Special Issue Information
Aiming to mitigate the negative effect of climate change while maintaining social prosperity as a priority, the broad theme of sustainability is targeting a balance between economic growth and sustainable mobility. In this context, as a consequence of climate change concerns, the automotive industry is facing major investment targeting to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. Therefore, the transportation sector is adopting the electric mobility paradigm, entailing a set of important questions about sustainability, namely, about the required amount of electricity for driving an electric vehicle, the environmental impact due to the amount of energy required to produce EV (including batteries). This work concentrates on EV adoption integrated with GES. Specifically, this Special Issue examines the feasibility of significantly reducing GHG emissions by integrating EVs with GESs for sustainable mobility.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Solar energy/wind energy/biomass energy/hydroelectric power/geothermal energy;
- Smart grids;
- Battery storage systems/battery SoC, SoH, and thermal estimations;
- Battery charging, balancing, and management technologies;
- Information, communication; machine learning; IoT; and big data for green energy, storage systems, and smart grids;
- Threats, challenges, and opportunities associated with integrating green energy, storage systems, and smart grids;
- Case studies on recent advances in green energy, storage systems, and smart grids;
- Environmental, economic, policy, or social impacts of green energy, energy storage systems, and smart grids;
- Power electronics-based solutions for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle energy storage and management systems;
- New techniques in design and controller implementation for a battery ultracapacitor hybrid electric vehicle energy storage system;
- Multi-objective genetic algorithms for the optimal design of parallel hybrid electric vehicles;
- Modeling, design, control, and implementation of a modified integrated PV/grid/EV DC charger/inverter;
- Innovative methods for thermal management in modern electric vehicle battery systems.

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. World Electric Vehicle Journal 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 1000 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.
