Sustainable Development Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy



Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy is essential for global development. Goal 7 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) focuses on providing clean and affordable energy to all, which is crucial for the advancement of agriculture, business, communications, education, healthcare, and transportation.

Global Targets by 2030:

• Achieve universal access to affordable, reliable, and modern energy services.
• Triple renewable energy capacity.
• Double annual energy-efficiency improvement rates in line with the COP28 agreement.

India-Centered Focus:

India is a key player in the global energy landscape and has been making significant strides towards achieving Goal 7. The country’s efforts are focused on several critical areas:

• Expanding Renewable Energy Projects: India aims to substantially increase its renewable energy capacity. The country has set ambitious targets for solar, wind, and hydroelectric power. Initiatives like the International Solar Alliance exemplify India’s leadership in promoting solar energy globally.

• Implementing Robust Energy-Efficiency Policies: The Indian government has launched various initiatives to enhance energy efficiency across different sectors. Programs such as the Perform, Achieve, and Trade (PAT) scheme aim to reduce energy consumption and emissions in industries.

• Promoting Sustainable and Clean Energy Technologies: Investment in innovative technologies is pivotal for India’s transition to clean energy. This includes advancements in battery storage, smart grid systems, and electric vehicles, which are crucial for integrating renewable energy into the national grid and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

By focusing on these areas, India is not only working towards meeting its energy needs but also contributing significantly to global climate goals. Achieving the targets of Goal 7 will require a collaborative effort from the government, private sector, and civil society to ensure sustainable and modern energy for all.
