Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to environmental and geopolitical considerations, there has been a revived effort to reduce reliance on fossil fuels for both electricity generation and transportation. The integration of renewable sources in the energy system is necessary to achieve the targets on greenhouse gas emissions set by the regulation. For this purpose, energy storage systems and energy vectors, such as batteries and hydrogen, became key technologies in this context. At the same time, in order to enable a reduction in emissions within the transport sector, the use of batteries and fuel cells represents the main solution to power zero-emissions vehicles.

Considering the above, we kindly invite experts in the field of “Current Advances in Fuel Cells and Batteries” to share with the scientific community their latest results in the form of original research papers and review papers. This Special Issue aims to provide an opportunity to gather the most recent advances in this field.

The main topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Laboratory implementation, tests, and validation methodologies of batteries and fuel cells;
  • Diagnosis and prognosis of batteries and fuel cells;
  • Battery and fuel cell degradation (state-of-health assessment, aging);
  • Modeling of fuel cells and batteries;
  • Analysis of fuel cell and battery performance using CFD simulation;
  • Study of new technologies for batteries and fuel cells;
  • Safety issues related to the use of fuel cells and batteries;
  • Battery and fuel cell thermal management studies;

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. Energies 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 2600 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.
