Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editors are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Onboard Energy Storage and Conversion Solutions for Green Mobility”. For future clean road vehicles and aviation (including urban air mobility), hydrogen-electric powertrains are gradually gaining their popularity. These powertrains require fuel cells, e.g., PEM, and their systems of higher (1) specific power; (2) specific energy; (3) efficiency and (4) reliability.

This Special Issue will deal with novel design, optimization and operation techniques for these onboard fuel cells and systems for green mobility, including onboard energy storage solutions as well. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  1. Thermofluids process integration:
  • Novel BoP (balance of plant) components and/or operational solutions for, e.g., species precision delivery; improved system dynamics; handling of off-design operations including emergencies; failure proof;
  • Hybridization and system management;
  • Reliability enhancing through system design and operation;
  1. Thermofluids structure design, which topics could possibly be:
  • Mesco-scopic strucutral designs and charactertizations;
  1. Hydrogen storage system design and operation.

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.
