Special Issue Information
Considering the problem of drinking water scarcity in the world and the problems of fossil energy such as its pollution and non-renewability, as well as the preference for dispersed freshwater production instead of concentrated production, the design of a desalination system that is integrated with renewable energies is critical these days. This type of design can also reduce the production of environmental pollutants due to reduced energy consumption in the production and transfer of freshwater. In this regard, we invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue that converges on renewable energy system flexibility in desalination systems concerning the water–energy nexus and water security.
We also encourage papers with innovation capability in domestic desalination systems integrated with renewable energy systems. As we know, these devices can also be used in residential buildings on the fringes of seas and even in rivers with non-potable freshwater. The energy of these systems can be powered by renewable energy such as solar, wind and geothermal energy that can produce freshwater, reduce pollutant production, reduce the cost of freshwater transfer to homes and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, the market for these types of domestic desalination systems consists of reverse osmosis (RO) systems.
This Special Issue also welcomes scholars to submit their research on renewable energy-driven systems in power plants using desalination systems that are accessible for freshwater production. Authors are welcome to submit their innovative ideas to address the design of desalination systems with renewable energy by analyzing the systems in terms of energy, exergy, economic and exergoeconomic subjects.

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. Water 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 2200 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.
