Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are welcoming submissions to a new Special Issue on the subject of 'Emerging Trends and Innovations in Renewable Energy'. Climate change, most probably induced by anthropogenic emissions, represents a reality that has to be considered, and effective actions must be taken urgently. From this perspective, a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions represents an issue of increasing criticality. However, it is evident that the global demand for energy is proliferating, and that the energy sector produces almost three quarters of greenhouse gas emissions. Under these circumstances, it is quite clear that one of the most important directions in the sustainable path road towards a low-carbon future is a substantial increase in the percentage of green energy in the global energy mix. As has been established, renewable energy is abundant, and there remain vast areas on both land and offshore that can be considered for harvesting various kinds of energy. The technologies currently associated with renewable energy extraction are vital for achieving the expected targets in energy efficiency and environmental protection. For example, research into offshore wind has experienced outstanding success in recent decades and advances are also expected in other technologies. On the other hand, there remain important challenges related to the implementation of cost-effective technologies. From this perspective, the aim of this Special Issue is to contribute to the renewable energy agenda through enhanced scientific and multi-disciplinary works, aiming to improve knowledge, innovation and performance in harvesting renewable energy. We strongly encourage the submission of papers providing innovative technical developments, reviews, case studies, and analytics, as well as assessments and manuscripts targeting different disciplines; these must all be relevant to harvesting renewable energy and to the associated advances and challenges.

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. Inventions 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 1800 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.
