Sustainable Development Goal 7

Friday 11am Seminar Presentation Week 9 Renewable energy within a developing country (the Ukraine) and a developed nation (Australia)

Presentation Pearls

WEBINAR: UN Sustainable Development Goal #7 What is it and how can we achieve it. United Nations SDG7 Explained! Affordable and clean energy. Renewable energy. Clean renewable electrical energy generation systems are becoming increasingly accessible to the average homeowner either installed at home and connected to the grid or purchased as GreenPower.

Renewable energy

Renewable energy can also be used for home heating and cooling, hot water and even cooking. Electricity accounts for about 53% of the energy used in Australian households but creates around 87% of the greenhouse gas emissions (DEWHA 2008). Most is generated by burning non-renewable fossil fuels: coal, oil, natural gas and liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Renewable power systems use renewable energy sources to produce electricity with very low greenhouse gas emissions. These sources, such as the sun, wind and water, are replenished naturally but are not available continuously.

Equipment costs for renewable energy systems are generally declining These energy systems usually operate with low running costs but can be expensive to install, although equipment costs are generally declining. Sustainable Development Goals: a win-win for Australia. On September 25 world leaders will meet in New York to formalise the new Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainable Development Goals: a win-win for Australia

These 17 goals will guide efforts to reduce poverty and increase well-being, without destroying the Earth. The Conversation is looking at how we got here, and how far we have to go. Unlike the Millennium Development Goals (or MDGs) that applied only to developing countries, the Sustainable Development Goals (or SDGs) will apply to all countries, including Australia.

Energy. Sustainable Development Goal 7 - Post 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda. Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today.

Sustainable Development Goal 7 - Post 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, universal access to energy is essential. Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is leading the Sustainable Energy for All initiative (SE4All) to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources. One in five people still lacks access to modern electricityNearly 3 billion people rely on wood, coal, charcoal or animal waste for cooking and heatingEnergy is the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 60 per cent of total global greenhouse gas emissionsReducing the carbon intensity of energy is a key objective in long-term climate goals. U.N Sustainable Development Goals — Five Talents UK. The inclusion of a point relating to gender equality in the SDGs has been widely welcomed by the development community.

U.N Sustainable Development Goals — Five Talents UK

By 2030, the UN hopes to have eliminated all discrimination, violence, and all 'harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilations'. The vast majority of our clients in Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya (and, indeed, internationally, across all of the Five Talents projects) are female. Once a woman earns an income, her decision-making power at home and in the wider community increases. This means she is no longer forced to depend on her husband and her children are more likely to go to school and to receive nutritious and regular meals. In some areas where Five Talents works there are particular issues facing women such as female genital mutilation or gender-based violence. Australia. Australia jailed Indigenous people at a disproportionate rate to non-Indigenous people; some children were detained with adults.


Australia continued its hard-line policies towards asylum-seekers, including pushing back boats, refoulement, and mandatory and indefinite detention, as well as offshore processing on Nauru and in Papua New Guinea. Those assessed as refugees on Nauru were denied the right to settle in Australia and offered temporary visas or residency in Cambodia. Papua New Guinea had yet to finalize a temporary visa, to be granted to those recognized as refugees, leaving many people in a legal limbo unable to leave Manus Island. Ukraine. The year began with intense fighting in the east of the country between separatist pro-Russian and Ukrainian forces and ended with sporadic fire interrupting a precarious ceasefire.


Impunity prevailed for war crimes committed by both sides. Little progress was made in investigating violations and abuses related to the 2013-2014 pro-European demonstrations in the capital Kyiv (“EuroMaydan”) and in bringing perpetrators to justice. The adoption of a law creating a State Investigation Bureau was a welcome step towards creating an effective mechanism for investigating abuses by law enforcement officials. Independent and critical media and activists were unable to operate freely in the self-styled People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as well as in Crimea. In government-controlled areas, media outlets and individuals perceived to express pro-Russian or pro-separatist views faced harassment.

UN photo Between 1990 and 2010, the number of people with access to electricity has increased by 1.7 billion, and as the global population continues to rise so will the demand for cheap energy. A global economy reliant on fossil fuels and the increase of greenhouse gas emissions is creating drastic changes to our climate system. This is having a visible impact on every continent. Renewable energy - Clean Energy Finance Corporation. The transformation of Australia's energy sector will require around $100 billion in investment in the renewables sector over the period to 2050.

Renewable energy - Clean Energy Finance Corporation

The CEFC Act provides for a minimum of 50 per cent of the CEFC portfolio to be invested in renewable energy technologies, related enabling technologies and hybrid technologies that integrate renewable energy technologies by 1 July 2018. In addition to utility scale investments in renewables, the CEFC has developed financing which is assisting Australian businesses to more readily access finance for renewables projects.

The CEFC's role in overcoming market impediments is to help accelerate action towards the transformation to a low carbon economy, minimise its ultimate cost and create positive adjustment for the economy, including through new forms of clean technology business, new jobs, development of new or expansion of existing businesses and development of new technological know-how. GreenPower. Other Renewable Energy Resources. Hydro Energy Hydropower is the most advanced and mature renewable energy technology and provides some level of electricity generation in more than 160 countries worldwide. Solar Energy The Australian continent has the highest solar radiation per square metre of any continent and consequently some of the best solar energy resource in the world.

Ocean Energy There are two broad types of ocean energy - mechanical energy from the tides and waves, and thermal energy from the sun’s heat. Wind Energy Wind is a vast potential source of renewable energy and is generated by converting wind currents into other forms of energy using wind turbines. Clean Energy Council - Clean Energy Australia Report. The Clean Energy Australia Report 2015 is a comprehensive overview of Australia's renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors, and includes key figures and statistics on the energy market from the past year.

The Clean Energy Australia Report 2015 includes a comprehensive round-up of renewable energy projects, investment, employment and electricity generation. It is the only analysis that includes the National Electricity Market, the Western Australian electricity grid and other major regional grids across the country in areas such as the Northern Territory. The main findings from the report are as follows: Renewable energy provided 14.6 per cent of Australia’s electricity in 2015, enough to provide power for the equivalent of approximately 6.7 million average homes. This was up on the 13.5 per cent of electricity delivered by renewables the year before. Energy - United Nations Sustainable Development.

Business Published on August 3rd, 2016 | by Glenn Meyers August 3rd, 2016 by Glenn Meyers. Planet Ark News - Green With Energy. Date: 04-Dec-14 Author: Claire Grant Most Australians would agree that they could be doing more to reduce their carbon footprint.

At a time when many of the large energy companies oppose the renewable energy target, consumers in Victoria and NSW have the power to control their energy source, switch to a greener energy provider and even save money. Australians are more discerning than ever when it comes to making greener choices and the demand for alternative clean energy sources is projected to increase by 50 per cent by 2020[1].

Yet according to the Clean Energy Australia report, renewable energy was only 14.76 per cent of the annual electricity generation, with the remaining 85.24 per cent generated by fossil fuels[2]. Planet Ark's Sean O'Malley, who has been a customer with Powershop, Australia's greenest energy company, since April 2013 is an advocate for making the switch.

The Sustainable Development Goals are a UN Initiative. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially known as Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, are an intergovernmental set of aspiration Goals with 169 targets.Spearheaded by the United Nations, The Goals are contained in paragraph 54 United Nations Resolution A/RES/70/1 of 25 September 2015.[1] The Resolution is a broader intergovernmental agreement that, while acting as the Post 2015 Development Agenda (successor to the Millennium Development Goals), builds on the Principles agreed upon under Resolution A/RES/66/288, popularly known as The Future We Want.[2] On 19 July 2014, the UN General Assembly's Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) forwarded a proposal for the SDGs to the Assembly.

The proposal contained 17 goals with 169 targets covering a broad range of sustainable development issues. Background[edit] The MDGs were supposed to be achieved by 2015.
