About This Topic

Currently, a widespread international debate among national bodies and international congregations has been emerged regarding the joint approaches of low carbon energy technologies and policies that could support a sustainable energy development. To this end, among the most contentious issues of high strategic and planning priority are that of global development through greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) control while achieving a global average temperature rise to 1.5 °C above the pre-industrial level, the global climate change, the energy poverty and autonomy, the substitution of fossil fuels by a plethora of renewable energy sources (RES) especially towards remote and localized energy production and the electrification by replacing fossil fuels that contribute almost two thirds of global electricity generation globally. In such a way there should be realistic and feasible streamlining efforts to support underprivileged local communities in achieving sustainable energy development.

This special issue aims to shape a roadmap of regional, national and international strategies for sustainable energy transition and sustainable energy development, covering all multi-parametric domains that include low carbon energy proposals, applications, models and case studies. You are warmly welcome to submit your research works covering these subjects.
