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.
