Goal 7 sets a target to increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix by 2030. Nominated for the Elsevier Atlas Award in March 2018, this article looks at wind energy in Brazil and examines the approaches taken, such as investment coordination mechanisms, that have reduced risks enough to make wind energy a viable option.

To achieve goals 7 and 13, we need more renewable energy, and yet the intermittency of renewable sources like wind or solar power means there is a pressing need to develop effective energy storage systems. This Joule study analyses the application-specific lifetime cost for a range of different electricity storage technologies. The analysis strongly suggests that specialized technologies are unlikely to compete with lithium ion battery storage for nearly all applications.

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Volume 99, January 2019, Pages 66-82

This paper advances SDGs 9 and 12 by investigating the construction of strategies aiming to up-scale low-carbon innovations from pilot to full commercial scale. The authors reveal that the growth plans conveyed in the roadmaps are overly optimistic and they call for policy rooted in realistic expectations and adequate to the phase of innovation.

Municipal wastewater is a remarkable energy source but in order to recover the energy present efficiently, it is crucial to up-concentrate the organics in wastewaters. This paper contributes to SDG 7 by providing a comprehensive evaluation of the current practices applied to up-concentrate organic matter, as well as various up-to-date treatment configurations.
Advancing goals 7 and 14, this article examines the potential ecological effects of submarine power cables during installation, operation and decommissioning phases and sets recommendations for better monitoring and mitigation of the most significant impacts
