With the global energy demand on the rise, the utilisation of unconventional energy sources and the application of diverse energy systems continue to be the focal points of scientific and industrial research worldwide. The organic Rankine cycle is a promising technology, proven to be an effective tool for distributed electricity generation and harnessing waste heat energy. Standalone systems are commonly powered by biomass and successfully paired with concentrated solar power (CSP) and steam Rankine systems. On-board applications are being developed, with recent advances concentrating on waste heat recovery from exhaust gas heat, including internal combustion engines, heavy and light duty vehicles, and marine applications. Significant attention is being paid to the design and operation of ORC systems and their components, primarily expanders, working fluid selection, as well as optimization and control strategies.

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 1800 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.
