The diminishing supply of conventional energy reserves and the growing environmental concerns have made renewable energy an attractive source for the future. Thus this Special Issue would also address the current and future issues of Renewable Energy in agricultural sectors. We wish to invite researchers in the area of Renewable Energy for Agriculture to submit their contribution to our Special Issue of Renewable Energy for Agricultural sectors. We are interested in articles related to renewable energy resources (solar, wind, biomass, hydraulic, algae, water, hydrogen), bioenergy from agriculture, biomass production and energy recovery in agriculture. Energy is the main input of the agricultural industry and technology.
