South Korea was the world’s ninth-largest energy consuming country in 2015 and heavily depends on imports for its fossil fuel (liquefied natural gas, coal, and crude oil) usage. Because of recent public awareness regarding the polluted air issue, which produces huge external costs related to public health, pressure to reduce its dependency on fossil fuels is increasing. Also, the Fukushima nuclear disaster made the government support the nuclear phase-out policy. Thus, more developments of various renewable energies (PV, wind, geothermal, hydro, biomass, fuel cell, etc.) are currently required, and this effort also helped the country’s pledge at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference to cut its carbon dioxide emission by 37% below the business-as-usual (BAU) level by 2030.
The objective of this Special Issue is to gather all of the state-of-the-art research and practical applications of various renewable energies held in South Korea. We expect keen interest from peer researchers and practical engineers in this field.

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 2000 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.
