This issue is devoted to energy systems and environmental issues in aviation. As is known, energy systems have an important role in sustainable development and global warming. In addition to that, aviation applications have a considerable impact on global warming. This special issue will cover sustainable applications in aviation, environmental impact, thermodynamic applications in aviation, green airports, and design and optimisation in aviation.

The issue will carry revised and selected papers presented at the International Conference on Clean Energy 2014 and International Conference on Energy 2014, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in this event to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sustainable aviation; green aircraft and airlines
  • Environmental impacts: emissions/noise, global warming/climate change
  • Renewable energy sources; alternative/green aviation fuels
  • Combustion instabilities, innovative combustion technologies
  • Energy, exergy, performance analysis; flight and fluid mechanics
  • Air conditioning and refrigeration applications of aircrafts
