Fiber-reinforced composite materials exhibit unique physicochemical properties that cannot be obtained with individual components acting alone. Composite materials have been widely used for energy storage and conversion devices due to their lightweight, high specific stiffness, strength and multifunctional capacities. Applications for energy storage include flywheel rotor, multifunctional structural energy storage, thermal storage, high pressure tanks, and applications for energy generators include wind turbine, wave and tidal energy devices.
This current Special Issue focuses on the most recent advances in design, manufacturing processes and applications of energy storage and generators using fiber-reinforced composite materials.

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. 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 2000 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.
