This Special Issue addresses the daunting challenges that face today’s world, such as limited access to energy resources and clean water. The available conventional energy resources might suffice for living requirements in some part of the world. However, the extensive use of such resources can produce detrimental pollutants in the ecosystem. Similar to the limited energy issue, water scarcity is another concerning matter that has polarized the attention of researchers worldwide.
This issue is amid to serve as a platform for researchers from different disciplines to contribute innovative solutions to the abovementioned challenges. Paucity of energy and water resources is a broad topic. Thus, to objectively tackle the problems in this issue, the focus of the issue will be directed towards finding alternative, environmentally friendly ways of making these resources more accessible. The areas that will be targeted are alternative energy resources for agricultural applications, green and energy efficient techniques of water treatment, and the common topics between these two themes.
