Summary

Renewable energy technologies enable us to generate sufficient power, energy, heat, and fuels from renewable energy resources. Solar energy is considered to be the most eco-friendly source of energy. This energy source exists in two natural forms: the light energy and the heat energy. Both the forms are equally essential to humans in our day to day life activities and also for other forms of life and creatures. Also Solar energy is considered to be the most predominant and sustainable type of energy. Nowadays, our civilization is experiencing lots of problems because of the alarming global warming and climatic changes. Thanks to nature for providing natural resources from which we can generate the required electricity, heat and fuel. Solar energy, wind energy, hydroelectric power, wave, heat-exchange, tidal, and some bioenergy technologies are directly or indirectly empowered by the sun. Also, the moon powers tidal and wave energy technology. Renewable energy production and its utilization enhance energy security, the human environment, the global economy, mechanical manufacturing systems, construction facilities, transportation systems, and industries, as well as aid to create new employment opportunities. Solar energy, wind energy, and biomass energy can fulfill our local energy needs while also helping to enhance environmental protection.


Renewable energy technologies including hydropower, solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, geothermal energy, and biofuels are now becoming mainstream and contributing to the planet' s and its living creatures’ safety. Renewable energy technologies are the efficient technologies used to develop all these renewable energy supplies. Hydropower is one of the most utilized renewable energy sources, with global installed capacity surpassing around 1,295GW. These technologies help us to heat and cool our living places, generate power, and potentially air without the emission of harmful greenhouse gasses or other types of pollutants. The important advantage of renewable energy is that it is conserved. Each species uses natural resources that can be replaced as we move forward. Other benefits include less pollution or carbon footprint, economic growth, and less maintenance. Renewable energy has the potential to significantly improve energy security abroad while also lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Using renewable energy can assist to minimize energy imports and reduce the usage of fossil fuels, which is the elementary source of energy in many countries. Therefore, this Special issue provides research opportunities for technologists and energy providers to explore more and more innovative strategies for efficient utilization of these available natural resources and intends to safeguard the environment from environmental degradation.


Topics of interest include, but aren't limited to:


● All renewable energy sources are included in sustainable energy.

● Solar, wind, and biomass energy can fulfill local energy needs and help to enhance environmental protection.

● Solar energy was an incredibly naturally outgoing force resource.

● Using renewable energy is significantly less costly.

● Renewable energy necessitates the employment of additional people to create the energy.

● The purpose of harnessing renewable resources was to reduce pollution and environmental harm.

● A supply of energy must be kept available for the foreseeable future.

● Renewable energy boosts human well-being and general well-being.

● Human resource development for renewable energy

● Role in minimizing the amount of external energy used and to replace non-renewable energy sources.
