SDG 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
Energy is recognized as a key enabler for sustainable development, and the transition toward clean and sustainable sources of energy is regarded as one of the greatest challenges in the upcoming decades. Space technology such as Earth observation and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) offer insights into locations of renewable energy infrastructure, forecast environmental impacts of energy use, and support timing and synchronization of energy fields, playing a critical role in developing solutions for universal access to energy, improvements in energy efficiency, and increased share of renewable energy.
