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, Grantham Scholar Reena Sayani is researching sustainable energy for all. You can find out all about Reena’s work with mini-grids, AI and big energy in our interview with her.
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.
