Impact Rankings 2021: affordable and clean energy

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.

This table on SDG 7 – affordable and clean energy measures universities’ research related to energy, their energy use and policies, and their commitment to promoting energy efficiency in the wider community.

The list includes 560 institutions from 77 countries/regions.
