SDG 7 Affordable and clean energy

SDG7 Affordable and clean energy

While progress has been made in electricity access, 675 million are yet to be connected and 2.3 billion use polluting fuels for cooking. Renewable energy is increasingly viable. Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet, which is why we have to change the way we produce and consume energy.

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around SDG 7 Affordable and clean energy. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
