Special Issue "Energy Flows and Synergies between Energy Networks"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 January 2021) | Viewed by 3885
Future electricity generation, based on variable RES, will render current solutions for grid balancing and stability insufficient. Intermittent generation will require extensive electricity demand flexibility to alleviate the unpredictable grid stresses. Moreover, energy systems will necessitate the use of novel or optimized conversion and storage technologies (such as power to gas, power to heat, and virtual energy storage in buildings) in order to increase the synergies between electricity, heat/cooling, and gas networks to achieve the avoidance of RES generation curtailment. This Special Issue aims to encourage researchers to present and discuss some new ideas and solutions to explore, identify, evaluate, and quantitatively assess optimal solutions and strategies to integrate and operate conversion/storage systems on the distribution grid of several energy carriers. Finally, technical and economic evaluation along with policy strategy, incentives and standardization recommendations are highly welcome.

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 2200 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.
