Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Solar and wind energy are two key renewable energy sources that have gained significant traction recently. Solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbine technologies have advanced rapidly, substantially contributing to global energy generation. Combining these two renewable sources into hybrid energy systems offers several advantages, including improved reliability, energy production optimization, and better resource utilization. This Special Issue explores recent advances and addresses emerging challenges in developing, integrating, and optimizing solar–wind hybrid energy systems.

This Special Issue seeks original research articles, review papers, and case studies covering a wide range of topics related to solar–wind hybrid energy systems, including, but not limited to, the following:

  1. Advanced modeling and simulation techniques for solar–wind hybrid systems.
  2. Optimization methods for hybrid system design, operation, and control.
  3. Integration strategies for maximizing energy production and grid integration.
  4. Technological innovations in solar PV, wind turbines, and energy storage systems for hybrid applications.
  5. Performance evaluation and case studies of deployed solar–wind hybrid projects.
  6. Economic and environmental assessments of hybrid energy systems.
  7. Policy, regulatory, and market challenges as well as opportunities for solar–wind hybrid deployment.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and contributions to this exciting Special Issue on "Recent Advances and New Challenges in Solar–Wind Hybrid Energy Systems".

Prof. Dr. Adrian Ilinca

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.
