Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Solaris conference network provides a platform for meetings for professionals researching areas of solar radiation and daylighting to meet, solar energy conversion systems and efficient energy use in the built environment. It has a long tradition of organizing such meetings (Edinburgh 2003, Athens 2005, Delhi 2007, Hong Kong 2008, Brno 2011, Granada 2013, Maribor 2015 and London 2017). The conference aims to present the state-of-the-art in the solar energy and building energy research, to establish close contact amongst researchers for dissemination of their research outcomes and facilitate professional collaboration. For better dissemination of the technologies and methods related to solar energy and built environment, high-quality papers selected from the 9th edition of the international SOLARIS conference will be published in this Special Issue. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Solar radiation measurement and modelling;
  2. Daylighting modelling and measurement;
  3. Solar thermal energy conversion;
  4. Solar photovoltaic (PV) generation;
  5. Solar energy materials;
  6. Solar technologies for buildings;
  7. Energy storage;
  8. Near zero energy buildings and efficient energy use in the built environment;
  9. District heating/cooling, and
  10. Solar energy markets and political aspects of solar development.

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. Energies 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 1600 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.
