Special Issue On: Impact of Climatic Change in Optimization of Water and Energy Systems

Submission Due Date
5/1/2018

Introduction
In recent years the impact of climatic abnormality has become tangible. The uncontrolled extraction of natural resources, technological advancements and burgeoning population has induced uneven distribution of natural resources which are significant in sustenance of livelihood in various parts of the World. Two basic requirements for human existence, water and energy, has now become scarce and unusable which have enforced mankind to look for proper procedure for managing these two resources. The vision is to utilize the existing resource optimally such that maximum benefit can be retrieved under minimum wastage of the resource. Optimal management of both water and energy systems has now become essential and utilization of soft computation and other optimization techniques are practiced worldwide to achieve the vision.

Interdependent systems providing water and energy services are necessary for agriculture. Climate change and increased resource demands are expected to cause frequent and severe strains on these systems. Arizona's predominately irrigated agriculture relies on water imported through an energy intensive process from water-stressed regions. Most irrigation in Arizona is electricity powered, so failures in energy or water systems can cascade to the food system, creating a food-energy-water (FEW) nexus of vulnerability. According to the investigation conducted by Berardy and Chester (2017), the predicted temperature increase above the baseline could decrease yields by up to 12.2% per 1 °C for major Arizona crops and require increased irrigation of about 2.6% per 1 °C which in turn will increment the energy cost of the system.

Energy is a vital input for social and economic development. As a result of the generalization of agricultural, industrial and domestic activities increases the demand for energy remarkably, especially in emergent countries. This has meant rapid grower in the level of greenhouse gas emissions and the increase in fuel prices, which are the main driving forces behind efforts to utilize renewable energy sources more effectively. Despite the obvious advantages of renewable energy, it presents important drawbacks, such as the discontinuity of generation, as most renewable energy resources depend on the climate, which is why their use requires complex design, planning and control optimization methods.

The continuous development in computer hardware and software has helped the researchers to deal with these problems in a more extensive and optimal manner which can be seen in the large number of optimization methods being applied to the renewable and sustainable energy field. Banos et.al.,2011) reviewed the current computational optimization methods applied to renewable and sustainable energy and found that the techniques are an efficient and inexpensive solution to find competence to minimize risks in a water and energy based systems. Eusuf and Lansey(2003) employed meta-heuristic algorithms for solving discrete optimization problems. It can be observed that day by day the application of soft computation techniques in optimization of water and energy systems are growing. However, there is still a gap in research works which considers climate change impacts during optimization of such sustainable systems.

Objective
In the present issue the main objective is to provide a platform for dessimation of original works which can show a cost effective but efficient solution to the problem of managing the resources in the most optimal manner considering the impact of climate change. The original and innovative works which utilizes new and existing soft computation techniques to optimize the utilization of potential to the maximum, recognizing the impact of climatic aberrations on the interrelationships that exist in a water based energy or energy based water systems.

Introduction
Theme:
Energy plays an important role in economic and social development of the society. The demand of the energy has been increasing rapidly because of agriculture, industrial and domestic uses/activities in the developed as well as in developing countries. These higher demand/uses has been increasing the prices of fuels and also playing a vital role in emission of green house gases. Price and pollution caused by the conventional fuels are the main driving forces in the utilization of renewal energy sources more effectively. Wind energy, Solar energy, Hydropower, Bio-energy, Geothermal energy, etc, falls in the area of renewable energies. Renewable energy has many advantages over conventional energy such as: lower or no generation cost, lower emission rate, higher availability, etc but also have some disadvantages such as: higher initial or investment cost, non availability throughout the year and dependency on the climate and geometric conditions etc. These disadvantages of renewal energy has increased the cost of energy storage systems and also increased the demand of hybrid energy system. Maintaining suitable supply of the renewal energy also requires a higher level of design, planning & control and resources optimization. A number of techniques have been proposed for optimization of renewal energy production and storage such as: heuristic approaches, meta-heuristics techniques, mathematical models, exact solution techniques, fuzzy logic, Data mining, neural network and decision making techniques etc.
