Handbook of Artificial Intelligence Techniques in Photovoltaic Systems: Modeling, Control, Optimization, Forecasting and Fault Diagnosis, 2022, Pages 149-182

This chapter contributes to SDG goals 7 and 11 by exploring optimization of photovoltaic systems using artificial intelligence techniques, meaning improved production and use of this essential renewable energy source.
The study assessed the perceptions of indigenous peoples on the Vietnam payments for forest environmental services (PFES) program. The majority of indigenous people were satisfied with PFES participation.
Sustainable wood-based design solutions necessarily presuppose economically, socially, and environmentally reliable sources of wood use for any future designs. However, increasingly unsustainable effects from climate extremity are now prompting the search for alternative forms of use that avoid or forestall those effects.
Rhode Island is the smallest and the second-most densely populated state in the USA. It is also one of the most severely affected states on the Eastern Seaboard due to Climate Change.
This chapter advances SDG goals 7, 11, and 13, by presenting the direct integration of solar photovoltaic energy with food production, supporting cleaner, more sustainable agriculture, with decreased impact on climate change.
The Zambezi Riparian Region (ZRR) is a lifeline and home to ∼40 million people who depend heavily on the river basin for their livelihood.
Born in 1978, Pollutec is recognized today as the reference meeting place for environment professionals. The event develops multiple SDGs, including SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action).

Reflects upon emergent challenges and opportunities of developing Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) in Europe. Combines attention to rapid implementation, context-specificity and replicability. Identifies three key themes to enable conditions for upscaling PEDs across contexts. The key themes are: framework conditions, prefiguration and emerging impact of PEDs. Combines expertise of PED-EU-NET core group, spanning PED initiatives across Europe.
This chapter focuses on the adverse effects of air pollution on the developing brain and discusses the evidence from human and animal studies suggesting that exposure to elevated air pollution during pre- and early postnatal development is associated with a number of behavioral and biochemical adverse effects.
