We know that energy conversion is typically accompanied by an undesired, but unavoidable, generation of waste heat. In particular industrial processes are emitting waste heat into the surroundings to an extent that its recovery and utilization could considerably contribute to the global reduction of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission. However, to achieve this objective one has to pay attention not only to technical feasibility, but also to economic reasonability. Both depend on the quantity of available waste heat and its quality, as defined by the temperature.
Bearing the importance of this subject in mind, you are invited to contribute a research paper to this Special Issue on “Waste Heat Recovery—Strategy and Practice”. It is dedicated to the progress in developing strategies for waste heat recovery and their implementation into practice. The contributions may include, but are not limited to, devices such as heat exchangers, heat pumps, heat pipes and thermal energy storage as well as heat-to-power conversion concepts based, for example, on the organic Rankine cycle.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
