This Special Issue is the continuation of the previous Special Issue “Li-ion Batteries and Energy Storage Devices” in 2013. In this Special Issue, we extend the scope to all electrochemical energy storage systems, including batteries, electrochemical capacitors, and their combinations. Batteries cover all types of primary or secondary batteries, metal-air batteries, and redox flow batteries, and electrochemical capacitors include double-layer capacitors and pseudocapacitors. This Special Issue addresses the current and future advancement in all aspects of the science, technology, engineering and applications of electrochemical energy storage systems.
We invite research and review articles on a wide range of subjects within materials science and engineering, nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, electrochemistry. Manuscripts on the testing methods, simulations, electric or thermal management of single cells or battery packs as well as on the applications and recycling technologies of electrochemical energy storage devices are also in the scope of this Special Issue.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
