Renewable and Sustainable Energy Transition, Volume 1, 2021,100001,

Rapid climate action is urgently necessary, but it poses risks to justice. Major justice risks relate to fossil fuel phase-out, increased resource use, distribution of economic impacts, human needs. To mitigate against this we need to be inclusive of diverse voices and able to deal with radical ideas. This paper outlines a way we can do this.

Sustainability of Life Cycle Management for Nuclear Cementation-Based Technologies, Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy, 2021, Pages 181-232

This book chapter advances SDG 7 and 11 by analysing the sustainability of cementitious structures, systems, and components (SSC’s), with a particular focus on the impact of long-term environmental stressors, and how to predict and model degradation damage.

Solar Hybrid Systems, Design and Application, 2021, Pages 47-68

This book chapter addresses SDG 7 by explaining why solar hybrid systems are beneficial and how they are used.
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.
