This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.
Although it may be an "invisible disability", people with all types of diabetes are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. This chapter contributes to SDG 3 by addressing the patterns, risk factors and prevention tactics for the epidemic of diabetes in the US population.

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).

This mini-review succinctly describes the recent progresses in selective heterogeneous photocatalysis for the preparation of high value organics from lignocellulose-based waste as well as the perspective use of its fundamentals to develop a new concept of solar bio-refineries highlighting the challenges for the future and some needs to innovate. This article contributes to SDGs 7, 9 and 13.
In this short video, former UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, responds to two questions about the importance of data and partnerships in advancing the SDGs.
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.
This analysis of 160 cases of artificial intelligence (AI) being used for social good touches on all 17 of the SDGs, with Goal 3, good health and wellbeing, being particularly well documented in terms of AI for good.

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.
