The rapid and global development of an energy sector based on renewables and green sources is critical for its decarbonization in a climate-friendly scenario. Nevertheless, CO2 capture and storage (CCS) remains necessary for abating CO2 emissions from operating fossil fuel-fired power stations and from many industrial sources that are hard or impossible to decarbonize otherwise. Furthermore, CO2 removal technologies, such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air capture (DAC), will also be necessary to reduce the high atmospheric concentration of CO2, if the ambitious climate goals established in the Paris Agreement are to be met. CO2 utilization (CU), in combination with renewable energy, is also foreseen to contribute to displace fossil fuels in a carbon-neutral scenario.
This Special Issue provides an overview of the recent advances in the referred topics and contributes to the climate agenda through the dissemination of enhanced scientific and multidisciplinary knowledge by bringing focus on the decarbonization of the economy in order to meet environmental goals. We therefore invite the submission of papers on innovative technical developments, reviews, case studies, analytical studies, as well as assessment papers from different disciplines, which are relevant to CCS, BECCS, DAC, CU, and a combination of these with renewable energy production.

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.
