SDG Goal #7: Renewable Energy
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations in 2015. The goals are broad and somewhat interdependent, yet each has a separate list of targets to achieve. Achieving all 169 targets would signal accomplishing all 17 goals. The SDGs cover social and economic development issues including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanization, environment, and social justice.
The renewable energy goal is dedicated to ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.
Sustainable energy is an opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.
- By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services
- By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency
- By 2030, enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research and technology, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and advanced and cleaner fossil-fuel technology, and promote investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology.
With Egain, energy use in real estate is reduced by 10-20% through smart energy optimization using artificial intelligence specially designed for apartment buildings. The result is improved operating budget and increased value of the property. Unlike many technology vendors, egain does not require any high initial investments. Instead, it offers low operational cost, a quick return, lower maintenance costs, and a stronger balance sheet.
