Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Given the challenges of global climate change and environmental pollution, the shift toward a low-carbon society is now imperative. Batteries, as the primary energy storage solution for electrified transportation systems and renewable energy systems, play a pivotal role in advancing decarbonization efforts. However, as batteries undergo repetitive charging and discharging cycles, their electrochemical performance and energy storage capacity gradually degrade. Exploring the intricate dynamics of battery charging and discharging behaviors holds immense potential in enhancing battery health management and facilitating battery reliability. Furthermore, such exploration provides invaluable insights into the formulation of optimal charging strategies and the provision of user guidance for the efficient utilization of battery resources.

This Special Issue aims to publish the latest research achievements in the analysis, design, and optimization of battery systems in terms of various charging and discharging characteristics. The potential topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Battery degradation mechanism analysis and modeling;
  • Battery state-of-charge (SOC) and state-of-health (SOH) estimation;
  • Battery end-of-life or remaining useful life (RUL) prediction;
  • Battery charging and discharging control;
  • Optimal charging strategies;
  • Fast-charging optimization;
  • Battery fault prognosis and diagnosis.

We invite researchers and industry experts to contribute their original research to this Special Issue, ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the aforementioned topics and providing valuable insights into the development of battery systems.

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.
