Special Issue in Membranes: Hydrogen Generation from Renewable Sources via Membrane Reactor Technology
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate to the Special Issue “Environmental Aspects and Impacts of Hydrogen Technologies”. There is a revolution taking place in the energy sector, where hydrogen is now considered a pivotal clean energy carrier for the future, playing a key role in enabling this energy transition. The current post-pandemic policies tend to foster the much-needed energy transition towards an economic development decoupled from fossil fuels. A future hydrogen-based economy will require H2 production through different technological pathways, using a wide range of feedstocks and energy sources. Besides production, along the entire supply chain hydrogen needs to be stored, distributed, and finally used.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to deepen the understanding of the potential economic, social and environmental impacts of the most recent advancements in the field of hydrogen technologies and their applications, involving hydrogen production, storage, distribution, and final usage.
Articles including recent analyses on the social, environmental and economic aspects of novel and emerging technologies, and future trends in the field of sustainable hydrogen production, storage, and utilization as an energy resource, are highly encouraged. The submission of articles reporting specific applications and case studies, which demonstrate or analyze the sustainability of hydrogen technologies, will be much appreciated. The analysis of specific case studies may focus on different stages or the entire H2 supply chain.
We look forward to considering your submissions.

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.
