Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Efficient, clean, and versatile energy storage has become one of the most critical issues governing society’s ability to realize sustainability. Breakthroughs in materials and methods involving sustainable resources are crucial to protecting humankind from the most serious consequences of climate change. Against this background, energy storage systems including rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors can play a crucial role in the development of a sustainable future. Numerous research efforts are underway to explore new chemistries based on various elements, including Li, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, and Al, and depending on the field of application, different elements inherit different advantages and challenges. Furthermore, new opportunities arise from the perspective of developing novel electrolytes and all-solid-state systems.

The Second Italian Workshop on Energy Storage (IWES 2023), organized by the Italian Group for Electrochemical Energy Storage, GISEL (, is the main Italian scientific event in the field of electrochemical energy storage technology-related materials and advanced characterization tools. IWES aims at gathering scientists and engineers developing batteries in public institutions (universities and national labs) and in private companies from the Italian community and beyond. The goal is to provide a clear, organized, and interactive forum, where research achievements and goals can be shared easily and safely among all battery stakeholders. The scientific program will feature selected presentations related to topics that cover fundamental and applied research in electrochemical energy storage.

We welcome you to share up-to-date knowledge, developed in your research group, with the Second Italian Workshop on Energy Storage (IWES) 2023 community, which will allow us to collect high-level contributions so as to create a valuable, unique Topic collection for MDPI journals.
