Special Issue Information
We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of the Inventions on the subject area "Marine renewable energy: an important resource towards a low carbon future" and related topics. Marine renewable energy (MRE) sources are abundant, but the amount of energy that can be extracted using the existent technologies varies from site-to-site and day-to-day, depending on the location and on the weather conditions. As we all know, a significant reduction of the CO2 emissions represents a problem of increasing importance. In this context, the technologies currently associated with the extraction of the marine renewable energy are very relevant in achieving the expected targets in terms of energy efficiency and environmental protection. Although in the last years, significant advances have been noticed in relationship with the MRE extraction, there are still important steps to be performed for the implementation of cost-effective technologies that could survive in the marine environment. From this perspective, this Special Issue seeks to contribute to the renewable energy agenda through enhanced scientific and multi-disciplinary works, aiming to improve knowledge and performance in extracting marine renewable energy. From this perspective, we encourage works targeting innovative technical developments, reviews, case studies, and analytics, as well as assessments and manuscripts related to different disciplines, which are relevant to harvesting marine renewable energy and related topics.

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 1500 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.
