Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pollution from transport systems is a global problem that can no longer be overlooked. The abatement actions of harmful substances in the air are on the agenda of every nation, and they are necessary today to safeguard our welfare and that of our planet. New technologies related to hybrid electric vehicles are making great strides in reducing emissions. In addition, the implementation of new technologies is also convenient from an economic point of view. In fact, fuel consumption can be reduced by implementing the use of hybrid vehicles. Different hybrid configurations have been studied, corresponding to different architectures developed by researchers and research and development groups worldwide. Regarding energy flows, different strategy logic or vehicle management units are adopted. Various configurations and vehicles are studied by simulating different driving cycles, both European approval and homologation and customer ones (typically municipal and university).

While intense research activities have been dedicated to this field, several issues require further research prior to achieving a full commercialization of hybrid vehicles. This Special Issue seeks to contribute to disseminating the most recent advancements in the field with respect to both modelling and experimental analysis. The focus is placed on research covering all aspects of hybrid vehicles, including packaging, components design and realization, energy management and strategy, energy storage, insertion into the transportation system, and final usage. This also includes the development of new electric devices (fuel cell, ultra-capacitors, DC motor/generator, etc.), and recharging systems and their management.

We look forward to considering your submissions.

Prof. Dr. Roberto Capata

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.
