Samuel M. Gorton, Chapter 41 - Integrated agroecological technology networks for food, bioenergy, and biomaterial production, Editor(s): Anju Dahiya, Bioenergy (Second Edition), Academic Press, 2020, Pages 767-788, ISBN 9780128154977, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-815497-7.00041-5.

This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 7 and 11 by discussing how we can create integrated ecological technologies that transform natural resources into anthropocentric goods and services, while restoring the land and reducing pollution by returning beneficial materials or energy to the ecosystem.
Presents an analysis of the path towards a clean energy transition in rural areas.
Solar photovoltaics (PV) is an energy technology that is already contributing substantially to CO2 emissions mitigation. Here, the authors analyse the factors that lie behind the huge cost reductions of solar PV and identify innovations in the pipeline that could contribute to maintaining a high learning rate. Moreover, this work shows how widespread Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) - which are used to model decarbonization pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement – need to evolve to better reflect the role of solar PV in future low-carbon energy scenarios. This closely relates to SDG 7 and 13.
Recycled paper hardboards were upcycled into CF-coated separators for Li-S batteries via a cost-effective method. The readily accessible, renewable materials used in this study provide the large potential for the commercialization of low-cost, eco-friendly Li-S batteries.
Fatty alcohols (FAs) have been widely studied as typical phase-change materials for their high latent heat, low undercooling, non-toxicity, and low cost in thermal energy storage applications. The thermal properties, especially the heat capacity, play a vital role in designing-related energy storage techniques. However, there are few studies on the thermal properties of FAs systematically investigated in a wide temperature region, which greatly limit their application in thermal energy storage field. In this study, the thermal properties of even-numbered FAs (C12H25OH-C18H37OH), such as thermal stability, thermal conductivity, phase transition temperature, and enthalpy have been systematically investigated using a combination of various thermal analysis and calorimetry methods, contributing to SDGs 7 and 9.
Bibliometric analysis on the research progress of micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) energy harvesters as a source of alternative energy, particularly for electronic equipment.
Assesses the status of energy consumption and the factors affecting biogas technology adoption among rural households in northwestern Ethiopia.
Circular bioeconomy has a big role to play in goals towards cleaner energy and more sustainable industrial practices. In addition, the carbon capture opportunities it offers holds promise for supporting climate goals. This book chapter advances SDGs 7, 9 and 13.

Distributed Energy Resources in Local Integrated Energy Systems, Optimal Operation and Planning, 2021, Pages 1-29

This book chapter advances SDG 7 by surveying literature concerning the use of distributed energy resources in the context of local energy systems, including the deployment of local solutions to generate, store, and manage energy at small scale and micro-scale; grid-related aspects and solutions for optimal grid operation; and finally emergent aspects referring to local energy systems, markets and energy communities, which are gaining relevance in the present and future context of energy transition.

Biomass, Biofuels, Biochemicals, Circular Bioeconomy - Current Status and Future Outlook, 2021, Pages 413-443

This book chapter advances SDG 7 by showing the scope of the application of MET as a sustainable technology to sequester atmospheric CO2 and simultaneously produce value-added by-products at an efficient engineering level and discusses the bottlenecks associated with these technologies.
