Renewable Energy Systems

Modelling, Optimization and Control, Advances in Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos (ANDC), 2021, Pages 687-705

This book chapter addresses SDG 7 by explaining how a stand-alone solar PV/wind hybrid system works including necessary controlling and modeling.
The review examined the potential of renewable and non-renewable energy resources and the current state of exploitation in Kenya.
Heating and cooling in buildings account for nearly 20% of energy use globally.
Many inhabited Greek/Mediterranean islands are unsustainable without mainland support due to lack of access to clean water and energy. This case study establishes the feasibility of sustainable green energy solutions for these settlements.

Electrification, Accelerating the Energy Transition, 2021, Pages 3-24

This book chapter advances SDG 7 by introducing electrification as a megatrend directly shaping not only the energy system but also society, global development, and energy politics internationally. In particular, it highlights the potential for electrification as a master solution for an accelerated transition to climate neutrality
This chapter advances SDGs 6 & 7 by presenting membrane technologies that can be used to purify wastewater and produce biomass for energy.
This chapter advances SDGs 6 & 7 by critically examining the recent developments, opportunities, market possibilities, and barriers in resource recovery in wastewater treatment plants.
This chapter advances SDGs 6 & 7 by discussing how to convert gelatinous industry wastewater into useful chemicals and fuels.
This chapter advances SDG 7, 11, and 13 by presenting the different ways valorizing agricultural residues for energy production, as a sustainable alternative to carbon emitting fossil fuels, while simultaneously reducing agricultural waste products.
To limit global warming to well-below 2°C (WB2C), fossil fuels must be replaced by low-carbon energy sources. Support for this transition is often dampened by the impact on fossil fuel jobs.
