Climate change without adequate countermeasures has become one of humanity's greatest threat. Energy production by means of renewable energy sources is therefore one of the crucial measures that will play a paramount role in reducing the pollutant emissions of fossil fuel dependency. Small islands in particular are an exemplary case of the...

Collaboration in the supply chain is nowadays seen in the scientific community as the “next best thing” in supply chain optimization (Ballot, 2015; Barratt & Oliveira, 2001; Barratt, 2004; Ireland & Bruce, 2000). Although widely investigated and often mentioned in literature, the concept of supply chain collaboration is not precisely defined ...

The call for lower CO2 emissions has increased the integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity system. However, these intermittent sources do not follow the cycles of demand and are unpredictable in their nature. As the electrical system needs to constantly balance supply and demand, these renewable sources cause problems in the...
