Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 9th Asia-Pacific Forum on Renewable Energy (AFORE 2019) aims to investigate innovations and recent studies in the areas of new and renewable energy.

AFORE 2019 is an annual event in which renewable energy specialists are provided with the opportunity, with regard to renewable energy policy, technology, education, research, marketing, and business, to exchange ideas, present work, establish networks, and develop a new vision for the future of renewable energy in the Asia-Pacific region.

The success of past AFORE conferences has now established it as a regional forum for presenting renewable energy areas and providing opportunities for information sharing, interaction between researchers and industries, network building, and research/technical collaboration.

This year, the conference will be held on 13–16 November 2019 at the Maison Glad Hotel, Jeju, Republic of Korea. This Special Issue welcomes full-length manuscript submissions on new and renewable energy applications from presenters and speakers at AFORE 2019.

We would like to strongly encourage authors who will present an article at AFORE 2019 to submit a full-length manuscript through the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/energies. Papers that are accepted after a process of peer-review by experts in the field of new and renewable energy will be published in the journal Energies.
