Development of renewable energy (RE) systems provides a practical solution to achieve a transition towards a low-carbon society. By replacing fossil fuel-based technologies and enabling access to clean energy through decentralised energy systems, RE can generate multiple synergies with achieving the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDG), particularly the social dimension of the SDGs. Integrated policy-making across sectors and using economic incentives, such as removing energy subsidies and feed-in-tariff system, are needed to strengthen the synergies and reduce the trade-offs.
