Water Demand
Goal 6 of UN Sustainable Development Goals states “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” and target 6.1 is stated as “By 2030, universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all” (UN, 2015). Access to safe drinking water has been a priority and
Solar Windows
Solar technology has been used to produce heat and electricity. Solar PV panels are installed on the roof of a building to produce household energy. Solar technology can be applied as a solar window for energy production and conservation. Heat and energy exchange occurs through windows of a house in different ways.
Health Effects of Cadmium Presence of cadmium in drinking water is hazardous to human health. Renal, cardiovascular, respiratory and skeletal effects have been found to be induced by cadmium exposure. Cadmium can induce renal tubular dysfunction leading to renal lesion and irreversible impairment of reabsorption capacity of renal tubules. Combine concentration of Renewable Energy Support Schemes
Promotion of solar PV as a renewable energy and implementing energy policies has been a priority for more than 80 countries of the world. Renewable energy contributed 22.6% of gross electricity generation in Germany in 2012 and it is targeting to achieve 80% share of renewable energy in the total electricity
Carbon Pricing
Carbon pricing is an effective policy instrument to reduce greenhouse gas emission. Carbon pricing is based on polluter pay principle that a carbon emitter pays price to cut the emissions (Bowen, 2011; World Bank, 2015). Polluters have decision making power to cut their emissions and avoid carbon price for their production.
Goal 1: UN Sustainable Development Goals
Goal 1 of UN Sustainable Development Goals states "end poverty in all its forms everywhere". Reducing poverty worldwide has long been debated and stated in Millennium Development Goals. Millennium Development Goals was met five years early to reduce 1990 poverty levels by half in 2015 (World Bank, 2015). Target 1.1 of UN
