Special Issue Description

Geothermal energy is the thermal energy found in the Earth’s crust that was produced during the planet’s formation and by the radioactive decay of minerals in an amount that is currently unknown but may be nearly equal. Some rocks melt under the intense pressure and heat of the Earth’s interior, while the solid mantle exhibits plastic behavior. As a result, since the mantle is lighter than the surrounding rock, some of it convects upward. Over 4000 °C (7200 °F) can be found at the core-mantle boundary. Since the Paleolithic era, geothermal heating has been utilized for space heating and bathing, respectively, utilizing water from hot springs. Electricity produced by geothermal energy is known as geothermal power. Dry steam power plants, flash steam power plants, and binary cycle power plants are among the technologies now in use. Geothermal technology draws heat from the earth’s subsurface, which can then be used for direct heating and cooling or transformed into power. However, medium- or high-temperature resources are required to produce power. These are typically found nearby tectonically active areas where hot water and/or steam can be reached short depths or be brought to the Earth’s surface. The key benefits of geothermal energy are its low cost and year-round, high-capacity factor operation. To access the geothermal resources, wells up to a mile deep or more are dug into underground reservoirs. These resources can be obtained through enhanced geothermal systems, which increase or develop geothermal resources through a procedure known as hydraulic stimulation, or from naturally occurring heat, rock, and water permeability. Whether they are upgraded or natural, these geothermal resources power turbines that are connected to electrical generators. There are three different types of geothermal power plants: dry steam, flash, and binary.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are 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 email address:[email protected] 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 Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
