Thermal Energy Storage for Concentrated Solar Thermal Applications
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2022) | Viewed by 2458
Interests: heat transfer; energy storage; desalination
A cost-effective thermal energy storage technology is critical to increase the utilization of intermittent renewable energy sources such as concentrated solar thermal and make it dispatchable for power generation and industrial process heat applications. Thermal storage systems adopt different energy storage modes, including well-studied sensible and latent energy storage, as well as thermochemical storage, which is in a relatively nascent stage. A successful development of a thermal storage system involves scientific and technological developments in several research areas, including materials characterization, thermodynamics, heat transfer study, system demonstration, and technoeconomic analysis.
In this Special Issue, we cordially invite you to submit reviews, perspectives, and original articles related to aforementioned topics that will broaden our understanding of the scientific principles governing the dynamic performance of thermal storage systems for concentrated solar–thermal applications. With the inclusion of a wide range of topics related to thermal storage technology development, this Special Issue will serve as a guide for the scientific and industrial community.

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
