Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The mitigation of CO2 emissions is the key environmental challenge of the coming years. To face this challenge, fossil fuel consumption must be reduced in the transport medium by developing new technologies. Electrification is one of the main current actions to achieve this reduction in road transport, as EU Horizon 2030 targets foresee a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions per km. However, for general public acceptance, electrified vehicles require better performance and fast charging capabilities. Lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology is the energy storage of choice for these vehicles. This crucial element is still subject to further development to improve its performance, life, safety, and cost. The enhancement and optimization of LIBs require the use and development of reliable computational and experimental tools that allow the definition of optimal solutions in the early stages of design. These tools range from complex computational methodologies to reduced-order modeling techniques.

The definition of smart and integrated battery management systems that allow for meeting the performance needs of hybrid and pure-electric powertrains is also a challenging topic. The development of optimal control techniques that leverage the information provided by vehicle-to-environment communication to minimize vehicle energy consumption plays a crucial role in achieving solutions that meet the current decarbonized transport challenge. Therefore, the development of reliable numerical tools for energy management assessment of electrified powertrains is of the utmost importance in the pursuit of sustainable mobility.

We kindly invite you to submit your relevant work in the field of “Lithium-Ion Batteries: Recent Modeling and Design” for consideration for publication. This Special Issue represents an opportunity to gather the most recent advances in this field with application to sustainable transportation.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
