Energy in all its forms is critical for sustainable development. The choices around energy resources, with their varying production and consumption patterns around the world, not only directly impact the climate but also affect people, communities and cities. To achieve affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for all is therefore complex. Energy-related research into materials and renewable resources will contribute to the development of new knowledge and will help to ensure universal access to modern energy services whilst improving efficiency and increasing the use of renewable sources.
