About This Special Issue
Energy environmental and climate policies are inextricably linked. All energy production and consumption has environmental and climate impacts. Whilst it is often tempting to overlook the environment during difficult economic times, the challenges of producing and using energy resources sustainably and protecting our natural environment equally represent an opportunity to pursue sustainable economic growth. Environment deterioration including climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and the top environmental priority. In order to cope with the challenges of climate change and promote sustainable development an ambitious and cohesive climate and energy policy is needed at international level. This special issue is to bring together professional opinions on the energy, environmental and climate policy.

    Abstract: The second law efficiency is a main tool for evaluating the irreversibility through a system. Models have been applied for multistage flash (MSF) and mechanical vapor compression (MVC) distillation for evaluating the entropy generation at each component in the process. The minimum work of separation (which is the work consider to extract a unit of ... Show More

    Abstract: The energy saving and emission reduction in thermal plant is complex, with the open, non-equilibrium and interoperability features. In order to identifying the order parameters affecting plant system, a co-evolution model of energy saving and emission reduction in thermal power plant was built based on synergetic theory.
