This chapter advances the UN SDG goals 7 and 11 by explores a possible sustainable development: building wave-energy capture systems that can make a significant contribution, meaning at least 10% of a nation’s energy needs.

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.
This article supports SDGs 5, 7 and 10 by integrating the principles of equality, diversity, and inclusivity (EDI) into all aspects to correct historical and structural inequalities, and establishing an inclusive culture to achieve the justice urgently needed for the global transition to net zero. the progress can be made in the fields of energy and artificial intelligence.
The ultimate goal of organic solar cells (OSCs) is to deliver cheap, stable, efficient, scalable, and eco-friendly solar-to-power products contributing to the global carbon neutral effort. This work demonstrates great potential to close the lab-to-fab gap of OSCs.

This chapter advances UN SDG goals 11, 13, and 7 by discussing the Smart City potential for contributing to the reduction of external dependence on fossil fuels and the promotion of renewable energy sources and the mitigation of environmental impacts and effects of climate change.
Spatial resolution of the geographical information system-based model

Background: Increasing air conditioner use for cooling indoor spaces has the potential to be a primary driver of global greenhouse gas emissions.

The UK Climate Change Agreements (CCA) aim to save energy and carbon emissions by way of energy efficiency targets in industrial sectors, while simultaneously reducing energy costs for participating organisations with large discounts on Climate Change Levies (CCL). This article is related to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy; SDG 13, Climate Action; and SDG 9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; as it demonstrates the ways in which governments can not only improve energy efficiency but also benefit industrial sectors.
Solar panels and wind turbines
In the effort to combat climate change and reduce energy consumption, largescale energy efficiency improvements to residential and commercial properties are a key aspect of the UK Government's Clean Growth Strategy. This article discusses the history of The Green Deal and the legal implications for landlords and tenants of the private rented sector. The need for energy-efficient homes and commercial properties relates to SDG 7, Affordable and Clean Energy, which aims to ensure access to affordable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. Affordable and clean energy for all will combat climate change by reducing energy consumption and emissions, thus relating this article to SDG 13, Climate Action.
