The sustainable use of energy in water trasfer and distribution is one of the key issues in hydraulic and mechanical research and is part of the world’s challenge for the reduction of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. Under the water–energy–food nexus, the attention of the water managers has been devoted to the development of innovative strategies for the sustainable use of water resources, for the reduction of water leakages, for the increase in efficiency of pumping systems, and for energy recovery. New technologies can be of help in implementing such strategies and in obtaining the prevented target system efficiency. In reference to water supply systems, small-scale hydropower generation can be beneficially coupled with the active control of pressure to effectively reduce water losses. This Special Issue is focused on the application of PAT and innovative technologies in water resources management in water distribution systems as well as other application fields such as irrigation, manufactoring, mining, oil and gas, etc., representing a convergence point to share research and experiences on models, technologies, and technical approaches.

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. Water 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 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.
