Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Movement toward a sustainable future is imminent. Energy is a key resource that is needed for many daily operations, yet the energy that we are currently consuming is not sustainable, as it is depleting and pollutes the environment. Many green and sustainable concepts have previously been discovered to combat this issue, from the micro to macro level, covering energy studies from processes to inter-processes, urban industrial symbiosis, and on a larger scale, national energy planning. This Special Issue aims to cover state-of-the-art green energy advancement as well as futuristic and sustainable concepts, such as, but not limited to:

  • Smart microgrid development with advanced artificial intelligence for demand-side energy management and planning;
  • The Net Zero Emission concept for use in reducing and neutralising carbon emission from energy sectors;
  • Water Waste and Energy Nexus or Circular Economy for the integration and minimization of resources;
  • Energy efficiency in industrial practices, including thermal energy optimization;
  • Advancement in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, bio-energy, geothermal, hydro, and many more;
  • The progress and development of hydrogen economy from production, storage, distribution, and utilization;
  • Techno-economy analysis, Life Cycle Assessment, Environment Impact Assessment on energy-related activities;
  • Urban sustainability and development toward Low Carbon energy consumption and utilization, including Green Buildings and Green Transportation;
  • Energy resource optimization and power system design.
