Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The world is facing the crisis of climate change associated with the use of fossil fuels and related CO2 and greenhouse gases emissions. The global population needs to fulfill their energy needs with alternative and sustainable green and renewable energy conversion and storage technologies with no detrimental effects on the environment.

Among the renewable and sustainable sources of energy, the ones most frequently considered are solar, wind, tidal and hydropower. However, due to the intermittent nature of these energy sources, these technologies are only operative for some part of the day. Therefore, alternatives to the use of these renewable sources of energy are necessary. Electrochemical energy storage and conversion methods can play a key role in a more sustainable landscape. They can convert, store and transport energy when other alternative renewable sources are inefficient. Different energy conversion and storage methods include fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries, and supercapacitors.

This Special Issue, titled “Advances in Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Technologies”, focuses on the latest research and developments in this area. We are pleased to invite you to submit articles within the scope of physical chemistry, materials science and chemical engineering, aimed at developing new electrocatalysts and devices for electrochemical energy storage and Conversion. Original research and review articles are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Electrocatalysis;
  • Interfacial Electrochemistry;
  • Physical Methods for the Study of Electrode Surfaces and Interfaces;
  • Computational Simulations in Electrochemistry;
  • Electrochemical Engineering;
  • Electrochemical Materials Science;
  • Fuel Cells;
  • Electrolyzers;
  • Batteries;
  • Supercapacitors;
  • Flow Batteries;
  • Solar Cells and Solar Electrolyzers.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
