Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Clean renewable energies, although available in nature for free, are characterized by some limitations such as high spatial dilution, capital intensity, etc. To overcome these types of limitations and achieve a real impact, further significant research developments are required. Moreover, adequate business approaches also need to be proposed to better reflect the specific techno-economics of various renewable energy sources and enable their deployment in current practice. All these developments should relevantly target technologies, policy, economics, social aspects and environmental issues associated with renewable energy sources. Therefore, this Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers to address challenges associated with research and business in renewable energy sources. The Special Issue will attract attention of researchers, engineers, economists, manufacturers, NGOs, associations, societies and policymakers to help them keep abreast of new developments and to apply the most effective solutions to current practices. It seeks research reports and innovative solutions that could contribute to the further development of the utilization of renewable energy sources. In addition, submissions of review papers that systematically evaluate advances in renewable energy sources with an emphasis on technological excellence and realistic commercial potential are also invited. Submissions from all internationally leading authors as well as from participants at the “Renewable Energy Sources—Research and Business” conference are warmly invited.
