This study advances SDGs 7, 9 and 12 by evaluating the environmental sustainability of biomass utilisation for small-scale power generation in rural communities, with a focus on the Southeast Asian context. Rice and coconut residues are considered for direct combustion and gasification, and livestock manure for anaerobic digestion. The results of this study are expected to support the development of sustainable bioenergy in off-grid rural communities as well as those that aim for greater energy independence.
Advancing SDGs 7 and 13, this article outlines why divesting from fossil fuels makes sense environmentally and financially.
This article addressses goals 7, 12 and 13 showing the opportunity that implementation of zero emission ferry lines offers in the framework of 100% RES smart island energy systems and demonstrates their ability to supply the fuel for zero emission ferry lines.

Introduction to Industrial Energy Efficiency, Energy Auditing, Energy Management, and Policy Issues, 2020, Pages 215-226

This chapter advances SDG 7, 11 and 12 by addressing energy efficiency of heating systems, cooling systems, and hot water systems, examining measures to reduce energy use in these systems.

Encyclopedia of Renewable and Sustainable Materials: Nanomaterial for CO2 Sequestration, Volume 3, 2020

This book chapter advances SDGs 7, 13, and 12 by describing promising nanomaterials for the capture of CO2 emissions. Since it will take time for the world to rely solely on renewables, nanomaterials for carbon capture can help protect the atmosphere from harmful greenhouse gases in the interim.

Supervised Machine Learning in Wind Forecasting and Ramp Event Prediction, Wind Energy Engineering, 2020, Pages 75-99

This book chapter addresses SDG 7 by explaining wind forecasting and how hybrid models based on machine learning is improving accuracy.
Global and regional trends indicate that energy demand will soon be covered by a widespread deployment of renewable energy sources. However, the weather and climate driven energy sources are characterized by a significant spatial and temporal variability. How can we use these sources together to mitigate this?

Cold Fusion: Advances in Condensed Matter Nuclear Science, Volume , 14 January 2020

This book chapter advances SDG 7 and 11 by presenting techniques for producing clean and stable nuclear energy.

Sustainable Materials and Technologies, Volume 25, 2020, e00152, ISSN 2214-9937

Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this study shows that cathode-healing™ restores structure and functionality to well-used lithium cobalt oxide. The paper follows recycling activities from the collection of battery packs, through to extraction of electrolyte with carbon dioxide, industrial shredding, electrode harvesting, froth flotation, cathode-healing™ and finally, building new cells with recycled cathode and anode. The final products demonstrated useful capability in the first full cells made from direct recycled cathodes and anodes from an industrial source.
This book chapter addresses goals 7, 9, and 13 by reviewing the prospects and constraints for bioenergy development in Africa to ensure sustainable bioenergy production in the future.
