Implementing partners. [4] The leading sources of the greenhouse gas savings that countries need to focus on in order to realize their commitments under the Paris Agreement are switching fuels to renewable energy and enhancing end-use energy efficiency. 7. Plans call for particular attention to infrastructure support for the least developed countries, small islands and land-locked developing countries.[3]. Target 7.b: By 2030, expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing countries, in particular least developed countries, small island developing States, and land-locked developing countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support UNDP. Globally, 85.3 per cent of the population had access to electricity in 2014, an increase of only 0.3 percentage points since 2012. [24], According to UN Women, energy interventions that take into perspective women's needs have a significant impact on addressing gender equality and community energy poverty while also ensuring the equal participation of women in energy intervention that in turn benefits the society at large.[25]. Global primary energy intensity (ratio of energy used per unit of GDP) improved from 5.9 in 2010 to 5.1 in 2016, a rate of improvement of 2.3 per cent, which is still short of the 2.7 per cent annual rate needed to reach target 3 of Sustainable Development Goal 7. International financial flows to developing countries in support of clean and renewable energy reached $18.6 billion in 2016, almost doubling from $9.9 billion in 2010. By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency Investing Partners. Despite this progress, close to 3 billion people still rely primarily on inefficient and polluting cooking systems. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. Sustainable Energy for All - works in partnership with the UN and world leaders to drive faster action towards SDG 7 in line with the Paris Agreement. The renewable energy share of total final energy consumption gradually increased from 16.6 per cent in 2010 to 17.5 per cent in 2016, though much faster change is required to meet climate goals. Meaningful improvements will require higher levels of financing and bolder policy commitments, together with the willingness of countries to embrace new technologies on a much wider scale. Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Energy drives development, but our continued unsustainable and inefficient energy use impedes progress in areas such as health and climate change, and creates socio-economic barriers to equal development for all. [4], Custodian agencies are in charge of reporting on the following indicators:[16][17], The UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) meets every year for global monitoring of the SDGs, under the auspices of the United Nations economic and Social Council. [21] Financial capital in third world countries for renewable energy are increasing.[22]. In the least developed countries, the proportion of the people with access to electricity more than doubled between 2000 and 2016.

Latin America and the Caribbean and Eastern and South-Eastern Asia maintained strong progress, exceeding 98 per cent access to electricity by 2018. <br> Renewable energy share in the total final energy consumption. Implementing partners. MOEM. The proportion of the global population with access to electricity has increased steadily, from 79 per cent in 2000 to 85 per cent in 2012. The reduction was driven mainly by greater efficiencies in the industry and transport sectors. Much faster growth is required to meet long-term climate goals. [4], The fourth target of SDG 7 is Target 7.A: "By 2030, enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research and technology, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and advanced and cleaner fossil-fuel technology, and promote investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology"[9], It has one indicator: Indicator 7.4.1 is the "International financial flows to developing countries in support of clean energy research and development and renewable energy production, including in hybrid systems". Sustainable Development Goals Data Hub; Goal 7 - Affordable and clean energy; Goal 7 - Affordable and clean energy. [12], Finance for energy access remains far below the investment needed to achieve SDG 7 by 2030: USD 41 billion of annual investment is required to achieve universal residential electrification, but only one third, or USD 16 billion, was tracked by Sustainable Energy for All in 20 high-impact countries in 2018. By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services, Proportion of population with access to electricity, Proportion of population with primary reliance on clean fuels and technology. The share of renewables in final energy consumption increased modestly, from 17.3 per cent in 2014 to 17.5 per cent in 2015. NDAL. However, some 840 million people around the world are still without access to electricity. Global primary energy intensity (the energy used per unit of GDP) improved by 2.2 per cent annually, from 5.2 per cent in 2015 to 5.0 per cent in 2017, but was still short of the 2.7 per cent annual rate needed to reach target 7.3. International financial flows to developing countries in support of clean and renewable energy reached $21.4 billion in 2017, 13 per cent higher than in 2016 and a twofold increase from flows committed in 2010. However, that progress is still not sufficient to meet the target of doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency. An integrated approach is crucial for progress across the multiple goals. Remaining Non-Core. Plus, a 12 foot long Uranium Pellet lasts about 6 years. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential. [19] It also noted that in Sub-Saharan Africa, deficits in electricity are increasingly concentrate. MOIC. Sustainable Development Goal 7 Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all The UN explains: "Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Source: Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, Report of the Secretary-General, https://undocs.org/en/E/2020/57. In addition, if Sustainable Development Goals 7, 13 and related Goals are to be met, much higher levels of ambition are required with regard to renewable energy, including transportation and heating. The world is making good progress on increasing access to electricity and improving energy efficiency. More telling is the fact that modern renewable energy consumption, which excludes solid biofuels used for traditional purposes, grew rapidly, at a rate of 4 per cent a year between 2010 and 2012, and accounted for 60 per cent of all new power-generating capacity in 2014. The share of renewable energy in final energy consumption grew modestly from 2012 to 2014, from 17.9 per cent to 18.3 per cent. However, national priorities and policy ambitions still need to be strengthened to put the world on track to meet the energy targets for 2030, Source: Report of the Secretary-General, The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018. [4], Governments can increase this potential by strengthening mandatory energy efficiency policies, providing targeted fiscal or financial incentives, leveraging market-based mechanisms, and disseminating high-quality information about energy efficiency. FAO. [13], The second target of SDG 7 is Target 7.2: "By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix."[9]. GEF. 7. [12][clarification needed] There are strong disparities among countries and regions. [clarification needed] It is estimated that around 620 million people would still lack access to electricity if the world continues to move at the current pace. Locations of our Key Initiatives Linked to this Sustainable Development Goal . The challenge is to increase the share of renewable energy in the heat and transport sectors, which together account for 80 per cent of global energy consumption. [4] Of the three end uses of renewables (electricity, heat, and transport) the use of renewables grew fastest with respect to electricity. Implementing partners. Sustainable Development Goals; Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy « » Between 1990 and 2010, the number of people with access to electricity has increased by 1.7 billion, and as the global population continues to rise so will the demand for cheap energy. [4][page needed]. Sustainable Development Goal 7 Affordable and Clean Energy Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. [4] Between 2018 and 2030, the annual average investment will need to reach approximately $55 billion to expand energy access, about $700 billion to increase renewable energy and $600 billion to improve energy efficiency. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". [4] SDG 7 and Climate change mitigation (SDG 13) are closely related and complementary. Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today, including for example adaptation to climate change, food security, health, education, sustainable cities, jobs and transport. A progress update by the United Nations in 2020 found that international financial flows to developing countries in support of clean and renewable energy reached $21.4 billion in 2017. This was driven by the expansion of wind and solar technologies. Source: Report of the Secretary-General, Special edition: progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, Ensuring access to affordable, reliable and modern energy for all has come one step closer due to recent progress in electrification, particularly in LDCs, and improvements in industrial energy efficiency. SDG 7 has five targets, measured with six indicators, which are to be achieved by 2030. Entities. More efforts need to be exerted to scale up the work on the ground and to witness progress. [15], Energy sector investment related to all SDG 7 targets will need to more than double in order to achieve these goals. FAO. Still, 1.1 billion people are without this valuable service. UNDP. Low human development and unequal access to energy are directly related to each other. As of August 2020, there is no data available for this indicator. This could make it easier to make infrastructural changes to the energy industry, while people are less reliant. That means that 1.06 billion people, predominantly rural dwellers, still function without electricity. Despite this progress, some 800 million people remain without electricity while access to clean cooking fuels and technologies needs dedicated attention. Proud members of: About . The COVID-19 pandemic has also vastly decreased prices of oil. Sustainable Development Goal 7 Affordable and Clean Energy Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. 7.1 By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services. In addition, a survey conducted in selected developing countries revealed that one quarter of the health facilities surveyed were not electrified, and another quarter had unscheduled outages, affecting their capacity to deliver essential health services. This leads to reduced poverty rates poverty especially amongst women as they spend more time than men cooking and collecting water and fuel. Half of those people live in sub-Saharan Africa. 7. Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7 or Global Goal 7) is one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. Energy is highly linked to poverty and inequality since clean energy access is essential for women's health, education and productive activities. As the population increased over the years, the demand for these non-renewable resources also increased many fold, thus pushing the environment to the brink of destruction. Still, current progress is only about two thirds of the pace needed to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency. Globally, energy intensity decreased by 1.7 per cent per year from 2010 to 2012. [9], Key strategies for closing this gap will include private sector financing, versatile solutions that include decentralized renewables, and efforts to both extend rural electrification and cope with urban densification. Storage management may require even more energy consumption. GEF. Entities. History . While this might motivate companies to increase demand for oil, more likely, the unprofitable oil situation will cause corporations to relocate funding to renewable sources as opposed to oil. Goal 7 Targets. [2], It was reported in 2020 that Indicator 7.b.1 might be removed as it is identical with indicator 12.1.1 of SDG 12. [14] The report before that was from May 2019.[18]. Access to energy is a very important pillar for the wellbeing of the people as well as economic development and poverty alleviation. NFA. [citation needed] A representative at the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development stated that "despite improved access to electricity globally, nearly one billion people continue to live without electricity and three billion people lack access to clean cooking solutions and are exposed to dangerous levels of indoor air pollution". VPO. Sustainable energy is one of 17 Global Goals that make up the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Solar and wind power still make up a relatively minor share of energy consumption, despite their rapid growth in recent years. [12], In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for reliable and affordable electricity in health centers. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. The pandemic has highlighted the need for reliable and affordable electricity in health centres. PO-RALG. Core funds. Progress in every area of sustainable energy falls short of what is needed to achieve energy access for all and to meet targets for renewable energy and energy efficiency. The seventh of 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve affordable and clean energy for all by 2030, Target 7.1: Universal access to modern energy, Target 7.2: Increase global percentage of renewable energy, Target 7.3: Double the improvement in energy efficiency, Target 7.4: Promote access to research, technology and investments in clean energy, Target 7.5: Expand and upgrade energy services for developing countries. MoIE. With only marginal year-on-year increases in commitments for energy, it is becoming increasingly clear that the financing community is failing to deliver on SDG7. Even though the absolute level of renewable energy consumption has grown by more than 18 per cent since 2010, only since 2012 has the growth of renewables outpaced the growth of total energy consumption. MOFA. It’s three core targets are the foundation for our work: Ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services Increase substantially the share of … Locations of our Key Initiatives Linked to this Sustainable Development Goal. Core funds. [14] One quarter of the health facilities in a number of surveyed developing countries are not electrified, and another quarter has unscheduled outages. Implementing partners. Entities. MoTE. Access to clean cooking fuels and technologies increased to 63 per cent in 2018, from 60 per cent in 2015 and 56 per cent in 2010. GEF. [14] Hydropower projects received 46 per cent of 2017 flows, while solar projects received 19 per cent, wind 7 per cent and geothermal 6 per cent. From 2012 to 2014, three quarters of the world’s 20 largest energy-consuming countries had reduced their energy intensity — the ratio of energy used per unit of GDP. Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7 or Global Goal 7) is one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. Investing Partners. However, millions of people throughout the world still lack such access, and progress on facilitating access to clean cooking fuels and technologies is too slow. Such deficiencies weaken the health system’s response to the current health crisis. More than 3 billion people, the majority of them in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, are still cooking without clean fuels and more efficient technologies. <br> Energy intensity measured in terms of primary energy and GDP. The first target of SDG 7 is Target 7.1: "By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services". [20], The SDGs are all interlinked. It also noted that from the years 2010 to 2018, the global population without access to electricity went down from 1.2 billion to 789 million.
