Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, it is well known that the reduction of energy consumption is the key to reducing the carbon emitting into the atmosphere. However, the growth of the built environment and the increase in life quality standard are leading to an increase energy demand. Therefore, energy policies require increasingly efficient solutions to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and at the same time guarantee high thermal comfort. The performance of HVAC systems (either active or passive) integrated into buildings is thus fundamental to achieving this goal.

The development and the application of new materials able to support the development of efficient energy systems can lead to reducing both the energy demand and the energy consumption of buildings.

Research and reviews articles are therefore invited to be submitted to this Special Issue, so as to contribute to this research field with studies related to:

  • The development and application of advanced materials integrated into active HVAC systems (i.e., heat transfer fluids);
  • The development and application of advanced materials integrated into active HVAC components (i.e., working fluids, coatings, insulation);
  • The development and application of advanced materials for passive HVAC and energy demand reduction (i.e., building envelope, construction materials);
  • The development and application of advanced materials for energy storage systems (both electrical and thermal);
  • Life cycle assessment, techno-economic analysis, thermodynamic and experimental studies of energy systems for building applications (both passive and active) including new advanced materials.

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.
