The aim of SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
We fund multiple research projects that work towards SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy. For example, Saeed Mohammed Wazed is developing a solar-powered pump. This pump is for agricultural use and will improve income, food and energy security in developing countries. And Katie Sumner is examining the consequences of the decentralisation of energy production for local energy demand. Meanwhile, Teng Zhang is investigating the energy efficiency of electrically powered public transport.
