Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

The energy requirements of global society cannot be fulfilled with fuel sources since the demand is increasing and fuels reservoirs are running out. Energy harvesting from natural, renewable, sources has pushed further the development of energy storage devices for the development of smart grids, to compensate those periods in which energy cannot be naturally produced but it still necessary to be provided. The global scenario is reflected also in Italy. At present, rechargeable and flow batteries are the most used to store energy, as well as supercapacitors. The main application concerns consumer electronics, electric mobility and buffer for electrical networks and local microgrids. Fuel cell technology might be also exploited. According to market forecasts, prices of storage devices are falling while the expected storage capabilities will be increased in the future.

In this scenario, the development of new, green, energy storage solutions will lead to a greener future for our society.

This special issue concerning “Energy Storage Devices in Italy” will attempt to cover recent advances in the development of storage technologies, and their possible application in the energy scenario. That is, not focusing only to the edges of the Ragone plot that are interesting to be overcome, but also to acknowledge the advantages for niche application.
