The widespread adoption of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power requires safe and efficient large-scale energy storage to smooth out their intermittency. Redox flow batteries (RFBs) represent one of the most promising technologies for this application because of their high safety, flexible design, easy scalability, high energy efficiency, and long lifetime. Over the past few decades, RFBs have witnessed significant development: not only has the performance of conventional RFBs improved considerably, but also a wide range of new battery chemistries/concepts have been proposed. This Special Issue will cover recent advances and perspectives in this particularly attractive technology.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Electrode design;
- Membrane design;
- Electrolyte formulation;
- New redox couples;
- Cell structural design and optimization;
- Modeling and simulation;
- Technoeconomic analysis.

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.
