Energy and the environment are the two foremost areas of global crisis. The world’s energy demand is growing remarkably due to the strong growth of population and economy in developing countries, which is not only diminishing the reserve of fossil fuels but also affecting the environment and hampering sustainability. Carbon dioxide gas is generated by burning fossil fuels, which significantly contributes to the increase of average global temperatures, i.e., global warming. The world’s scientists are looking forward to achieving sustainable development, that is, to generating renewable power for social development without affecting the environment. It is more and more broadly recognized that by using renewable energy, we can move towards a safe and sound environment. This can help us to minimize the carbon footprint on the environment. However, further extensive multiphysics research in the field of renewable power generation, grid integration, and storage is needed to develop next-generation renewable energy technologies for the widespread application of renewable energy to ensure sustainability. This Special Issue will serve to collect recent advancements in renewable energy technologies with a special emphasis on the efficient and reliable conversion, transmission, storage, and use of renewable energy towards a sustainable world. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions and survey papers in these areas.

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. Sustainability 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 1900 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.
