Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The drive towards a low-carbon society has seen a significant increase in renewable energy share from the production to the consumer side in most countries. However, the increased share of renewable energy resources poses some challenges from the grid scale to the consumer scale in different sectors, mainly due to intermittent supply and energy demand mismatch. Thermal energy storage (TES) has significant potential to increase renewable energy share by tackling issues of supply and demand mismatch. TES systems can be installed across the scale from grid to consumer and in various end-use sectors, such as domestic, commercial, industrial, transport, agricultural, and power generation. TES systems can also be easily integrated with renewables such as solar, wind, ocean/waves, biogas/biomass and waste heat, etc., in various combinations. TES can be applied in heating, cooling, and power generation applications based on temperature range, storage medium, scale, and application. The primary challenges of TES-assisted devices are to obtain higher overall efficiency with better reliability, to reduce investment and running costs, and to lower environmental pollution. This Special Issue aims to address the latest advances in key technologies in the field of TES, integration, and utilization of such stored energy considering technological and metrological constraints. This Special Issue mainly covers original and unpublished research and review articles in areas including but not limited to: Sensible heat storage systems; latent heat storage systems; thermochemical heat storage systems; energy storage systems for heating and hot water in residential buildings; district heating and cooling systems; waste heat recovery systems; thermal energy storage (TES) systems for cogeneration, regeneration, solar energy, etc.; thermal energy storage (TES) systems for greenhouse heating and cooling; and modeling and optimization of the thermal energy system.

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.
