Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During recent decades, the worldwide objective of sustainability has become increasingly urgent, mainly due to climate change, resource scarcity, and environmental degradation. Among the critical areas under study, the energy sector stands out as a significant contributor to these challenges. However, it can also be a central solution to achieve sustainability goals. In fact, sustainable energy systems offer a pathway towards mitigating climate change, reducing dependence on finite non-renewable resources, and enhancing socio-economic development.

This Special Issue aims to involve researchers, experts, and policymakers to disseminate their latest research findings, innovative solutions, and best practices related to sustainable energy systems and applications. By including contributions from several fields of study and perspectives, an important advance in understanding the difficult challenges, as well as the outstanding opportunities, towards sustainable energy systems will be made. Indeed, this Special Issue aims to promote interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration towards advancing knowledge and finding solutions to promote sustainable energy systems and applications.

Research in this area is essential to fulfilling the sustainable development goals for securing a successful and resilient future for subsequent generations. The scientific background surrounding sustainable energy systems involves several disciplines. Consequently, in this Special Issue, research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Renewable energy technologies, hybrid systems, and their integration;
  • Energy efficiency;
  • Energy access and equity;
  • Sustainable urban energy planning;
  • Policy, governance, and regulatory frameworks;
  • Interdisciplinary perspectives on energy sustainability.

Original research articles and reviews are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
