Exploring the SDGs on ScienceOpen:  #7 Affordable and Clean Energy

The Sustainable Development Goals serve as a road map for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. They address global issues such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice.

Our #ExploreSDGs campaign aims to promote SDG progress through scientific research, and this time we would like to highlight the research and scientific work available on the topic of sustainable and clean energy, also known as SDG7.


Join our #ExploreSDGs Twitter hashtag and let’s start discovering the impact of SDG7 research on ScienceOpen and how it is assisting in achieving this goal by 2030.

SDG7 aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.

Ensure universal access to affordable, reliable, modern  and renewable energy services

With a simple search in ScienceOpen for ‘renewable energy’, you can find thousands of results. You can filter publications by date, the number of citations, relevance, altmetric score, or simply be redirected to collections that contain research on these topics using our search functions. We’d like to highlight a few collections and their related publications below:

IET Power Engineering

The IET Power Engineering collection includes open access articles from the IET’s power and energy journals that cover topics in power and energy engineering. IET’s mission is to inspire, inform, and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world by sharing knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve important challenges.

Let’s discover IET’s work towards achieving SDG7 by highlighting some research articles, books, and book chapters records:

African Journal of Engineering & Technology

The African Journal of Engineering & Technology (AJET) is an open-access, peer-reviewed, and multidisciplinary journal that aims to serve as a platform for researchers, professionals, and policy-makers from a variety of backgrounds to discuss and disseminate applied research in engineering and technology that addresses Africa’s sustainable development.

AJET, published by the Sudanese Researchers Foundation, aims to be a platform for research highlighting pathways for Africa’s development in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda2030.

Highlighted Titles:

AJET is also the first journal to be hosted within ScienceOpen and to use the ScienceOpen technology for blinded peer review. We are proud to support AJET in its mission to promote more sustainable and clean energy in Africa in the future.

De Gruyter Materials Science: Energy

De Gruyter has been publishing high-quality scholarship for over 270 years. The expanding field of materials sciences is a rapidly expanding subject area in the De Gruyter portfolio, distinguished by new topics and authors. Energy has received special attention, and DeGruyter’s Energy collection on ScienceOpen includes graduate-level textbooks, a special STEM series for career beginners, traditional monographs, and a journal collection.

The De Gruyter Materials Science: Energy collection offers a lot of cutting-edge research publications, book titles, and scientific reports on energy and topics such as affordable, and modern energy systems.

Improve energy efficiency and enhance cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research

SDG7 aims to double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030, improve international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research and technology, encourage investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology, expand infrastructure and upgrade technology in developing countries to provide modern and sustainable energy services to all.

The Journal of Green Building

Journal of Green Building | BuildingGreen

The Journal of Green Building is an excellent example of the interdisciplinary approach that we must take in order to live in a more sustainable future and achieve Agenda2030 goals faster. The Journal of Green Building’s mission is to present the most recent peer-reviewed research in green building design, construction, engineering, and technological innovation, with the goal of living in more sustainable cities in the future.

Many titles in this journal provide insights into carbon-neutral architecture and urban planning, energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy in cities and buildings, and other topics falling und the SDG7 targets.

Let’s discover some titles:

Exploring SDG7 publications

AsiaChem, the official magazine of the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS), provides access to a wide range of articles on cutting-edge science advancements, history, and anything that would interest a broad readership in the chemical sciences, including topics on sustainability, energy efficiency, and energy system improvement.

De Gruyter Materials: Nanotechnology provides insights into recent developments in the field of nanoscience and its contributions to a more sustainable future, more efficient energy distribution systems, and the development of materials that would aid in clean and sustainable production of energy.

AIAA Space Collection presents recent journal articles published in Aerospace Research Central (ARC) related to topics involving space transportation, discovery, logistics, and energy efficiency in aeronautics.

EPJ Photovoltaics by EDP Sciences publishes original, peer-reviewed papers in photovoltaic solar energy conversion, high-efficiency cells: materials for optical trapping, etc, with a focus on renewable energy.

The Renewable Energy Super Collection is a researcher collection curated by Christoph von Friedeburg, which contains collections each bringing together research addressing the key challenges of a specific form of renewable energy, and their grid integration. This is an excellent example of how researchers can participate in and benefit from ScienceOpen by creating their own topical collection on a topic of their choosing. Join the conversation about the SDGs and contribute to the achievement of Agenda2030 goals by showcasing relevant research.

This super collection includes:

UCL Press’ collection on SDG7

Finally, UCL Press’ collection on SDG7 topics brings together the most recent developments and research from UCL in the field of Affordable and Clean Energy.

UCL is taking the lead in responding to the challenges outlined in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through world-class research and teaching, as well as the way it operates as an institution.

Out of 3,271 publications, we are highlighting just a few below.
