In recent years, there has been a sharp increase in the deployment of photovoltaic (PV) systems as a source of power generation in both standalone and grid-connected systems. While this plays an important role in the transition toward a more sustainable power supply, electricity generation from PV systems has an intermittent nature because of the seasonal, daily, and intra-day fluctuations of solar irradiation. Consequently, the supply of PV-generated electricity typically results in a mismatch with the power demand. Battery energy storage systems (BESSs) can be used as a complementary technology to support the dispatchability of clean and cheap electricity generated by PV systems. In addition, PV-coupled BESSs can be used to provide ancillary services, leading to a more resilient power system.
This Special Issue will focus on the assessment of PV-coupled BESSs and their applications in power systems, ranging from home to grid scale battery systems. We, therefore, invite papers on technology assessment, innovative technology developments, analytical models, reviews, and case studies. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Technical, economic, and environmental assessment of PV-coupled BESS applications (including home-based, community, and grid scale applications)
- Energy management models, forecasting, and optimization techniques
- Innovative business models and case studies
- Barriers for BESS implementation
- Socio-economic issues and policy developments

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.
