Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, the most significant global challenge facing humanity is energy. About 80% of the world’s energy consumption is from non-renewable sources. The depletion of fossil fuels and climate changes threaten our society and, consequently, renewable energy is of interest. Batteries, supercapacitors, and hydrogen storage systems have a great impact on efficient clean energy storage. The electrochemical energy storage possesses a number of desirable features, including, in many cases, environmentally benign operation, low maintenance, excellent efficiency and cycling stability. The need for improved power supplies for zero emission automobiles and emission free, renewable energy have sparked a considerable interest. We are certain that this Special Issue is diverse and addresses the current and the future developments of materials chemistry, electrochemistry and physical chemistry engaged in developing the next generation of storage devices (both aqueous and non-aqueous systems).

The range of manuscripts covering topics in this special issue will include energy storage performances for power uses such as electric vehicles, energy back-up applications, and renewable energy storage systems. Materials (including but not limited to carbonaceous materials, intercalation compounds, metal oxides, nitrides, molybdates, phosphates, polymers and other composites) for electrochemical double layer, hybrid, redox, symmetric and asymmetric capacitor systems, aqueous and non-aqueous batteries, hydrogen storage are also very welcome.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamental concepts, advanced systems and application of all types of storage systems including aqueous, non-aqueous, ionic liquids, Li-ion, Na-Ion and Mg-ion systems
  • Materials for energy storage devices ranging from oxides, ceramics, polymers, composites, and carbonaceous
  • Theoretical and experimental aspects of storage technologies
  • Techniques involving in bringing new insights on battery materials
  • Techno-economic assessment of the energy storage system

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.
