This chapter advances UN SDG goals 7 and 13 by evaulating the potential of hydrogen energy globally as an alternative to fossil fuels for energy and transportation.
This chapter advances UN SDG goals 7 and 13 by discussing the impacts of electric vehicles on energy management in homes and residential microgrids and identifying ways to minimize the daily energy cost by optimal scheduling of resources, electric vehicles, and loads.

As we enter the ninth year since the adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, the pressing need to meet these ambitious objectives becomes ever more evident.

This chapter advances UN SDG goal 7 and 13 by supporting clean, affordable energy for transition, focusing on affordability and impacts on energy transition and climate change.
The demand for solar energy as a clean way to power human lives is increasing, but solar panels are land-intensive and may compete for space with farms. In this article, the authors examine how agrivoltaics (combining farming and solar technologies) can provide synergistic benefits together rather than in isolation, showing positive benefits in climate mitigation, climate resilience, and land equivalent ratios. This contributes to SDGs 2 (ensuring the promotion of sustainable agriculture), 7 (harnessing sunlight to power society), and 13 (agrivoltaics as a way to combat climate change).

Heavy duty freight transportation is a key part of global transportation, but is a large contributor to growing CO2 emissions. Here the authors design an on-board system for heavy duty vehicles to capture CO2 as it is released. This supports SDGs 7 (reducing CO2 emissions toward clean energy), 9 (modifications to existing vehicles to mitigate carbon emissions) and 13 (reducing emissions that contribute to climate change).
