Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, global warming and environmental pollution have attracted more attention due to the use of fossil fuels. Sustainable and clean power generation technologies can be assumed as potential replacement candidates for current oil/coal methods and their related issues. However, reliable energy access remains a challenge. The challenge of providing adequate power on an indefinite basis without causing long-term damage to the environment, while also reducing and controlling energy consumption and preserving natural resources, requires a versatile means of energy conversion and storage. Therefore, the development of renewable and sustainable energy storage systems has accelerated. Electrochemical power source devices, such as fuel cells, supercapacitors, and batteries, have been utilized in portable electronic devices and hybrid vehicles that convert the energy of electrochemical phenomena directly into electrical current and power.

This Special Issue aims to attract all researchers working in this research field and will collect new findings, operational features, and major types of electrochemical power sources and will provide future applications of devices. Research manuscripts, as well as a limited number of review manuscripts, are encouraged in the following areas:

  • Fuel cells;
  • Batteries;
  • Capacitors;
  • Energy storage;
  • Sustainable energy and engineering systems;
  • Structure–properties relationship;
  • Electrochemical solar energy conversion;
  • Environmental effects;
  • Applications;
  • Recycling.

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 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.
