Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Innovations in hybrid renewable energy technologies are a response to the challenges of climate change, energy costs, energy security and the need to create sustainable societies. Renewable energy is a constantly evolving sector, and one that will play a key role in shaping the future of energy. Progress and research enable the use of PV modules or heat pumps in various atmospheric conditions and on various scales. Trends in wind energy also indicate the dynamic growth of this sector: wind turbines have become more efficient and economical, and innovative offshore projects are expanding the potential of wind farms into deep sea areas. Modern hybrid technologies combining various sources of renewable energy enable the optimal use of these resources depending on weather conditions and energy needs.

We are seeing the integration of energy systems in our homes, for instance through the electrification of heating systems and electromobility, using V2G technology. It is becoming increasingly necessary to implement energy storage technology based on classic warehouses and hydrogen techniques.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect the latest interesting and original research that demonstrates the energy, environmental, economic and social benefits resulting from the use of integrated renewable energy systems in residential buildings and industry. Taking into account the need to apply RES systems in systems subject to thermal modernization, it is also necessary to integrate RES systems not only with each other, but also with classic installations based on fossil sources in the transition period.

Manuscripts presenting research, case studies as well as reviews exploring the state of the art are welcome in this Special Issue. Its scope covers (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Hybrid energy systems;
  • Hydrogen systems;
  • Home and industry heat pumps with innovative lower heat sources;
  • Biomass and biogas technology;
  • Wind and water energy technology;
  • Photovoltaic and solar installations;
  • Energy management in buildings, homes and industry;
  • Electromobility integrated with renewable energy systems.

The above list is not exhaustive, and, in any case, works on areas not listed, but interesting for the Special Issue, are invited.

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.
