Description: This collection comprises selected papers from the 3 rd International Congress on Energy and Environment Engineering and Management. Each Congress provides an opportunity for academics, scientific consultants and companies to share days of interaction that permit the free interchange of experience and, at the same time, create and renew links between different work-groups. This Congress included a total of six thematic areas, covering a broad spectrum within the applications associated with environmental engineering, energy installations, renewable energy, electromechanics, materials and project engineering. The contents therefore provide a handy introduction to the subject.
