Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrochemical energy storage is a key element of systems in a wide range of sectors, such as electro-mobility, portable devices, or renewable energy. The energy storage systems (ESSs) considered here are batteries, supercapacitors, or hybrid components such as lithium-ion capacitors. The durability of ESSs determines the total cost of ownership and the environmental impacts (life cycle) in a large portion of these applications and thus their viability. Understanding the aging of ESSs is a key issue when it comes to optimizing their design and use according to each application. A better knowledge of ESS aging is also essential to improve their dependability (reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety). To achieve these goals, contributions from the scientific community are expected in a wide range of fields (physics, materials engineering, electrical engineering, mathematics, computer science, etc.).

Consequently, the purpose of this Special Issue is to promote research on ESS aging: from the study of aging mechanisms and factors, through the development of diagnostic and prognostic techniques, to the optimal design and management of ESSs in order to extend their lifespan.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative measurement techniques of ESS aging;
  • ESS aging modeling;
  • ESS state-of-health (SOH) estimation;
  • ESS prognostic and health management;
  • Balancing circuits with consideration of the lifetime of ESSs;
  • Aging-aware energy management;
  • Influence of aging on cost and environmental impact of ESSs;
  • Multi-objective optimization strategies for ESSs, including aging consideration;
  • Optimal sizing and design of ESSs with respect to their lifetime.

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. Batteries 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 2700 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.
