Special Issue on

Sustainable energy sources for an energy transition in Latin America

 

With an increasing global energy demand, mainly depending on fossil fuels and projected to rise by 1% per year until 2040, the energy transition process is a crucial enabler of sustainable development and climate resilience. Thus, achieving a carbon-free energy generation scheme capable of satisfying the global energy demand while, at the same time, efficiently articulating the tension between energy demand and carbon reduction commitments, is the world's most urgent mission for contributing to the energy transition. Ocean, wind, and solar power sources are, to date, either the most mature or promising technologies to achieve the carbon neutrality goal.

 

The purpose of this special issue (SI) is to provide a forum for interested readers in the areas of sustainable energies to share research aspects related to the energy transition, as well as its current situation and future perspectives in Latin America and its connection with the whole World. We invite researchers and professionals to present their research related to this process. We call for submissions related to Ocean, Hydrogen, Solar, and Wind energies (including other emergent technologies), with special emphasis on the following topics, but not limited to:

 

  • Control of energy systems;
  • Economic analysis;
  • Energy storage systems;
  • Green Algorithms;
  • Modeling;
  • New harvesting technologies;
  • Optimization, control, and stability of power systems with high penetration of renewable energy;
  • Performance;
  • Resource and energy absorption optimization;
  • Resource assessment;
  • Sustainable energy resources integration; and
  • Tools for Steady-State Analysis of Microgrids.

 

Article Selection

Papers will be submitted and rigorously reviewed in a single-blind review by experts in the field before being approved by the Guest Editors, at the reviewers’ recommendation. Original and innovative contributions are expected using emerging technologies at the service of the Latin American society. To accept the paper as part of this SI, articles should be uploaded to the IEEE platform. Any questions about this special number can be addressed to Dr Erivelton Nepomuceno at the following email: erivelton.nepomuceno@mu.ie.
