Special Issue on Advances in Green Driving and Sustainable Energy Practices
Over the last two decades, the world has witnessed a continuous rise in CO2 emission and energy consumption, which makes sustainable energy a major challenge worldwide. A growing population and emerging desire for luxurious transportation services put the global energy scene in flux. Though each country makes an attempt to achieve the goal of a low-carbon economy with its unique energy transition models, they still face different kinds of challenges. The question is: How do we ensure clean and affordable energy with reasonable economic progress? The answer requires a global response with specific emphasis on global energy solutions, including clean energy, green driving, and sustainable energy management practices.
Green energy, also called clean energy, is the only form of sustainable energy, which is derived from renewable sources such as sun, wind, geothermal energy, etc. Infusing green energy solutions is the key to leverage sustainable energy management practices that make energy sources more reliable, cost-efficient, and environmentally safe, paving the way for global economic growth. On the other side, up until now, the automobile industry has played an inevitable role in polluting the environment. Thus, promoting environmentally aware driving practices can significantly moderate carbon footprints and reduce the harmful effects of climate change and other environmental constraints. Green driving and sustainable energy sources fulfill transportation needs in an eco-friendly way. No matter what kind of car we drive, incorporating simple green driving practices such as using renewable fuels, driving slower and smarter, using fuel-efficient and low-emission vehicles, keeping up regular car maintenance, car sharing, and using common transportation services can significantly improve energy efficiency with lesser CO2 emissions. Though green driving and sustainable energy are not mutually exclusive, transitioning towards green driving marks a paradigm shift in sustainable energy practices, which results in global economic progress.
This special issue aims to bring forward the latest developments and advancements in green driving and energy management practices for sustainable economic growth. These instances do not only help to master the above-mentioned challenges but also generate new opportunities for the world of the energy sphere and create new revenue streams.
