Abstract: “The post-pandemic recovery is an opportunity to promote the energy transition processes that were already underway and have promoted new initiatives. The EU needs alliances with other actors to capitalise on the experience in the Atlantic Space and explore the dynamics and mutual interaction. This paper begins by analysing how SDG 7 has been implemented in three regions of Atlantic Space since 2015 and the main encountered in each. Next, the regional initiatives implemented to achieve the goals of SDG7 are analysed: universal and affordable access to energy, the increase in the percentage of renewable energies in the electrical matrix and the improvement of energy efficiency. Finally, the paper highlights opportunities for interregional cooperation on energy initiatives in the Atlantic area to contribute to achieving SDG7.”
