Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increasing demand of the global environment change and regional sustainable development, how to utilize the renewable energy for the energy saving and carbon-emission reduction in such aspects as industry, building and traffic, has become an urgent and challenging issue to be addressed. For example, it is reported that that the combined buildings and construction sectors are responsible for 40% of global energy use and 37% of global CO2 emissions. As a result, new types of energy systems related to wind power, solar power, biomass and geothermal energy arise, which can generate, store, distribute and flexibly use renewable energy sources, and differ from the traditional energy system merely interacted with the power grid. Meanwhile, these new energy power systems also face some practical problems as the multi-level voltage regulation, AC/DC conversion, power transmission limitation and power quality.

This Special Issue aims to invite theoretical and application-driven researchers to present and disseminate the most recent advances related to energy saving and carbon-emission reduction by using renewable energy.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in renewable energy technology;
  • Design, modelling and simulation of renewable energy systems;
  • Optimization and control of renewable energy systems;
  • Energy storage and integration;
  • Calculation and evaluation of carbon emission;
  • Grid-connected photovoltaic power systems;
  • Energy Internet and electricity market;
  • Microgrid, smart grid and smart energy;
  • Topology and robust control of modular multilevel AC/DC converters and inverters;
  • Networked and multi-network cooperative control.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
