Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the last decade, there has been a growing global focus on transitioning towards a smart and sustainable energy infrastructure to address the challenges posed by climate change and increasing energy demands. In the pursuit of a greener future, innovative technologies and solutions are crucial to enable efficient energy utilization and reduce environmental impact.

This Special Issue aims to explore the advancements and potential of green platform innovations in achieving a smart and sustainable energy infrastructure. The primary objective of this Special Issue is to bring together cutting-edge research and case studies that shed light on the integration of smart technologies within the realm of sustainable energy platforms. It also seeks to clarify the most recent developments, prospects, and difficulties involved with developing energy systems and consumptions that are efficient and considerate of the environment through a multidisciplinary approach.

Contributors are invited to submit original research articles, critical review papers, and case studies that delve into various aspects of smart and sustainable energy infrastructure. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Smart and green technologies and their role in promoting sustainable energy consumption;
  • Renewable energy integration and management in smart green platforms;
  • Energy storage innovations and their impact on grid stability and efficiency;
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in optimizing green energy systems;
  • Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for smart energy monitoring and control;
  • Energy-efficient building designs and smart infrastructure for sustainable cities;
  • Green transportation and its role in reducing carbon emissions;
  • Policy frameworks and regulatory approaches to support the development of smart and sustainable energy infrastructure;
  • Case studies of successful green platform implementations and their lessons learned;
  • Eco-friendly energy solutions for remote and off-grid areas.

By fostering collaboration among researchers, industry experts, and policymakers, this Special Issue facilitates the progress towards a more sustainable future. Through the dissemination of novel ideas and best practices, it endeavours to inspire further innovations and initiatives that pave the way for a greener, smarter, and more sustainable energy infrastructure.
