In order to achieve zero emission targets, it is imperative that renewable energy sources play a critical role in future energy systems. However, most renewable energy resources are intermittent in nature and depend on weather conditions. Therefore, the use of a single renewable energy system often leads to excessive system size due to the randomness and the intermittent nature of some renewable energy resources. This phenomenon increases the system capital cost and hinders system reliability. Consequently, hybrid renewable energy systems integrated with renewable energy resources and/or other energy sources (nonrenewable energy sources) and energy storage can be used to address these challenging and unavoidable obstacles. Optimal designs of energy systems become vital in such circumstances, which is always a challenging process where a number of technoeconomic and environmental aspects need to be considered. In this context, this Special issue aims to present a collection of research work that resolves the major barriers around the design, modeling, optimization, and technoeconomic assessment of hybrid energy systems from a practical implementation perspective. Themes include but are not limited to:
- Case studies
- Design methods
- Economic assessment
- Energy storage
- Multiyear 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. 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.
