Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the main drivers for technological development and the innovation of future energy systems across sectors and scales is the need to make them smarter, greener and more energy-efficient. To meet this challenge, the deployment of mechatronic technologies into energy systems is essential. Various mechatronic energy systems have gained increasing attention from both industrial and academic organisations in recent years, for instance: autonomous and/or electric transportation systems, energy storage systems, renewable energy systems, grids and infrastructures.

The aim of this Special Issue of Energies is to explore emerging mechatronic technologies for future energy systems, from fundamental research to practical applications that will crosscut multidisciplinary engineering domains: system design, modelling, control, rapid prototyping, fabrication, technical/non-technical management, packaging, integration, and safety. In addition, it is also necessary to examine the possible consequences of mechatronic energy systems and their integration into our society, economy, and environment. Therefore, we cordially invite all interested researchers to submit their original research and/or review articles to this Special Issue with a particular (though not exclusive) focus on:

  • Hybrid/electric vehicles and machines across sectors;
  • Renewable energy and energy storage technologies;
  • Smart grids and infrastructures;
  • Innovative energy/power estimation, distribution, conversion and management;
  • Advanced modelling, simulation, control and optimisation of energy systems;
  • Intelligent communication and integration technologies for energy systems;
  • Advanced verification and rapid prototyping of energy systems;
  • Telematics, Big Data mining and machine learning for smart energy systems;
  • Advanced fault diagnosis, resilient control and safety management of energy systems;
  • Advanced technologies for recycling energy systems and life-cycle cost analysis.

In addition to all external submissions, this Special Issue will choose selections from the extended and revised, full-length, high-quality papers from the 24th International Conference on Mechatronics Technology (www.icmt2021.org). The International Conference on Mechatronics Technology is recognised as one of the most famous and international conference series, gathering contributions from the broad research community to present and discuss breakthroughs and the lasted developments in mechatronics.

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.
