from the covering of heating and cooling demands. A large part of the energy consumption of the industry is also related to heating and cooling production. In order to meet international objectives in terms of CO2 emissions reduction, a great deal of effort should be devoted to improving the energy efficiency of heating and cooling production, storage, distribution, and emission systems. This Special Issue will highlight recent advances in the development of such systems. Numerical and experimental contributions addressing the following topics (non exhaustive) are welcome: vapor compression heat pumps/chillers, heat driven heat pumps (absorption, adsorption, ejector cycles, etc.), geothermal heat pumps, waste heat recovery and reversible heat pumps, biofuel fired boilers, thermal energy storages, solar heating and cooling, Combined Heat and Power (CHP), district heating networks, radiant emitters, and Temperature and Humidity Independent Control (THIC).

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 bimonthly 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.
