Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Sustainable electricity generation solutions are mostly based on renewable energy resources. Storage solutions can be used to cope with the intermittency of such resources. These kinds of applications need special attention with regard to sizing, system and component design, operation, and economic and business models, especially when such storage devices interact with the power system. This Special Issue aims to publish novel research on such storage applications in power systems as well as pilot or validation experiences that can contribute significant novelties. Both large- and small-scale storage applications are encompassed by the Special Issue's scope. Also, smart and microgrid solutions with storage applications are welcome. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of the research results.
The range of relevant topics includes:
- Storage technologies for power system applications (grid connected or islanded)
- Design and sizing of hybrid storage and renewable electricity generation installations
- Techniques for the optimal operation of storage and renewable electricity generation systems
- Microgrid and smart grid solutions for combined storage and renewable systems
- Market operation and business models for storage applications in renewable generation environments
- Demonstration and validation experiences of storage applications together with renewable generation

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. Sustainability 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 1800 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.
