Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In recent years, the marine energy industry has experienced an increasing level of interest and activity across the range of technology readiness levels, from blue skies research to the commercialization of marine energy conversion technologies; from the development of new concepts to sea tests of devices, and in some cases even array deployments. Energies is delighted to announce a timely Special Issue on Marine Energy, aiming to capture the latest advances in marine energy research and development, which will accelerate the uptake of new technologies and the expansion of the industry on a global scale. The issue covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- wave and tidal resource modelling, characterization and assessment;
- resource-to-wire modelling of wave and tidal energy conversion;
- design and assessment of novel wave and tidal energy converter components and systems;
- hydrodynamic and electrical interaction among converters within wave and tidal arrays;
- control and power system integration of wave and tidal arrays;
- hybrid wave, tidal and offshore wind arrays;
- system and component reliability;
- operational and logistics aspects of marine energy conversion systems;
- policy, regulatory and commercial practices.
We invite papers on blue skies research as well as reports and case studies illustrating current, state-of-the-art industrial applications. As the Guest Editor of this Energies Special Issue on Marine Energy, I am delighted to extend this invitation to you and I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr Aristides E. Kiprakis
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.
