Special Issue "Wave and Tidal Energy 2020"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: wave, tidal, and river energy: resource, performance, technology optimization, environmental impact; estuarine, and coastal hydrodynamics; sediment transport; integrated water resources management of marine and freshwater systems
Interests: coastal engineering; marine renewable energy; wave energy; oscillating water column wave energy converters; physical modeling; numerical modeling; applied artificial intelligence
Over the last few decades, marine renewable energy has emerged as one of the most powerful renewables with the potential to replace fossil fuel generation. Amongst the different marine energy resources, wave and tidal energy stand out because of their high-density, well-predictability, and low environmental impact. In addition, they present significant synergies with other marine renewables, as is the case for offshore wind energy, along with other coastal uses, thereby enhancing their economic viability. In this context, intensive research has led to the development of the wave and tidal industry, and, as a result, the exploitation of these forms of energy is approaching commercial viability.
This Special Issue deals with any research on the improvement of the understanding of wave and tidal energy exploitation. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to the following:
- Resource assessment;
- Performance analysis;
- Impact of farm operation;
- Coastal protection;
- Cost assessment;
- Synergies with other renewables and coastal uses;
- Array design;
- Farm deployment planning and integrated coastal zone management;
- Device optimization through numerical and physical modeling;
- PTO design;
- Grid connection;
- Installation and maintenance;
- Implications of climate change on energy exploitation

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.
