to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030. Increasing energy efficiency ensures more effective and efficient use of energy resources. This is a crucial step towards energy conservation and sustainability.

7.a. The objective is to enhance international cooperation and strengthen investments in clean energy research, technology, and infrastructure to facilitate access to clean energy research and technologies. Research and technological advancements in areas such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and cleaner fossil fuel technologies support solutions for a sustainable energy future.

7.b. This goal aims to expand infrastructure and develop technology to provide modern and sustainable energy services to everyone, particularly in developing countries, including least developed countries, small island developing states, and landlocked developing countries. Strengthening energy infrastructure in these countries contributes to sustainable development and improves the quality of life for communities.

The goals of accessible and clean energy aim to promote transformation in the energy sector and provide environmental, economic, and social benefits. Achieving these goals requires technological innovations, policy regulations, investments, and global cooperation. Increasing the widespread use of renewable energy sources and improving energy efficiency will lead us towards a sustainable energy future.
