Energy systems are currently undergoing fundamental transformation processes all around the globe. These processes aim at establishing sustainable and climate-neutral solutions based on a variety of novel technologies. Renewable energies fluctuations, their distributed technical character, and vanishing marginal costs induce related fundamental change within the technical, economic, and societal areas of energy systems. This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in this very broad field of research, which includes energy systems analysis, energy infrastructures transformation, energy systems operation, and energy market design, as well as societal, political, and environmental dimensions. The main criteria for paper acceptance are relevance to the field; academic excellence; and originality and novelty of applications, methods, or fundamental findings.

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.
