Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hydrogen is a clean energy carrier. It can be produced from any primary energy sources by electrolyzers and used to generate electricity by fuel cells, which are very efficient energy conversion devices. The combined use of hydrogen and electricity represents one of the most promising ways to achieve sustainable energy systems in the future due to their very low to zero carbon emissions, no emissions of harmful ambient, low noise, high efficiency, high power quality, and flexibility in the energy management of electric grids. Hydrogen energy systems can be used in many electric applications, such as portable appliances (mobile phones, laptops, etc.), electric power supplies for domestic, commercial and industrial sectors, microgrids with renewable energy sources, electric transport (electric vehicles, trains, tramways), grid-scale electric power plants, and grid-scale energy storage systems.

This Special Issue includes, but is not limited, to the following topics:

  • Hydrogen fuel cells for portable applications;
  • Hydrogen-based electric power supplies for domestic, commercial and industrial sectors;
  • Hydrogen systems in isolated or grid-connected microgrids;
  • Hydrogen-based hybrid electric energy systems;
  • Hydrogen-powered electric transport (e.g. electric vehicles, trains, tramways);
  • Grid-scale fuel cell-based electric power plants;
  • Grid-scale hydrogen-based electrical energy storage systems;
  • Power electronics for hydrogen electric applications;
  • Advanced control techniques for hydrogen electric applications;
  • State-of-the-art reviews on hydrogen electric applications.

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 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 1400 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.
