    Special Issue on Development and Integration of Renewable Energy Resources in the Commercial and Industrial Sectors

    The increase in energy demands is a prevalent and ongoing issue, which can no longer be solely sustained through traditional sources such as fossil fuels or nuclear. Concerns regarding the future availability of these resources and their cumulative damage to the environment has spawn a great interest within the academic and industrial com-munities to exploit and make use of alternative energy resources to attain new levels of energy sustainability. These alternatives are comprised of all forms of energy classified as renewable resources, including solar, wind, geothermal, and others. The focus and intention of this special issue is to aggregate a collection of research regarding renewable energy in all aspects related to the generation, distribution, storage, modeling and simulation, as well as, cost assessment and market penetration initiatives.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring 
    Development and Integration of Renewable Energy Resources in the Commercial and Industrial Sectors.

    In particular, we seek papers in, but not limited to, the following subfields:
    ? Transmission of renewal energies
    ? Developments and planning of renewable energy infrastructures
    ? Assessment management policies
    ? Optimization of renewable energy market penetration
    ? Business modeling
    ? Capacity planning
    ? Design and optimization of infrastructure
    ? Hybrid Energy Systems
    ? Resource forecasting and prediction
    ? Mathematical models

    Authors should read over the journal’s Author’s Guidelines carefully before submission, Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of 
    their complete manuscript through the journal Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue’’ under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “
    Special Issue-Development and Integration of Renewable Energy Resources in the Commercial and Industrial Sectors” should be chosen during your submission.

    According to the following timetable:
