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.

This research presents the implementation of a flexible solar flow battery device which holds the potential to accelerate large-scale deployment of solar technologies, providing off-grid electrification to remote locations, developing SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy) and SDG 1 (no poverty).
The efficiency and power output of a PV module decreases at the peak of sunlight due to energy loss as heat and this reduces the module power output. To combat this, the authors propose a multi-concept cooling technique and evidence the increased productivity, furthering SDG 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.
Advancing goal 7, this paper assesses the key process strengths and limitations in microalgal biofuel production by reviewing the methods of biomass harvesting and lipid extraction that are currently available, along with the conditions that are favourable for lipid accumulation and the yield variations from different microalgae speices.

To advance SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 7 (clean energy) and 15 (life on land), this article specifically focuses on co-production and optimization of food and energy systems within the constraints of ecological sustainability. Specifically, it highlights how the role of nature and ecosystem services could be incorporated in engineering design.
Advancing goals 3 and 7, this article develops roadmaps to transition 53 towns and cities in the US, Canada and Maxico to 100% clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency in order to alleviate pollution's health and climate impacts.
A sensitivity analysis showed that policies should focus on increasing natural gas tariffs, carbon taxation, investment subsidies or combinations of these routes to encourage sustainable heating within built environments, contributing to SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy) and SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities).
