It has now been more than 30 years since the first patent on the Vanadium Redox Flow Battery (VFB) was granted to our group at University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) and we are thrilled to see the increasing interest that has led to the extensive research, development, field trials and now commercial production of the VFB around the world. VFB can now be regarded as a mature energy storage technology, but, as with all mature technologies, ongoing research is helping to improve performance and reduce cost for broader implementation in a range of energy storage applications. In this first Special Issue dedicated to the Vanadium Redox Flow Battery, we hope to collect contributions from all the research groups and companies currently engaged in VFB research, development and manufacture in order to describe the current state-of-the-art across the full range of flow battery topics to serve as an important reference to the energy storage industry and to flow battery researchers engaged in this rapidly growing field.

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 papers will be 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 quarterly 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 1400 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.
