    that everyone will have access to energy, and that the energy will be affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern. This is a very hefty goal to achieve, only made harder by the goal’s five targets. Targets are supposed to be measureable indicators of whether or not the goal can be achieved. I believe that targets 7.1 and 7.2 are not truly measureable until certain aspects of the target have been defined. Target 7.1 aims to ensure universal access to affordable energy. The reason that this cannot be

    Energy efficiency is a key step in reducing our impact on global climate change and creating a sustainable energy future. Electricity production is the number one source of greenhouse gases and the leading cause of industrial air pollution in the United States.

    1114 Words  | 5 Pages

    After reviewing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal on “Affordable and Clean Energy” (United Nations), I have observed that the majority of the targets listed are truly not measurable. By incorporating the words “increase” and “double”, the targets 7.2 and 7.3 appear to be the only two targets which one can use a clear standard unit of comparison. The target 7.1 uses the concept “universal access” as its amount to achieve by 2030. Although, an amount can be given of the number of people who do
