This piece provides insights into what has caused solar photovoltaic costs to fall so rapidly, such that in many parts of the world solar power plants are now more economical than coal- or gas-fired plants. This relates directly to SDG 7 (affordable & clean energy).
Contributing to SDG 13 (climate action), this rigorous study shows that renewable electricity systems could work equally well in both historical and future climates, despite changing weather patterns.
Energy Storage & Connected Systems 2018, held in association with the Renewable Energy Association will bring together key industry figures to focus on the future of energy in the UK.
Energy Storage & Connected Systems 2018, held in association with the Renewable Energy Association will bring together key industry figures to focus on the future of energy storage in the UK; covering practical examples of storage that are currently being deployed and how they integrate into a broader network of connected systems including smart buildings, grids and electric vehicle infrastructure.
Furthering SDGs 2 and 12, this report argues that feeding a population of 10 billion people by 2050 with a healthy and sustainable diet will be impossible without transforming eating habits, improving food production and reducing food waste.
To advance goal 12 and 13, this report provides guidance on the “ambition loop” — a positive feedback loop in which bold Government policies and private sector leadership reinforce each other, and together, take climate action to the next level.

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.
