The term "green technology" is composed of two terms as technology and green technology itself. The technology refers to the application of knowledge for practical purposes whereas the term "green technology" refers to the application of the group of methods and materials from various techniques involving artificial intelligence for generating and preserving energy for the sustainable environment.
Benefits of using green technologies are immense. One of the most sought after goals of major world economies is to reduce carbon emissions and control temperature rise, which can be addressed by the use of green technologies such as sustainable manufacturing, green buildings, fuel efficient transportation, paperless offices, energy efficiency measures, waste recycling etc.
For the sustainable environment, energy efficiency is the burning issue nowadays. Researchers are highly involved in this area. This is due to the fact that energy demand is exponentially growing whereas, energy resources are depleting day by day. This requires optimal use of energy resources. In order to find the optimal use of these resources researchers need to explore optimisation techniques. This issue will be a source of motivation to the researcher and an opportunity to exchange knowledge of energy efficiency and the optimisation tools for development of green technologies.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Intelligent Circuits and Systems (ICICS-2018), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
- Distributed energy resources
- Plug-in-hybrid electric vehicles
- Energy efficient electric drives
- Electric car, bus and truck systems
- Fuel cells
- Energy management systems
- Energy trading
- Energy efficiency
- Issues related to plug-in-vehicles
- Challenges for plug-in-hybrid electric vehicles in developing countries
- Alternative source systems of in-vehicle electricity production
- High power and energy batteries
- Electric traction system
- Energy efficiency measures
- Environmental/cost efficiency, energy savings algorithms
- Social, economic and environmental issues associated with PHEVs
- Storage of electric power
- Charging stations for PHEVs
