Futuristic Projects in Energy and Automation Sectors is a review of analyses on energy transitions in power grids and the opportunities and challenges for building sustainable energy systems to improve human capabilities. 14 chapters examine renewable energy-based and automated systems, with a focus on projects that are designed with sustainability in mind. Topics covered in this review include 1) power systems, 2) renewable energy, 3) power electronics, 4) energy storage and conversion, 5) home automation, 6) control systems, 7) robotics, 8) artificial intelligence, and 9) technology to fight COVID-19.

This review will be of interest to scholars, and policymakers interested in futuristic and urban and rural energy planning, sustainable and renewable energy projects, sustainable development, and environment management.


Scholars, and policymakers interested in futuristic urban and rural energy planning, sustainable and renewable energy projects, sustainable development, and environment management.


Energy conservation and optimization are the prime mottoes of many industries and governments of the current time. Not only nations thriving hard to reduce the comprehensive usage of fossil fuel, but also there is an intense need to develop alternate energy sources to cater to the future generation world. On one hand, carbon credit is an accepted ticket to curb carbon emissions, while promoting carbon free energy sources like solar cells, wind mills, tidal turbines, biofuel, and hydel-turbo-generator are the center point of interest among the power merchants on the other hand. There have been huge incentives and promotions by governments and capitalists on utilizing renewable energy resources in recent years. This motivation has prompted the faculty and students of a range of colleges in India and around the world to work on the most recent experiments in these areas and publish the compiled work as a bible of real time projects that could better serve as a handbook of futuristic projects in energy systems and allied fields.

No doubt, the automation sector is an integral part of the recent development in the energy sector, be it automation, robotics, or artificial intelligence. So, the book is a conglomeration of advances in the energy sector and automation. The unique feature of this book lies in the fact that the theoretical coverage is either nominal or pertains to the need for the real time projects. So, the reader will encounter more of a practical situation in a given area of technology. The reader would encounter a wide variety of projects that would open a broad area of research in the field. This book would find its contribution to the consultancy firms who apply new ideas and sponsor such futuristic viable projects. This compilation would definitely invite the attention of the Sector Skills Councils of India and skill training programs worldwide which extend financial and technical support toward the field oriented technical enhancements in service industries. The projects presented in this work would probably develop an insight among the technocrats to determine an ecosystem that relates the apparently disparate areas of future interest, viz. energy systems, power systems, e-vehicles, soft solutions, automation, and artificial intelligence. I believe that this release would find itself as a harbinger in the series of editions in the future.
