Welcome To The World Of Energy!
We Are Going To Talk About Affordable And Clean Energy From The UN Sustainable Development Goals (number 7)!
Team: St. Paul Elementary team
Affordable and Clean Energy
People don’t always have Electricity or water. We hope that all people around the world can get what energy they need by producing affordable and clean energy. UN is trying to achieve that goal by 2030.
Facts and figures of world's energy
- One in 7 people still lacks electricity, and most of them live in rural areas of the developing world.
- Energy is the main contributor to climate change, it produces around 60 percent of greenhouse gases.
Soccket is a energy harnessing soccer ball that collects electricity for people that does not have in touch with electricity. It is made from a custom, durable, deflation-proof, and waterproof EVA foam, this soccer ball actually houses an internal mechanism that takes the kinetic energy from movement and stores it in a battery.
Sole Power is a type of shoe insert that collects electricity when you walk. This type of independent power plant collects electricity when a force is applied to the inside of the funnel. The power of exercise is stored in a rechargeable battery connected to the ankle.
The producers of the Jumping Light, introduced the idea of storing the rotary power of the installation movement as electrical energy on the handle of the jump rope. When you exercise with this type of jump rope, it provides us lights. Jumping light is still on it’s way on developing.
The Progress UN Made on Goal 7
From 2000 to 2016, the number accessed to electricity increased from 78% to 87%, with the absolute number of people living without electricity dropped to just below 1 billion.
- In the least developed countries, the people accessed to electricity more than doubled between 2000 and 2016.
- The share of renewables in final energy consumption increased modestly, from 17.3% in 2014 to 17.5% in 2015. Yet only 55% of the renewable share was derived from modern forms of renewable energy.
- Global energy intensity decreased by 2.8 per cent from 2014 to 2015, double the rate of improvement seen between 1990 and 2010.
- Globally, 85.3% of the population had access to electricity in 2014, an increase of only 0.3 percentage points since 2012. That means that 1.06 billion people, some of the farmers still function without electricity. Half of those people live in sub-Saharan Africa.
Meet The ST. PAUL ELEMENTARY TEAM
We are Geon Ho (Tony) and Ho Rim, 5th grades at St. Paul American School. We are now worried about impending energy shortage. We will do our best to reduce the use of fossil fuels and reduce carbon emission.
