Renewable energy is derived from renewable sources, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal warming. This type of energy source is opposed to fossil fuels, that are consumed much faster than they are renewed. The uses of renewable energy can be divided into four important areas: power generation, heating and cooling, transportation, and rural energy services (off-grid). The achievement of renewable energy systems with maximum efficiency is one of the most critical issues in designing and optimising power systems. Using new methods that can increase the efficiency of renewable systems with minimum cost is very important. These methods can analyse renewable energy systems to determine the functional variables to achieve maximum efficiency, or suggest a new configuration with maximum efficiency by changing the structure of pre-existing systems. This collection aims to compile research that focuses on new configurations and new analysis methods for energy systems.

One of the critical issues in optimising and selecting renewable energy systems is to achieve designs that have maximum efficiency. Various methods have been tried to achieve optimal operation points of renewable energy systems or determine the optimal configuration, including energy, exergy, exergoeconomic, risk, environmental and control analysis. These methods have advantages and disadvantages, such as cost, instability, ecological impacts, and hazards potential. This Research Topic aims to collect new research that can be used to optimise renewable energy systems to minimise the disadvantages of previous methods. The proposed methods can be completely new or obtained from a combination of other methods.

This Research Topic welcomes contribution in the following areas:
• New methods for modelling and prediction in renewable energy systems;
• New integrated renewable energy systems;
• Energy management in renewable energy systems;
• Economic analysis of renewable energy systems;
• Renewable energy storage;
• Heat engines:
  o Biomass powered heat engines;
  o Solar powered heat engines;
  o Wind-powered energy systems;
  o Geothermal powered energy systems;
• Application of renewable energy in buildings.

Keywords: Renewable energy, Energy system, Heat engine, Energy storage


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
