Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

This Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) is about ensuring access to clean and affordable energy, which is key to the development of agriculture, business, communications, education, healthcare and transportation. Ensuring universal access to affordable electricity by 2030 means investing in clean energy sources such as solar, wind and thermal. Expanding infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide clean energy in all developing countries is a crucial goal that can both encourage growth and help the environment. In other words, access to energy is an important pillar for the wellbeing of the people as well as for economic development and poverty alleviation.
