SDG 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030
WHY IT MATTERS
The way in which we produce and use energy is at the heart of our response to climate change. Our current reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable and harmful to the planet. Renewable energy solutions are becoming cheaper, more reliable and more efficient every day. Ireland needs to produce more of its own energy by investing further in our renewable energy resources to eliminate our dependence on imported fossil fuels. Worldwide, there are still almost 1 billion people living without electricity and 3 billion people relying on wood, coal, charcoal or animal waste for cooking and heating.
