Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Renewable energy forms one of the pillars for delivering a global sustainable environment and is essential for achieving climate change targets. The renewable energy industry has matured, with huge investments globally. Global new investment in renewable energy (excluding large hydro-electric projects) was around US$241.6 billion in 2016, with over 138.5 GW of added renewable power capacity worldwide. This capacity is equivalent to 55% of all the generating capacity and was approximately double that of fossil fuel generation in 2016. The International Conference on Renewable Energy series addresses research and development in renewable energy technologies including energy efficiency. It is an annual meeting planned to be held in a different country each time, initially within Europe, with Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America being highlighted as target regions for the conference.

The ICREN2019 will focus on international participation including experienced and young researchers with an interest in renewable energy studies. The conference will be held at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France providing an unsurpassed venue to nurture debate in this globally important area.
