New Energy and Future Energy Systems
Proceedings of NEFES 2022, online conference, China, 25-28 October 2022
With energy prices at an all-time high worldwide and the climate crisis making the need to replace fossil fuels an increasingly urgent issue, the development of new energy systems for the future has never been more important.
This book presents the proceedings of NEFES 2022, the 7th International Conference on New Energy and Future Energy Systems, originally scheduled to take place in Nanjing from 25 to 28 October 2022, but ultimately held as a fully virtual event as a result of ongoing pandemic restrictions. The NEFES conferences are dedicated to promoting scientific interchange among researchers, developers, engineers, students, and practitioners from around the world, providing participants with an opportunity to share their latest achievements and discuss the possible challenges of new energy and future energy systems. A total of 170 submissions were received for the conference, of which 34 papers were ultimately selected for presentation and publication after careful review and checking for plagiarism by means of the iThenticate tool. Topics addressed at NEFES 2022 included all aspects of energy, including solar and wind energy, smart grids, power transmission and distribution, electric vehicles, biomass, biofuels, bioenergy, new energy materials, energy-saving materials, energy storage materials and technology, energy and nanotechnology, hybrid energy systems, advanced energy technologies, energy generation and conversion, clean coal technology, renewable technology, fuel cells, hydro-energy, and geothermal energy.
Providing a current overview of the latest developments in many energy technologies, the book will be of interest to all those working in the field.
