Special Issue Information
Today, the sustainable supply of energy resources is seen, worldwide, as the key determinant of both economic and social development. “Sustainability”, in this particular context, combines two important notions – “stability” [of energy supply] and its friendliness to the natural environment. Societies across the globe are attempting to find, develop, and implement energy solutions that are eco-friendly, economically feasible, and socially tolerable. This has been a challenging task for both policy-makers and researchers. Innovations and R&D are an integral part of this process, which is covering a wide array of research directions: sustainability of logistics and supply; development of new, more efficient technical solutions; adjustment of the already functioning energy systems to the changing political, economic and environmental context; public awareness changes and overall social context as applied to sustainable energy.
In this specific research context, the Special Issue “Sustainable Energy and Society” is collecting texts that cover the following topics: government regulation of changes in energy systems; social and socio-cultural changes due to changes in the national energy systems; growing prosumer attitudes to energy supply and energy use; description of implemented local “green” initiatives; SME interests and participation in the alternative energy development; energy equality and energy justice across the globe and in the context of developing nations especially.
