Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd, and it is a global event aimed at raising awareness and promoting action towards environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and since then, it has become one of the largest civic events in the world, with over one billion people participating in activities such as clean-up campaigns, tree-planting initiatives, and educational programs. The theme for 2023 is Invest in Our Planet, a campaign that will focus on engaging governments, institutions, businesses and individuals in the fight against the climate crisis.
This article, written by ICIS, a RELX business, explores how chemicals and energy sectors, both of which are largely fossil fuel dependent, are navigating sustainability and the movement towards net zero. This article relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy.
ICIS, a RELX business, argues that because of unpredictable weather and environmental conditions, industry cannot run alone on electricity. Hydrogen could answer these problems and more, as it offers all the benefits of natural gas, like flexible power generation and ease of storage, but when burned it emits zero carbon. This article relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy.
This article, related to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy, analyses the factors influencing the global energy transition, it's impact on trading markets and business, and the new energy sources that we are transitioning into.
What is renewable hydrogen and could it help lead the way towards reaching SDG 7, affordable and clean energy? ICIS, a RELX business, dives into the background and implications of the Delegated Act (DA), which outlines the minimum shares of renewable energy in the transport sector and sets out the conditions a hydrogen producer would need to meet in order for their hydrogen to be consider renewable (green) hydrogen.

Restrictions on indoor and outdoor NO<inf>2</inf> emissions to reduce disease burden for pediatric asthma in China: A modeling study
Background: Epidemiological studies have reported the associations between nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and pediatric asthma incidence, but unable to ascertain indoor NO2 sources.
Born in 1978, Pollutec is recognized today as the reference meeting place for environment professionals. The event develops multiple SDGs, including SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action).
Pumped Hydro Energy Storage for Hybrid Systems - Chapter 2 - Need for pumped hydro energy storage systems
Felix A. Diawuo, Roland Teye Amanor, Chapter 2 - Need for pumped hydro energy storage systems, Editor(s): Amos T. Kabo-Bah, Felix A. Diawuo, Eric O. Antwi, Pumped Hydro Energy Storage for Hybrid Systems, Academic Press, 2023, Pages 23-41, ISBN 9780128188538
This chapter provides information on the benefits of pumped hydro energy storage as a means of providing consisent renewable energy power generation, offering power network management including load balancing and peak shaving, and grid stabilization with emphasis on frequency and voltage regulation. Additionally, the chapter highlights some of the different pumped hydro energy storage hybrid designs for both off-grid and grid-tied applications while the impact of climate change is discussed.
