Due to the uncertainty linked to the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic and to what will be possible to organize in the period of the Conference, the Organizing Committee decided to continue with the organization of the Conference as an online event on distance platforms.

It is a sad decision, but it is not possible at the moment to predict what measures will be enforced at the end of October concerning the opening of Universities, meetings, and possible travel restrictions between countries and continents.

In any case, we do not want to waste your and our time for the preparation of the papers and the organization of the Conference.

All sessions will be organized as online meetings using Microsoft Teams and the access will be restricted to registered attendants.

The authors may decide at this point to continue the submission process and present their research at the conference.

All papers that will not be withdrawn, will continue the review process and will be published by EDP as previously organized and will be available as Open Access papers online.

All papers accepted for the Conference will be indexed in Scopus as previously announced.

The Conference fees will be reduced to a flat fee of 250 € + VAT since some of the described services (lunches, dinner, use of the venue, coffee breaks and gadgets) will not be offered, but all registered attendants will be able to publish a maximum of two open access papers, and will have access to all sessions using the online platform for the whole event.

Welcome to the Applied Energy Symposium: 100% Renewable: strategies, technologies and challenges for a fossil free future: 100%RES 2020.

In the last 10 years, the share of renewable sources in the energy mix of several countries is increased with a steady pace. This led to a revolution in conceiving energy conversion and diffusion in comparison to a fossil fuel-based system. Nowadays, thinking to a full-renewable-based system is no more just a dream. Nevertheless, the transition to this future implies several criticalities both from the technical and economic point of view. The 100RES conference will be the opportunity to discuss these topics, have an insight to new frontiers of engineering research, share new ideas and promote the cooperation between people operating in these fields.

100%RES 2020 is organized by the University of Pisa in cooperation with the international journal Applied Energy and the Applied Energy Innovation Institute (AEii). The event consists of four-day symposium and one-day for additional activities and site visiting.

100%RES 2020 will be held on October 29-30, 2020 in the city of Pisa, Italy. The conference will include keynotes and invited speeches, plenary sessions, oral presentations and poster sessions. Papers will be published online in a Scopus indexed platform. Selected best papers from the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of Applied Energy (
