Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In recent decades, there has been an important increase in the use of renewable energy sources aiming at reducing the greenhouse gas emissions. In this vein, many countries are still implementing new actions to further reduce these emissions, such as the progressive replacement of combustion-engine vehicles by electric vehicles, the transition to fully renewable electric energy systems, and the development of new technologies that allow storinf energy in large quantities. All these actions will change the way that electric energy systems are operated, both from a technical and a economical point of view. Thus, new approaches are needed for the planning and economics of future electric energy systems.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Transmission expansion planning to enable a high penetration of electric vehicles and renewable energies;
- Generation expansion planning in fully renewable electric energy systems;
- Generation and tranmission expansion planning in power systems considering storage facilities;
- New methods to account for uncertainties in the planning and economics of electric energy systems.

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.
