Renewable resources will play a crucial role on the path towards meeting the energy demands of a growing global population and the economic needs of countries if these goals are to be achieved in a climate-friendly environment. Deployment of increasingly-renewable energy options continue to expand with electricity generation from renewable energy systems, currently accounting for half of the additional global energy generation. This is enhanced by declining costs and by dedicated policy initiatives and subsidies. Despite these, present and future advancements in renewable energies present uncertainties in terms of technical, policy and sustainability. Although there is minor usage of biomass and wastes in energy production, they have been gradually stating their power generating capacity, which has been constantly rising in the last decades. From the exposed, biomass and wastes can be thought as advantageous fuels towards their energy generating capacity allied to the almost negligible ecological footprint, which makes their combination an environmental breakthrough. This Special Issue is devoted to articles related to renewable resources, including, but not limited to, biomass, wastes, biogas and hydrogen. We are also seeking papers related to the environmental impacts of renewable resources through life cycle analyses, and potential future resources.Dr. Eliseu Monteiro
