SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy

The aim of SDG 7 is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all 

The Grantham Centre supports multiple research projects that work towards this goal. Saeed Mohammed Wazed is developing a solar-powered pump for agricultural use that will improve income, food and energy security in developing countries. Katie Sumner is examining the consequences of the decentralisation of energy production for local energy demand. And Teng Zhang is investigating the energy efficiency of electrically powered public transport.

Research Centres

We work closely with our partner sustainability teams at the TUoS. The researchers behind these groups are mentors to many of Grantham Scholars and are coming up with innovative new solutions to sustainability challenges.
