About This Topic

Energy is an indispensable commodity for human survival. Affordable, accessible and secure energy supply options are required for empowering developing communities across the globe to fulfil the social, economic and environmental objectives of sustainability and to achieve the seventh goal of Sustainable Development as proposed by UNEP in 2015. As we approach the 21st century, this resource will become increasingly scarce due to the rapid growth in human population and consumption. The population of developing countries is growing at an incredible rate, so resource scarcity is currently a problem, especially when we are on the lookout for any available non-renewable resources which can be easily and quickly used to meet the immediate demand. Instead, we need to have a long term vision for achieving sustainable energy futures for these communities. This special issue thus aims to cover the following topics, which are relevant for achieving sustainable energy supply for developing communities.


·       Deployment of renewable energy technologies
·       Remote area power supply options
·       Micro-grid
·       Energy conservation and management
·       Rural energy modelling
·       Barrier to sustainable energy supply
·       Rural energy planning and policy
