Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Renewable energy is the fastest-growing energy source since the beginning of the century and the demand growth with the fast development in industrial and transportation sectors. According to the C2ES, renewables made up more than 20 percent of net U.S. energy consumed globally for heating, power, and transportation. Nearly 60 percent came from modern renewables (i.e., biomass, geothermal, solar, hydro, wind, and biofuels). In the industrial sector, biomass makes up 98 percent of the renewable energy use, with nearly 60 percent derived from biomass wood, 32 percent from biofuels, and nearly 7 percent from biomass waste. In the transportation sector, renewable fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, have increased significantly during the past decade. E85 (ethanol transportation fuel) is expected to be the fastest growing renewable energy type, growing at an average annual rate of 9.7 percent over the next 30 years. The International Conference on Innovations in Energy Engineering and Cleaner Production (IEECP’21) aims to investigate innovation applications and the last research in the areas of energy production, alternative and renewable energy supply, energy savings analysis, cleaner production, optimization of energy processes and the environmental impacts.

This year, the IEECP Annual Conference will take place virtually in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, California, USA, from 29–30 July, 2021, and is being supported by Sustainability. We encourage the authors who have presented an article at IEECP’21 and who feel that their contribution is within the scope of interest of the journal Sustainability to apply via the following link: ………………. The selected authors will be asked to submit an original and essential extension of the IEECP’21 paper, to be considered for publication no later than November 30th. More details can be found at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability/instructions#preparation. The accepted papers, after a normal process of peer review by experts in the field, will be published in Sustainability.
