A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2016).
Interests: Engineering Physics; Energy Conservation; Energy Storage; Phase Change Materials
The increasing number of environmental restrictions as well as the growing problems of the availability of energy resources urge the energetic sector not only to develop its technologies but to use them more rationally.
The ECOS conferences have a long tradition in fostering the key aspects and the scientific knowledge that are essential to take into account the evolution of all the aspects of energy and their impacts.
The 28th ECOS conference was held on 30 June–3 July 2015 in Pau, France. As in the previous years, distinguished presenters have participated in ECOS2015. The topics are as follows:
Fundamental & applied thermodynamics
Heat & mass transfer, fluid dynamics
Exergy analysis & Second Law analysis
Exergy and Raw Materials
Process integration, simulation & optimization of energy systems
Thermoeconomic analysis & optimization
Biomass / biofuels, biorefinery concepts, waste-to-energy
Nonbiomass renewable energy: solar, wind, water, others & hydropower
Fossil energy: coal, oil, natural gas
Chemical reactions & reaction engineering
Engines, furnaces & boilers, combustion/gasification
Cogeneration and waste energy recovery
Energy conversion, storage and transport
Buildings, urban & distributed energy systems
Refrigeration & air conditioning, Heat pumps
System operation, control, diagnostics & prognosis
Carbon dioxide capture, utilization & storage
Energy & water interactions, use of water resources
Industrial production, sustainability & use of resources
Energy policy & planning
Energy systems: social, environmental & sustainability issues
Life Cycle Assessment, industrial ecology, environmental impact of energy systems
Sustainability analysis of energy systems and components
Thank you very much!

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. 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 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.
