Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018)

Exergy analysis which is based on the second law of thermodynamics is a potential tool to identify the sources, magnitude and the location of the irreversibility in energy systems. Exergy analysis can assist researchers, engineers and students for system design, analysis, assessment, optimization, and performance evaluation of various energy systems. It has been broadly used by different researchers around the world to:
(a) Address the impact of energy resources and its ties with environment,
(b) Design more efficient energy systems for better sustainability,
(c) Optimal design of energy systems for better performance,
There has been significant progress in the applications of exergy analysis in various energy systems ranging from its application in power plants (e.g., fossil fuel based power plants, renewable based power plants and even their integration), fuel cell systems and their integration, chemical processes (e.g., petrochemical plants, biomass gasification, and ammonia synthesis), Low exergy systems for high-performance buildings, distillation and desalination, waste heat recovery (WHR) and ORC cycles, advanced cooling and heating systems, energy storage systems, integrated energy systems (e.g., CHP, CCHP and multi-generation), various hydrogen production methods, exergetic based optimization, exergetic based lifecycle assessment and even entropy generation minimization in fluid flow. This special issue is essentially intended to the work availability and exergy analysis for a variety of energy systems and their applications in real world. We cordially invite researchers, students and engineers to submit their research scientific papers related to exergy, exergo-economic and exergo-environmental analyses of energy systems for the consideration in this special issue.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1500 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.
