Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the world transitions towards cleaner energy, energy storage plays a crucial role in providing flexibility, stabilising intermittent generation resources, improving grid stability, and alleviating transmission congestion. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to compile innovative research on challenges and opportunities in energy storage. We welcome papers focusing on market mechanisms, regulation, strategic behaviour, and the operation of storage systems including batteries, hydrogen, hydro reservoirs, and pumped storage, among other technologies. Authors are encouraged to explore market integration and operational strategies for both large-scale and distributed storage systems, either in combination with non-dispatchable generation or as stand-alone solutions, considering the social and economic aspects involved. Additionally, we are interested in research that assesses how energy storage can reduce carbon emissions and drive wide-spread electrification, contributing to a more sustainable future.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sustainability 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 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.
