Special Issue "Wave Energy Technologies: A Sustainable Energy Source"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2017)
Prof. Dr. Yucheng Liu
This Special Issue will cover all topics related to development and application of wave energy technologies, which include but are not limited to: Design of wave energy converters, wave climate analysis, evaluation of potential location for imploring wave technology, experimental, theoretical and computational analysis of wave energy conversion systems, etc.
As concerns rising fossil fuel prices, energy security, climate change, and environmental pollution, sustainable energy can play a key role in producing local, clean, and inexhaustible energy to supply global growing demands for electricity. Among common renewable energy sources, the waves generated in gulfs and oceans reflect a huge body of untapped sustainable energy source, which have a large amount of energy potential that can be transformed into electricity. Currently, wave energy has led to promising technologies and commercial deployments.
This Special Issue attempts to present the newest and novel developments in the areas of wave energy technology, from which an international forum of scientific and technical achievements in design and assessment of wave energy conversion systems and other sustainable energy branches will be established.

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 papers will be 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. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
