Production, Storage and Valorisation of Hhydrogen Energy (PSVHE)

Energy accessed through Hydrogen can be considered as a great and readily available source with a great efficiency with no emissions when used in fuel cells or in internal combustion engines to generate power, no green house effect, non-toxic, can be produced from renewable resources, etc. Various applications based on different aspects of energy through Hydrogen such as production, valorization and storage are the main objectives.

 Micro-Grids Implementation And Optimization (MGIO)

Authors addressing advancement in designing, optimizing and implementing microgrids using different renewable energy sources with storage subsystem are encouraged to submit their original papers to Microgrids Implementation and Optimization special issue. This special issue should inspire authors to address designing micro-grids to achieve net zero energy buildings and facilities. Research papers addressing resolving issues of smart integration of micro-grids into public grid are also solicited.
Organized by: Dr. Ahmad Atieh
Coordinated by: Dr. Fariborz Haghighat  

Wind as a Source of Energy (WSE)

The session  accepts research papers on rotors and blades aerodynamics; machine subsystems and components design; power generation control and transmission; wind potential estimation and evaluation, wind speed measurement and recording.
Extended versions of selected papers will be published in WEJ. 
Organized byDr. Mohamed Kesraoui 
Coordinated by: Prof. Jon McGowan

Optimization of Renewable Energy Resources (ORER)

Papers should formulate studies and implementations that improve the use of renewable energy resources. Optimization may be technological or control based. Although the papers can deal with any renewable energy sources, contributions for photovoltaic systems are specially welcomed.
Extended versions of selected papers will be published in IJEOE.
Organized by: Prof. Mohamed FAISAL 

Chars Production, Characterization and Applications (CPCA)

Papers should present the chars production methods (pyrolysis, hydrothermal carbonization, etc.), their characterization techniques (Scanning Electronic Microscopy, X-Ray Fluorescence, Nitrogen adsorption, Raman Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy,)  their properties and their applications (gasification, co-combustion, catalysts, adsorbents precursor, soil amendment, carbon fuel cells, supercapacitors.)
Organized by: Dr. Mejdi Jeguirim

 Advances in Renewable Energy: Conversion And Application  (ARE-CA)

Papers should present advances in all topics of renewable energy: wind energy,solar thermal, photovoltaics, solar materials, conversion and management, etc. A strong emphasis on applications is required such as solar devices for home and industrial uses, solar heating and cooling systems, solar power systems and units, and agricultural uses of solar energy.
Organized by: Prof. Ahmad Harb

Challenges in Renewable Energy Research

Papers should present challenges in all researches of renewable energy: wind energy, solar thermal, photovoltaics, solar materials, optimization, smart grid.
