Engineering: Sustainable Energy Trends in the Developing Economies

Sustainability, a term that has achieved a particular focus in recent years in the energy sector’s policymaking. Policies and technologies that are essential to implement sustainable energy production are well established, predominantly in the developed world but less so in developing nations. This is because developing world is still in a situation where access to basic energy is yet to reach to its total population. Although this may be true, sustainable development (including social, economic, and environmental dimensions) in the developing economies is equally important as it is in the developed world towards a global low-carbon and sustainable future. Nevertheless, sustainability issues, particularly sustainable energy in the developing economies received less attention in the literature. Thus, this Topical Collection will consider these issues for the developing economies, which includes the following topics but not limited to: Sustainable electricity generation; Sustainability assessment of electricity generation systems; Sustainable energy production; Energy and sustainable development; Sustainable energy policy; Access to sustainable energy; Energy conservation and sustainability; Energy efficiency and sustainability; Demand-side management and sustainability; Prosumerism and sustainability.
