The achievement of the seventh sustainable development goal SDG#7 (i.e., affordable, and clean energy) aims at providing access to affordable and clean energy- promoting renewable energy production and use as an alternative to the extensive use of conventional pollutant energy resources. In the efforts to reduce risks and adverse impacts of climate change and to actively contribute to mitigating global warming under the Paris Climate Accord, policymakers are trying to diversify their mix of energy by fostering renewable energy development. In 2019, the SDGs report argued that more than 2.6 billion people representing one-third of the world’s population are using the dangerous and infectious cooking system. In addition, lack of electricity remains a major issue of SDGs because more than 700 million people lack access to electricity and most of them are living in sub-Saharan Africa.

Accelerated action to achieve energy transition is insistently needed especially in the heating and transport sectors. The United Nation’s report shows that the share of renewable and modern energy on total energy consumption is so much lower than the expected result before 2030. Indeed, the share of modern and renewable energy on total final energy consumption is 25% in the electricity sector, 9.2% in the heat sector, and 3,4% in the transport sector.

Consequently, active academic research on SDGs achievement could be very useful to put forward effective policy recommendations and practical actions. The conference is contributing to the world forum in this field by giving the opportunity to researchers from different backgrounds to present and discuss their SDGs achievement contributions with business leaders, policymakers, activists, and academics.

The conference topics include, but not limited to:

  • Renewable energy deployment
  • Green innovation and energy transition
  • Climate negotiations and scenarios
  • Incentive and non-linear water and electricity pricing
  • Climate risks: modelling and assessment
