This white paper examines whether ambitious renewable targets and private sector financing is compatible in Europe over the next decade. It directly relates to SDG 7 - affordable and clean energy, and SDG 13 - climate action.
This article addresses goals 7 and 11 by assessing the effects of residential building structure, socio-demographics, and ambient temperature conditions of a neighbourhood on overall energy expenditures of a household.
This book chapter addresses goals 7, 12, 13 and 14 by describing the fundamental issues of microalgae and their cultivation as a biofuel and alternative food source.
Directly contributing to SDGs 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning article analyses the feasibility of powering the Americas with renewable energy by 2030.
This article addresses goals 7, 11, and 9 by presenting a stochastic electricity market model.
To achieve SDG 7 (Affordable and clean energy) and SDG 13 (climate action) we need reliable and robust renewable energy sources. Solar photovoltaics (PV) is a very promising and rapidly growing technology (particularly in the developing world), but one of the problems of solar panels is that they “soil” – ie over time they become damaged by dust / pollution / animal waste / moss etc, and this limits their performance. This Joule study is the most accurate analysis of the impact of soiling, and sets out a pathway to how soiling can be mitigated.
This event primarily focusses on SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), exploring the technical and engineering challenges of addressing all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
This white paper examines whether increasing carbon prices are helping to reduce carbon emissions in the European Union. It directly relates to SDG 7 - affordable and clean energy, and SDG 13 - climate action.
This Special Issue, bringing together articles from Science of the Total Environment; Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews; Ecological Modelling, and Resources; Conservation and Recycling, highlights the increasing understanding that major systems servicing human well-being, food, energy and water (FEW) systems are inextricably connected, and any attempt to address one dimension in isolation of the others will lead to unexpected, undesired, and far from optimal consequences. Considering these three systems holistically as the Food-Energy-Water Nexus directly considers Sustainable Development Goals 2 (zero hunger), 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), and 12 (responsible consumption and production).
This journal article addresses goals 7, 12, 13 and 15 by discussing how the rising demand for renewable resources has increased silage maize production which has adverse environmental effects and therefore limits the advantages of renewable biomass.
