Affordable and clean energy

Sustainable Development Goal 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential. In 2050, the Netherlands aim to be CO2 neutral. The Copernicus Institute assists in the road to CO2 neutrality by innovating our energy system. We help creating sustainable wind and solar energy and adjust this with resilient electricity networks. We investigate the potential of bio-energy and biofuels. We are pioneering in carbon capture and storage and of course we aim to reduce the global energy need altogether.
