Energy

Presents a tool for energy decision makers that strives to be a comprehensive, global index that tracks the performance of energy systems at the country level development priorities in Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru
There is growing interest in climate friendly neighbourhood research. The most covered topic of reviewed studies was the energy system. In total, 35 different terminologies were used for climate friendly neighbourhoods. There is a lack of clear definitions, both in scientific literature and international research projects.
This study aimed to utilize the natural wind to create optimal natural ventilation to achieve thermal comfort of the indoor environment through the best layout and placement of residential blocks, creating proper distance between blocks and orienting blocks properly inside a residential complex site in a summery humid climate.

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.
This paper explains how much energy is required and consumed during the solar drying of green chilli, and describes the drying kinetics of green-chilli. The results derived and the solar dryer developed are useful to farmers as the payback period is substantially reduced compared to natural convection setups.
The review examined the potential of renewable and non-renewable energy resources and the current state of exploitation in Kenya.
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 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.
Elsevier and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) are pleased to announce the third biennial Renewable Transformation Challenge. If you have an innovative proposal which contributes to the goal of transitioning to 100% renewable energy, submit your application for a chance to win €20,000.
