This chapter addresses goal 7 by presenting an overview of the principles and techniques of distributed generation (DG) units.
To advance goal 7, this chapter discusses how the generation of electric power from renewable energy systems, like photovoltaic (PV), can meet the world’s energy needs.

Towards Sustainable Road Transport, 2014, Pages 65-85

The road transport scene is changing rapidly under the stimulus of new vehicle and engine technology, as well as global political and socio-economic pressures. Through discussion of these issues, this chapter advances goals 11 and 7.

This chapter advances goals 11 and 7 by analysing the users' perceptions of thirty-one sustainable commercial and institutional buildings located in a range of climatic zones.
Towns and cities worldwide emit significant pollution and are also increasingly affected by pollution's health and climate impacts.
The concern regarding alternate sources of energy is mounting day-by-day due to the effect of pollution that is damaging the environment.
Activities in the food-energy-water nexus require ecosystem services to maintain productivity and prevent ecological degradation.
The use of biomass for energy production is one way to ensure energy security and address the environmental issues related to the use of fossil fuels in developing countries.
Waste Li foils in the spent experimental Li-coin-cells may bring the potential risk and the waste of Li-resource if they aren't reasonably treated in time.
