Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increasing energy requirements of upcoming systems and associated concerns regarding the depletion of fossil fuels and their environmental-related effects on the planet, the deployment of renewable energy sources such as wind, wave, and solar power will play a key role in our future energy demands. However, efficient exploitation of renewable energy sources characterized by random fluctuations is only possible when a combination of various energy storage devices with ability to store and release energy with different time-scales is deployed.

Apart from batteries, accumulators, and fuel cells that are only effective for the storage and delivery of energy at slow rates over a long period of time, electrochemical capacitors have become imperative in the response to the short term fluctuations in energy outputs when a surge of energy in a short time is required or released. Therefore, they are the subject of great interest to the scientific community dealing with aspects of energy storage improvement and management.

In order to meet all the requirements to improve the quality of the energy supply in high energy and power applications, the development of supercapacitors with properties such as rapid charge/discharge, exceptionally high capacitance retention and long cycle life, and high energy density is essential to complement other storage devices when a wide spectrum of energy and power is required.

Researchers are now invited to submit manuscripts for the Special Issue ‘High Energy Electrochemical Capacitors” that will stimulate the development of technology for a wide range of energy and power supplies.

We are particularly interested in articles and reviews that explore aspects of novel electrode materials, electrolytes, and binders for electrochemical capacitors and their energy storage mechanisms and also processes and implementations in which the currently existing challenges associated with their synthesis and production are addressed. Moreover, performance analysis of the device and its integration with other storage technologies to improve the overall performance of energy systems are also of special interest.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Synthesis, characterization, and properties of the electrode materials for electric double-layer capacitors, pseudocapacitors, and hybrid capacitors.
  • Novel and benign electrolytes for electrochemical capacitors
  • Understanding of the underlying mechanisms of energy storage in electrochemical capacitors
  • Performance analysis of electrochemical capacitors under different conditions
