Affordable and Clean Energy
"Despite progress, there are still over 700 million people globally living in the dark and 2.4 billion cooking with harmful and polluting fuels. Although the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency has improved, progress is not fast enough to achieve SDG 7. The war in Ukraine is driving up global energy prices and increasing energy insecurity in Europe. To respond to the energy crisis, some European countries plan to speed up renewables transition and increase investments in renewables and energy efficiency, while some other countries plan a resurgence of coal, putting the green transition at risk."
