Special Issue on: "Non-Conventional Energy Technology"

Guest Editors:
Dr. Manu Augustine, Prof. Narendra Kumar Banthiya and Prof. Alok Mathur, Swami Keshvanand Institute of Technology, Management and Gramothan, India

The aim of this special issue is to assimilate the latest research in “non-conventional energy technology” and the areas affected by technological advancements in this field. We aim to provide a platform where scientists, researchers, academicians, industry experts, new aspirants, as well as students of science and technology can come together and engage in a fruitful exchange of views and ideas pertaining to the theme of the conference.

However, the scope is not limited, and is wide enough to encompass other related concerns which include environmental and socio-economic impact, security and defence technology, innovative designs, enhancements and improvements in existing frameworks, sustainable technological advancement, societal welfare etc. We intend to bring together a compilation of research work from the best minds from around the world to cover all aspects of non-conventional energy technology from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on New and Renewable Energy Resources for a Sustainable future. (ICONRER-2017), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
