Review of the Multi-Tier Framework for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) of the United Nations
This project provides a review of the Multi-Tier Framework (MTF) which is currently used for monitoring the progress towards the SDG7 targets. The present MTF focuses mainly on the requirements of private households. Within this project, a proposal for extending the MTF is developed, which considers the significant role of productive uses of electricity in developing and emerging economies. By providing a systematic analysis of the electricity access requirements of various types of commercial and industrial applications, the results aim to support the implementation of sustainable energy strategies, i.e. the development of energy supply solutions which are sustainable and in line with people’s needs.
