Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues, 

Global warming and resources scarcity have been still the main issues that have been addressed nowadays in both, economical and scientific conferences, and meetings. Therefore, industrial activities and engineering communities start a new era of energy-efficient uses. Conventional energy sources such as coal and natural gas are huge contributors to climate change. Reliance on conventional energy sources exposes consumers to price fluctuations and harms our health and environment. The world has witnessed a significant shift towards the use of renewable energy resources over the past couple of decades due to the reason of continuous depletion of fossil fuels. Renewable energy is the way to reliable and clean power. It gives significant advantages for the climate, health, and economy. Wind and solar energy need no water to operate and hence do not pollute water. In contrast, conventional sources can have a substantial impact on water resources. Energy efficiency is also essential to combat climate change. It is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to combat climate change. 

We cordially invite you to submit your original contributions to this Special Issue, entitled: “Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy”. The present Special Issue aims to collect innovative solutions and experimental research supported by appropriate modeling and design, but also state-of-the-art studies, in the following topics: 

  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable power generation systems, e.g., wind, solar, and wave
  • Next generation renewable energy technologies
  • Renewable energy for sustainable development
  • Distributed energy systems and microgrids
  • Bioenergy and Biomass
  • Energy from waste
  • Hydrogen and fuel cells
  • Energy storage techniques, e.g., batteries, supercapacitor
  • Real-time control and optimization of integrated renewable energy systems
  • Energy storage processes modelling and optimization
  • Renewable energy modelling
  • Analysis, design, and optimization methods for integrated energy systems
  • New concepts in renewable energy systems, e.g., energy route, energy hub, and energy internet, and energy big data
