To offer a response to the global challenge of greenhouse gas emission reduction, various researchers and companies are focusing their studies on CO2 capture and usage in different processes. A possible carbon dioxide re-utilization process may be its hydrogenation to produce methane to be injected into the natural gas grid or used as LPG for other industrial processes. The power to gas concept is based on the transformation of electrical energy into a gas fuel and involves the use of surplus power from renewable sources to split water into hydrogen and oxygen by an electrolyzer. Hydrogen can be then used for different purposes, such as the reduction of carbon dioxide to methane. The combination of CCU and P2G technologies in the same industrial plant results in a very interesting possibility to simultaneously reduce greenhouse emissions and utilize power surplus from renewable sources to produce a gas that can be immediately used or transported by the consolidated infrastructure present in most industrialized countries.
In this Special Issue, the interested researchers are invited to submit original research papers, as well as review articles, on any of the topics related to P2G, CCU, and their combination in the same plant, focusing on the optimization of the plant for efficiency improvement, considering classical technical and economical analysis or/and exergetic and economic analysis. Papers related to innovations in the optimization of the methanation process (catalysis and reactor configurations) are particularly welcome.

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.
