Renewable energy technologies play a significant role in meeting the global energy demand in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. The use of renewable energy technologies to provide electricity, heating and cooling, and transportation have increased significantly throughout the world. Although there is a growing demand for cost-effective renewable energy technologies, their potential varies with respect to available resources, climate, geographical location and storage possibilities. At present the key challenges related to the renewable energy technologies are high capital costs, underdeveloped technologies, and improvements in efficiency and energy saving potential on the demand side. Renewable energy technologies can be classified into two categories: emerging energy technology and mainstream energy technology. Mainstream energy technologies are well-established, whereas emerging technologies are still under development.
The increased integration of renewable energy systems into the electricity grid also creates new challenges due to their intermittent generation throughout the year. Energy storage systems are able to mitigate this problem by improving the performance of the power grid, balancing supply and demand and improving power quality and reliability. Thus, in the future, the advancement of storage technology will play a key role in the successful deployment of renewable energy technologies in the electricity grid.
The aim of this Special Issue is to capture recent breakthrough research contributions related to advanced emerging renewable technologies including new concepts and innovative approaches, challenges, design and development, system configurations and sizing, theoretical and experimental investigations, techno-economic analysis and environmental impact analysis .
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- New trends and technologies
- Solar photovoltaic technologies
- Solar thermal systems
- Concentrating solar technologies
- Nanotechnology and solar power
- Wind energy
- Wave, tidal, ocean energy

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. Electronics 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.
