Redox flow battery (RFB) is one of the most promising technologies for grid-scale stationary energy storage, due to its design flexibility in decoupling power and energy, long life-time, high safety, and low environmental impact. In recent years, this technology has received significant attention and successfully been scaled up to MW scale. To ensure effective market penetration, new chemistries based on low-cost materials or with improved energy densities have recently been introduced in aqueous and non-aqueous electrolytes. This Special Issue will focus on the latest advances and prospects of current and future flow battery systems, covering key topics in new chemistries, functional materials, engineering, cost/market and computational modelling.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Redox couples/battery chemistries;
- Functional materials (e.g., electrodes and membranes);
- Engineering (e.g., scale-up, new cell structures/designs);
- Mass transport phenomena;
- Operations (diagnostics and management);
- Cost and market (e.g., life-cycle assessments);
- Modelling and simulations (e.g., multi-physics models, first-principles calculations).

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, 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 Editorial Office 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 single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Batteries is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
