We are inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Technologies”. The International Energy Agency predicts 15,000 TWh of renewables-based electricity generation by 2040. This amounts to 40% of the world’s electricity generation (IEA World Energy Outlook 2018). To enable this high level of generation, combined with the global reduction in fossil fuel-based transportation fuels, electrochemical energy conversion and storage technologies are critical. Although there is a paramount need for new technologies, the alternative use and end-of-life considerations of existing technologies during the transition to alternative emerging technologies is also a vital factor for society.
This Special Issue will focus on new and emerging technologies for the conversion and storage of energy, novel or alternative applications of existing technologies, life-cycle, end-of-life considerations, as well as technoeconomic analysis of energy storage technologies. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:
New energy storage technologies;
New materials for energy storage;
Second life applications of existing technologies;
Alternative applications of existing technologies;
Dr. Christopher Munnings
Dr. Anand Bhatt
Dr. Noel Duffy
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 1800 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.
