Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The impact of human aviation activities on the environment is becoming more and more concerning. Passenger aircraft currently account for 2% of the world's CO2 emissions while consuming 13% of fossil fuel burn within the transportation sector. By the 2050s, the proportion of air travel contributing to climate change is forecast to reach 6-10%. Prioritizing environmental protection, green aviation refers to the use of new fuels such as bio-aviation oil in aircraft, the improvement of intelligent manufacturing processes of high-performance composite materials, the adoption of harmless or low-harm new technologies, together with the development and use of high-efficiency, low-pollution or pollution-free propulsion systems.
This Special Issue will present research activities focused on the innovation of energy technologies and emission reduction technologies for multi-electric/all-electric aircraft, including electrical machines, power electronics, composite materials, propulsion architectures, as well as advanced manufacturing.

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.
