Interests: photovoltaic-based systems with hydrogen storage; photovoltaic-electrolyzer-gas turbine distributed energy systems; solid oxide fuel cell-gas turbine-steam turbine cogeneration; fuel cell micro-combined-heat-and-power total energy systems; proton exchange membrane fuel cell-absorption chiller power-and-cooling; steam methane reforming for hydrogen generation; analysis of synergies and development of efficient operational strategies; thermoeconomic modeling; exergy analysis
The interest in novel fuel cell systems is continuously increasing in the world. With the growing global energy demand and the need to reduce carbon emissions, efficient energy conversion is increasing in many areas. Fuel cell systems provide energy solutions in the residential, industrial, and commercial sectors, with stationary, vehicular, and mobile applications. Although fuel cell-based systems are not limited by the type of fuel, they have been considered as a method of converting green electricity from renewable energy sources to hydrogen, which can be stored and used from fuel cells, when electricity generation is unavailable from RES.
This Special Issue will focus on the design, modeling, and optimization of novel fuel cell systems. Papers are invited in all different areas of fuel cell technology, provided they are system-level studies. The submitted work may involve research areas such as thermodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, electrochemistry, and economic and environmental aspects. Both theoretical and experimental work, and, especially, the combination of these, are welcome. Recently, the potential of combining renewable energy sources and fuel cell technology has been raised, and therefore papers addressing such topics are encouraged.
Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Innovative and alternative approaches to the design and modeling of fuel cell systems
- Studies of fuel cell-based systems related to economic and/or environmental aspects
- Photovoltaic or wind turbine-fuel cell hybrid energy systems
- Flexi-fuel stationary SOFC-based systems
- Methanol-fueled PEMFC systems for onboard applications
- Green marine propulsion power plants and hybridization options with conventional propulsion
- Combination of fuel cell technology with refrigeration cycles
- Alternative methods of electrolysis applied at the system level
- System analysis for solar-driven CO2 electrolysis
- Hydrogen production using solid oxide electrolysis integrated with renewable heat and power
- Application of novel control strategies in fuel cell systems

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 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.
