The constant increase in computing power over the last four decades has driven and motivated the development of Computational Fluid Dynamics as a discipline, and a wide variety of engineering and scientific applications have benefitted from this. No disciplines have benefitted more from this than those involved in energy generation, such as combustion, fusion and areas of renewable energy involving fluid movement, such as tidal and wind energy generation. We are now able to accurately solve the basic equations of motion for fluids and plasmas, together with accurate modelling of turbulence, and other physical effects such as heat transfer, reaction, combustion and radiation. This can be used to probe the fundamental science behind energy generation and, since the calculations can be carried out on appropriately realistic geometries, also provide valuable inputs into the design process. Whilst the demise of Moore's Law has been discussed for many years now, at the moment there seems every likelihood that computing power will continue to increase over the next couple of decades at least, and thus that CFD will continue to play an increasing part in the development of these subjects.
This being so, we believe that this is a timely moment to put together a Special Issue of the internationally-renowned journal Energies, dedicated to showcasing recent and cutting edge developments in CFD applied in the areas of energy generation from conventional, fusion and renewable sources. This special issue will feature original research in these areas including but not limited to combustion, aeronautical and aerospace energy systems, heat exchangers, renewable energy sources, fusion technologies, and fundamental advances in CFD applied to these areas. The journal Energies is an SCIE journal with IF 2.262 (2016). Papers selected for this Special Issue will undergo rigorous peer review with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
We are writing to invite you to submit your original work to this Special Issue. We look forward to receiving your outstanding research.

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.
