Interests: development and characterization of materials and components for thermal energy storage and conversion; detailed models of heat and mass transfer in porous media; development of renewable heating and cooling solutions
Thermal energy storage (TES) is becoming a key technology for the implementation of renewable energies in buildings and in industry, and also in increasing energy efficiency of our systems. Moreover, TES will clearly contribute in the decrease of CO2 emissions and climate change mitigation. However, TES systems need a good material selection. Moreover, available materials for TES applications need to be improved and enhanced. This Special Issue aims at gathering the best papers on development, improvement and enhancement of materials for TES. Materials for sensible, latent, sorption and chemical TES will be compiled

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. Applied Sciences 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.
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.
