SDG 7.3 - Energy efficiency
Sustainable Development Goal 7.3 target calls for global progress on energy efficiency by doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency globally by 2030.
How SDG 7.3 is measured
Energy intensity, generically defined as the amount of energy used to produce a given output or service, is used as the indicator to track progress on SDG 7.3. The SDG 7.3.1 indicator is specifically measured in terms of primary energy and GDP, which is a proxy indicator to track country or global level progress.
Sector energy efficiency indicators where the output or service is more identifiable, such as tracking progress for energy per floor area of a building or energy per passenger kilometre for road travel, can enable improved decision making.
