We invite you to make submissions to this Special Issue of Processes focused on “Modeling, Control, and Optimization of Multi-Generation and Hybrid Energy Systems”. Reliable and sustainable energy remains a major challenge today with no single solution. By combining energy technologies and resources in innovative ways, process synergies can be created and leveraged in ways that maximize energy efficiency, minimize total cost, minimize environmental impact, etc. This Special Issue seeks novel research contributions in, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Simulation, control, and/or optimization of complex energy systems
- Detailed analysis of novel energy system configurations
- Combined heat and power systems
- Multi-generation systems where multiple useful products are produced simultaneously (e.g., power and fresh water, power and chemicals, heat and cooling)
- Renewable energy
- Simulation and analysis of systems incorporating multiple energy types as inputs (e.g., solar and natural gas, wind and nuclear, etc.)
- Systems and optimization/control techniques that leverage energy storage in novel ways
We welcome and look forward to your submissions.

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. Processes 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 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.
