The cost of Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) infrastructure is one of the problems which stand as a barrier in the way of widespread Electric Vehicles (EV). In this paper, the optimal design and operation of a renewable-powered EVCS will be introduced with minimizing cost and air pollution. By considering the station located in isolated area and will be supplied by hybrid Energy Sources. Configuration, sizing, economic optimization, operation and its effect on the environment are discussed. The proposed hybrid micro-grid consists of, photovoltaic panels, storage batteries, wind turbines, biogas generator and also a diesel generator. The case study of this work is to satisfy the 1056 KWh/day demand of EVCS for using at the selected site. Five different configurations of energy sources are studied to get the optimum case. HOMER software is used to implement the simulation model; the model is based on economic and environmental factors. Finally, the study introduces a cost-effective, socially and sustainable accepted design that can be useful in specifying the appropriateness of optimal design for other EVCSs.
Contribution/ Originality
This study is one of very few that investigated an optimal hybrid energy configuring the power system to operate the electric vehicle charging station in Egypt. This study documents that renewable energy sources are effective option to reduce the emissions from burning fossil fuels and also minimize cost of energy.

Considerable efforts have been made to protect people from indoor air pollutant exposure as approximately 80% of people spend time indoors where pollution is often worse than outside. Further, vulnerable populations, including elderly, children, and pregnant women, spend an excessively of time indoors, exposing them to pollutants that are responsible for both short-term and long-term negative health effects, resulting an estimated 4 million premature deaths annually. Aim of this research was to assess impressions of domestic use of solid fuels (firewood and charcoals) burning on Particulate Matter PM2.5 and PM10, which are particles that are less than or equal to 2.5 and 10 micrograms (?m) in diameter respectively within Kigali the capital city of Rwanda. A sample of 31 households using only charcoals and woods for cooking were selected for targeted 72 hours of monitoring. Portable air quality sensors AirVisual Nodes were used to measure concentration levels of PM2.5 and PM10 in microgram per cubic meter (?g/m3). Results showed that homes using wood for cooking experience moderately high concentrations level of PM2.5 and PM10, over 1000 ?g/m3 and 1200 ?g/m3 respectively, whereas homes using charcoals for cooking had lower concentrations. This later direct to that: Outstanding to low market prices of these solid fuels, poorer households are highly exposed to indoor air pollution. So, an alternative reasonably priced domestic energy to be used for cooking are indorsed and pollution levels survey in households using combination or different types of fuels for cooking are recommended for future research.
Contribution/ Originality
The paper's primary contribution is that:
 • Households using woods and charcoals for cooking activities are exposed to high air pollution levels.
• An alternative reasonably priced domestic energy to be used for cooking should be used as a primary energy for cooking.

One of the most important solutions for the climate change crisis is the development of renewable energy sources like photovoltaic energy. This study is conducted to explore the socio economic and environmental impact of using solar powered automated drip irrigation system on drip owners of Faisalabad division. Drip irrigation technology takes into account innovations in the agricultural sector and their acceptance on behalf of farmers due to various factors of its particular adjustment goes back to social, economic and climatic conditions. Solar powered drip irrigation system is a micro irrigation system that saves water (H2O) and nutrients by allowing water to slowly drip to the roots of plants and minimize water evaporation by using indigenous resources like photovoltaic energy. This study focused on powered automated drip irrigation methods that have a significant impact on resource savings like saving in energy, labour cost and less use of water, improve crop yields and farmer profit that help to improve life of the rural areas. A sample of 48 respondents was selected conveniently from the Faisalabad division. Respondents were solar drip adopter. Descriptive and inferential statistical techniques were applied for data analysis to check the impact of solar drip irrigation on farmer. It was found that majority of solar drip owners are highly agreed to have change in their social status and self-reliance that are 39.58% and 72.92%. Using solar drip systems 79.17% farmers improve their product quality. This indicates that most solar drip owners have high socio-economic and environmental impact.
Contribution/ Originality

The alarming awareness and increasing concern over effect of global warming, and environmental pollution due to the continuous combustion of fossil fuels has necessitated the call for an alternative renewable energy. The trepidation on the sustainability of the global food supply due to emphasis on corn production to meet the increased demand for bioethanol led to the need to assess the potential of alternative crops as sources of bioethanol production. On this focus, cassava proved to be an ideal crop to fulfil this need as it is more abundant and meeting requirement in serving both edible and nonedible usage than corn. However, the yield and quality of bioethanol produced from cassava can be impacted by alteration of temperature during production process. From this research, production of bioethanol from cassava was found to be optimum at a temperature of 35°C, with maximum yield of 95% and any increase beyond 40°C leads to the gelatinization of starch. The research has stroke a balance at where and when temperature needs to be altered to increase yield.
Contribution/ Originality
This study contributes to the existing literature by exploring the specific influence of reaction temperature as a limiting factor in bioethanol synthesis. It is our firm believe that through this kind of study, bioethanol production process can successfully be optimized.

In the era of ever-rising demands of electrical energy, the concerns related to scarcity and environmental damages associated with the application of fossil fuels have increased. Renewable energy resources have proved to be a blessing. With their world-class ability to produce zero greenhouse emissions and diversifying the energy supply in turn reducing the dependency on fossil fuels, renewable energy resources have been gaining quite a lot of popularity in the electricity generation sector. Aiming to create a more well developed, efficient, and reliable system, this paper focuses on the concept of employing the best possible application of the most abundant source of energy - Solar Energy. The system is based on mechanically tracking the position of the Sun and orienting the Solar Panel with respect to the Sun’s radiation for achieving the maximum output by incorporating the application of Microcontroller. The proposed system focuses on the design and simulation of a Microcontroller-based solar tracking system on Proteus 8 professional software.
