While your submission is of interest to Applied Energy, your manuscript does not meet the following criteria, we are returning the manuscript to you before the review:
*Lack of scientific originality/novelty:
The novelty/originality shall be justified by highlighting that the manuscript contains sufficient contributions to the new body of knowledge. The knowledge gap needs to be clearly addressed in Introduction.
*Literature survey is not sufficient to present the most updated R&D status for further justification of the originality of the manuscript. You should carry out a thorough literature survey of papers published in a range of top energy journals in the last three/four years so as to fully appreciate the latest findings and key challenges relating to the topic addressed in your manuscript and to allow you to more clearly present your contributions to the pool of existing knowledge. In the case the subject is really novel and few or no specific references are found, the novelty of the subject, the methodology used and the similarity to other older or newer subjects should be explicitly addressed.
At this time, your submission will be rejected from Applied Energy but please feel free to re-submit to the journal once the aforementioned comments have been addressed.
