Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the very fast-growing markets of electrical vehicles (EVs), it is absolutely necessary to improve battery design and the long process chain of battery production, including pack and module, cells, electrodes, and particularly functional particles as active material in anode and cathode electrodes. For the future battery generations, the design and production of solid electrolyte particles for all solid-state batteries are of special interest. Improvements in active and passive material particles and their processing should result in batteries with a high level of safety, increased environmental friendliness, and lower cost. This Special Issue (SI) aims to present the latest studies on all aspects related to the design, synthesis, and fabrication of anode and cathode active material particles from primary and secondary material resources as well as electronic and ionic conductive particles (carbon additives and solid electrolyte particles). Moreover, particles’ behavior during the processing of anode and cathode slurries, electrodes, and cells of different battery generations as well as safety concerns via experimental and modeling/simulation investigations are in the focus of this SI. Additionally, studies about lifecycle analysis and cost of battery material particles and their production and processing are welcome. The SI includes not only lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) but also other batteries with potential for commercial production and marketing.

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 2200 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.
