Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

The world is gaining acceptable ground on expanding admittance to power and improving energy effectiveness. In any case, many individuals worldwide actually need such access, and progress on encouraging admittance to clean cooking powers and advances is excessively moderate. The pandemic has featured the requirement for solid and moderate power in well-being focuses. Likewise, a study directed in chosen agricultural nations uncovered that one-fourth of the well-being offices studied were not energized, and another quarter had unscheduled blackouts, influencing their ability to convey basic well-being administrations. Such lacks debilitate the well-being framework's reaction to the current well-being emergency.

ITU pledges itself to conduct both departmental and interdisciplinary energy research. Numerous faculty and researchers are working on renewable energy resources such as rooftop photovoltaics, small-scale wind turbines, biomass and biogas as well as storage technologies. On the other hand, we work on energy reliability and equity through socio-economic and techno-economic analysis. As an education provider, ITU plans to further extend its teaching programmes in the sustainable energy field via introducing new masters and training modules.

The accompanying examination ventures have been explicitly adjusted to Sustainable Development Goal 7 and the expect to guarantee accessibility and economical administration of water and disinfection for all. These undertakings and activities are instances of the University's commitment to the SDGs.
