We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of "Offshore Renewable Energy: Ocean Waves, Tides and Offshore Wind”. The conversion of energy from ocean waves, tides and offshore wind into electricity could play an important role in globally meeting growing energy demands, diversify energy supply, reduce the dependency of carbon-based fuel sources, and save the world from climate change. Energy from the above mentioned ocean renewable sources is abundant and the amount of energy that can be generated using the existing technologies varies from site-to-site and from day-to-day, depending on location and weather conditions. The associated technologies for the energy conversion in marine environment are crucial to achieving critical global targets in energy efficiency. While considerable progress has been made in the past decade in harvesting marine energy, still great challenges exist in the design and implementation of cost effective technologies that could survive in the harsh marine environment. Researchers, engineers and scientists worldwide are working to develop cost effective marine energy technologies through their research, and enormous data and information are being released into the public domain. Through this Special Issue we hope to bring out additional wealth of information related to offshore marine energy technologies and environments to the readers of Energies.
Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Resource modeling of waves, tides and offshore wind;
- Technologies for the wave energy conversion;
- Technologies for the tidal energy conversion;
- Technologies for fixed and floating offshore wind energy conversion;
- Multi-energy platform concepts;
- Numerical and physical modelling of marine energy converters;
- Modelling of arrays of marine energy converters;
- Foundations, moorings and anchors for marine energy converters;
- Risk and reliability assessment of marine energy converters;
- Environmental impact of the marine energy farms;
- Economic assessments and LCOE projections for the marine energy.

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.
