Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The strategic transition towards a low-carbon and resilient energy mix pushes Nations to set new targets, in order to increase the effective use of renewable and excess energy resources. This goal can be reached, among other measures, by enhancing the utilization of under exploited thermal energy resources, including combined heat and power facilities, industrial waste heat or biomass-fired boilers. The main barriers to their integration into buildings and heating networks are the production timing, the nominal power, the temperature level, and even the location, that rarely match the requirements of grids driven on-demand.

In this context, thermal energy storage is a promising solution to achieve a sustainable energy management, and to overcome the temporal and space mismatch between the heat production and its delivery.

This Special Issue "Advances in Heat Storage and Transformation Systems" deals with the conception of materials, systems and implementation issues connected to the development of efficient Heat Storage Systems.  Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Thermochemical heat storage materials
  • Solar heat storage
  • Waste heat recovery
  • Thermoelectric devices
  • Building applications
  • Industrial and large scale applications
  • Systems integration and optimization
  • Economic analysis

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.
