Energy Conversion and Management provides an ideal platform to researchers from industry and academia to exchange information and outline the research needs for developing advanced energy conversion technologies and to improve the existing ones. It describes the recent research and development in the world in following theme areas:
• Energy Conversion Technologies and Modeling
• Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Efficiency
• Carbon Capture and Storage Policy
• Sustainable Energy Options
• Solar Heating and Cooling Applications
• Fuel Cells and Energy Storage
It also features the new technologies for generation of energy from eco-friendly sources and its management. The economic health of any country is almost in commensuration of per capita energy consumption in that country. Therefore a secure, adequate, affordable, environment-friendly and reliable supply of energy is thus a necessary precondition for sustainable development.
