This Special Issue contains a selection of the papers presented at the first World Energies Forum, a conference held in September 2020 in Rome. As a result of COVID travel and distancing restrictions, the organizers were advised to move to a virtual format.
Although this meant a substantial reduction (of about 50%) of the papers actually presented at the online conference, the response of our colleagues was positive and constructive. Thanks to the efforts of the MDPI administration for maintaining the correct connections, updating the conference technological endowment and just keeping to schedule, to the Scientific Committee for conducting the majority of the reviews, and to the organizers who had to adapt to the new critical situation, we had a sufficient amount of accepted manuscripts to make an excellent selection for this Special Issue.
At this time we do not have a list of accepted papers. This message is actually an invitation to the WEF participants to submit their papers for formal review. In general, the topics will reflect the trends of the conference program: analysis of energy demand, supply and use; environmental challenges; more efficient energy technology; and socio-economic and political implications in designing novel energy conversion scenarios.
