The main focus of this Special Issue is the significant challenge that industrial and residential sectors face in fulfilling the future requirements of decarbonization. Depending on the amount of energy consumption or the quality of the required heat, electrification as decarbonization technology might not be economically feasible for specific applications. Furthermore, there are a number of processes with mineral sources of CO2 which cannot be removed through electrification and whose only alternative for decarbonization is carbon capture. This creates significant synergies between carbon capture and power to gas technologies as a potentially feasible way to decarbonized industrial and residential sectors in the mid-term.
Power to gas technology produces electrified fuels (hydrogen from water electrolysis) while fixing carbon (required in the methanation stage of hydrogen). This energy vector can be seen as a long-term renewable electricity storage system or an opportunity to reduce the carbon intensity of the gas network. Additionally, the use of direct air carbon capture as a carbon source can lead to the production of carbon-neutral electrified fuels.
Thus, technical, environmental, and economic assessment of systems which integrates carbon capture and power to gas technologies are key tools to boost alternative paths for the future decarbonization of energy systems. The scope of the Special Issue is wide and not limited to the topics mentioned above. Any research topic contributing to the development of decarbonization of the energy system through carbon capture and utilization by means of power to gas technologies will be considered.

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.
