Applied Energy: Low Carbon Cities and Urban Energy Systems

Cities are responsible for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions,  are increasingly becoming a top priority for numerous global initiatives aimed at reducing the cost and carbon footprint of energy-related products, services, and activities. Due to the growing demands and pressures on energy infrastructure and resources, urban infrastructure and consumers must adapt intelligently to ensure efficient, affordable, and sustainable solutions. Addressing this challenge of developing intelligent energy solutions for achieving sustainable development goals and building resilient urban systems is a complex and global endeavor that involves various interdisciplinary fields.

The Special Issue is to feature the most recent developments and state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research across the areas of low carbon cities, urban energy systems, and many others, focusing on technologies, visionary ideas, case studies, and intelligent systems to build, facilitate and manage cities.

Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Urban energy systems-plannings, applications and technologies
  • Artificial intelligence and IoT in energy systems
  • Big data and energy
  • EV and eco-traffic
  • Energy storage
  • Materials for renewable and sustainable energy
  • Urban emissions mitigation
  • Low carbon and ecological city indicators
  • Energy management, policy and economics
  • Smart Buildings
  • Energy efficiency in buildings

Submission Instructions

  • Select special issue “Applied Energy: Low Carbon Cities and Urban Energy Systems” when submitting your paper to ScholarOne.
  • The special issue will feature both critical reviews and research papers. A review is expected to present a critical overview of the state-of-the-art of a topic, with critically selected examples, to point the reader to trends and likely future developments, and to give a selection of important references to the current literature. For a research paper, the paper length must be appropriate to the content. There is no strict page limit.
