    Sustainability is a topic of pivotal importance today due to various environmental problems such as global warming, increasing pollution, and depletion of nonrenewable natural resources. This research-oriented book, Sustainability in Energy and Environment: Engineered Materials and Smart Computational Techniques, covers integrated sustainable designs for energy and environmental engineering as well as computer science.

    In this new title, the key components of energy are described, and the main elements of sustainability are introduced with an emphasis on sustainable development. The book also covers smart computational technologies in the domain of energy and environmental systems engineering. The book is broadly divided into three themes: energy, environment, and sustainable development.

    In the first section of this book, components of energy sustainability are described and examined with various other factors. Several case studies on enhancing energy sustainability and sustainable development are presented in section two.

    This volume will prove to be a valuable reference for professionals as well as research students interested in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development.
