Call For Papers: Data Analytics for Energy, Water, and Environment | IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management

IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management

Special Issue on Data Analytics for Energy, Water, and Environment

In 2008, the U.S. National Academy of Engineering proposed 14 grand challenges for engineering, of which five were related to energy, water, and environment. The world population has exceeded 7.6 billion in 2018, up from 6.7 billion in 2008. A common goal of the human beings is to meet the global need of energy and water without sacrificing the environment.

A growing interest in the recent decade is data analytics. Many industries have embarked analytics to extract actionable insights from the data and to make informed business decisions. This special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management is aimed at highlighting the state of the art in data analytics applications in energy, water and environment.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Quantitative models for water-energy nexus
  • Evaluating energy technology portfolios
  • Data integration and infusion for energy, water and environment applications
  • Cyber-physical systems for sustainable development
  • Power supply and air pollution
  • Building energy efficiency and indoor air quality
  • Energy efficiency analytics enabled by smart meter data
  • Clean energy/water access 
  • Energy systems planning under climate and water challenges
  • Risks and uncertainties in energy engineering projects
  • Energy management considering consumer behaviors
  • Sustainable supply chain design and inventory control
  • Water and energy management in sustainable agriculture
  • Environment, energy, and alternative transportation technologies
