Electrochemical cells, including fuel cells, batteries, and electrolysis cells will play a much more important role in future energy systems for various applications, but significant research is continuously required for reducing manufacturing costs and improving cell performance/durability.
Multi-physics and -phase transport processes of the reactants/products, heat, and charges are strongly coupled with various electrochemical reactions, which impacts the electrode design, component structure/configuration selection, and cell overall performance. This Special Issue will highlight the current research activities and development, focusing on fundamental understanding and analysis of the transport phenomena coupled with charge-transfer reactions. One of the major objectives of this issue is to provide state-of-the-art electrochemical cell research in both experimental and theoretical analysis methods and progress, including the topics relevant to the catalytic reactions in three-phase boundaries (TPBs) and various transport processes within multi-functional structures, as well as their couplings in electrochemical cells.

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
