In the worldwide attempt to contribute to the energy transition, the solution of advanced heat transfer problems is of concern for several branches of power and energy engineering, and often becomes a key point in enabling new technologies or increasing the efficiency of the well-established technologies. If we remain within single-phase fluids, heat transfer modeling is related to issues in, e.g., conjugate heat transfer, radiation, and turbulent convection. In the applications, challenging problems can range from the removal of local high heat fluxes to the cooling/heating of devices with complex geometries or the need for the use-specific fluids as thermal vectors. The situations where more phases are involved could be even more complicated by the simultaneous occurrence of boiling heat transfer and two-phase phenomena. Heat transfer without the use of any fluids is also very fascinating and could be potentially ground-breaking in several applications.
The Special Issue we are launching presents issues encountered and solved in the modeling of advanced heat transfer problems in disparate engineering fields. The Special Issue will serve as a platform where ideas and methods can be shared and result in cross-fertilization between the different fields. We welcome papers where, apart from specific applications, the main achievements by the authors could be clearly understood, out of the peculiarities of the specific cases, and offered as lessons for readers. We look forward to reading your latest achievements in any of the directions highlighted above.

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.
