The energy crisis

Enter the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)

Breaking down the problem

  1. Developed countries
    Who are currently still relying on non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels and need a faster transition to renewable.
  2. Developing countries
    Who have limited access to electricity and are forced to rely on things such as inefficient open fires to cook food.

The Downsides

Key takeaways

  • Humans use A LOT of energy which also has a big impact on the environment. Sustainable, affordable, accessible, and reliable energy is needed.
  • When making energy more sustainable and accessible we have to focus on both the developed and developing countries.
  • A new technology called photovoltaic glass which is a clear solar panel is a potential solution for sustainable energy especially as it can be implemented on large scale in city windows .
