Modern energy conversion systems play a key role in the transition in greener, smarter, and more sustainable development. In the contex of this scope recent advances in power electronics have contributed to the optimization of energy saving in all main industrial and social sectors (smart manufacturing, transportations, biomedicine & e-health etc.). The aim of the present Special Issue is to attract original, high-quality papers and review articles proposing advances in power electronics for energy saving, including materials, methods, tools and applications in industrial processes, agricultural processes, transportations, residential systems, smart city concept etc. Major topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New materials and methods for energy saving
- Efficient public transportation systems; all-electric vehicles, aircrafts, trains, and ships, electric vehicle charging strategies and techniques, vehicle-to-grid (V2G)
- (Smart) Microgrids: grid-tied / standalone solutions and energy management
- Efficient public transportation systems: all-electric vehicles, aircrafts, trains, and ships, electric vehicle charging strategies and techniques, and vehicle-to-grid (V2G)
- Energy harvesting for smart applications and wireless power transfer for Distributed Energy Sources
- Dynamic features of power electonics interfaced energy saving applications
- Flexible and wide-band performance control schemes for energy saving applications
- Power electronic concepts for thermoelectric applications and heat recovery systems
- Power electronic systems for smart buildings and NZEBs
- Renewable energy conversion systems: design, modelling, control and integration to modern power systems
- Energy storage: batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, flywheels, new trends and concepts

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.
