Climate change is the key environmental problem of the coming decades. To face this challenge, fuel consumption must be reduced in the transport industry by developing new technologies. Electrification is one of the main current actions to achieve this reduction in road transport, as EU Horizon 2030 targets foresee a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions per km. A definition of integrated thermal systems that would allow meeting the temperature needs of hybrid and pure-electric powertrains is currently a challenging topic. Although hybrid aircraft prototypes exist, in air transport focus is put on improved geared turbofan engines with UHBRs (Ultra High By-pass Ratios). These new-generation engines require innovative thermal management strategies to cope with increased heat generation.
In these technologies, thermal management plays a crucial role for achieving solutions that meet the current decarbonized transport challenge. Therefore, the development of both reliable numerical methodologies and experimental techniques for thermal management assessment of propulsive systems is of the upmost importance in the pursuit of sustainable mobility.
We kindly invite you to submit your work related to the field of “Thermal management and experimental techniques for a sustainable mobility” for consideration for publication. This Special Issue represents an opportunity to gather the most recent advances in this field with application to both road and air transportation.

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.
