Manuscript Topics
As you know, nowadays, geothermal energy is widely used for both electricity generation and direct applications such as greenhouse and space heating and geothermal heat pumps. The use of geothermal heat pumps and binary cycles for electric energy production may substantially increase the economic potential of geothermal energy, extending its use to countries that have not exploited this source so far, due to the lack of high enthalpy geothermal reservoirs.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect interesting and original studies focused on the field of low enthalpy geothermal energy and on the systems able to exploit it effectively and efficiently.

Studies demonstrating the importance of properly taking into account heat and mass transfer phenomena in modern geothermal energy systems based on the exploitation of low enthalpy sources, in order to increase the knowledge and to improve the conversion efficiency, design and operation techniques of these systems, are appreciated.

Contributions dealing with both numerical and experimental approach are appreciated and invited in the Special Issue.

Please, notice that the above description is not exhaustive. Therefore, works focused on other research areas in the field of low enthalpy geothermal energy systems, that are interesting for the Special Issue, are appreciated and invited.

Key Words
Geothermal energy, Heat transfer, Numerical modelling, Experiments, Energy systems, Low enthalpy, Renewable energy.
