The Guest Editor is inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Applied Sciences on the subject area of "Renewable Energy 2018". Renewable energy is being introduced globally. Renewable energy is a promising and/or alternative energy resource in the world. This kind of energy reduces greenhouse gas compared with fossil resources. The introduction of renewable energy is environmental friendly and comprehensive in our society. However, highly-efficient and economic usage of renewable energy is a challenging task. We need to know the wide variety of knowledge for control, power electronics, power systems, etc. This Special Issue deals with recent state-of-the-art technology for renewable energy. These technologies increase the introduction of renewable energy in the world.
This Special Issue will focus on renewable energy and its applications. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
• Wind energy;
• Solar energy;
• Tidal energy;
• Wave energy;
• Biomass energy;
• Energy storage;
• Energy transportation;
• Electrical power transmission;
• Energy distribution;
• Energy conversions;
• Control technique for renewable energy;
• Optimization technique for renewable energy;
• Reduction of CO2 emission;
• Economic issues in renewable energy;
• Hydrogen production from renewable energy.
