New Technologies for Low-carbon Oriented Energy-Transportation Nexus

The energy supply structure optimization and resource-saving energy consumption can significantly enhance the green and intelligent development of transportation systems, and provide a promising approach for realizing carbon neutrality. From the energy supply side, the penetration level of green energy in transportation systems could be promoted by fully exploiting the renewable energy-installing potential of transportation system assets, such as photovoltaic access on railway slopes, rooftop photovoltaic feed-in of expressway service areas, tidal energy, photovoltaic and wind power connections in port breakwaters; from the energy consumption side, analyzing the power, gas, heat, cold, hydrogen and other diversified energy consumption patterns of transportation systems and forming a collaborative multi-energy operation method could improve the energy utilization efficiency of transportation systems. These irreversible trends will surely drive the transportation systems into energy-transportation integrated systems, and bring huge challenges including the integration mode and coupling mechanism of energy-transportation nexus, the typical architecture and information technology, the collaborative planning and operation strategies, the security and reliability assessment, etc., of energy-transportation nexus. This special section focuses on the energy-transportation nexus for the low-carbon future and aims at disseminating state-of-the-art technologies for handling these challenges.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Integration mode of energy-transportation nexus
• Coupling mechanism of energy-transportation nexus
• Typical architecture of energy-transportation nexus
• Information technology of energy-transportation nexus
• Collaborative planning methods of energy-transportation nexus
• Coordinated operation of energy-transportation nexus
• Operation situational awareness of energy-transportation nexus
• Security and reliability assessment of energy-transportation nexus
• Full life cycle economic evaluation of energy-transportation nexus
• Engineering construction experience of energy-transportation nexus
