Special Journal Issue Focuses on Energy Storage Technologies

Sep 9, 2020

The ASME Journal of Energy Resources Technology is currently accepting manuscripts for a special issue focusing on the topic “Energy Storage Technologies.” Authors who are interested in having their manuscripts included in the special issue, to be published by May 31, 2021, should submit their manuscripts by February 28, 2021.
The world’s energy systems—electricity, thermal (heat), refrigeration (cold)—and transportation sectors are tending to have a higher penetration of renewable energies. This journey of the global energy matrix toward an optimal sustainable energy system is called “green transition.” Due to the intermittent nature of two of the most important renewable sources—wind and solar—efficient and cost-effective energy storage solutions from small to large scales are valuable assets for a faster and secure green transition process. Energy storage systems come into the main categories of chemical, electrochemical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal technologies, and depending on their class could be used for either thermal or electrical energy storage applications.
This special issue aims at attracting cutting-edge research and review articles on “energy storage technologies and applications” for both thermal and electrical applications.
Manuscripts to be included in the special issue should concentrate on a range of topics including, but not limited to, novel designs of energy storage systems; improvement of existing energy storage designs via passive or active techniques; combination of energy storage systems with novel energy production plants; hybridization of existing energy production plants with energy storage technologies for higher flexibility and resiliency; techno-economic studies on large-scale and cost-efficient energy storage technologies; new multi-objective optimization methods/algorithms for hybrid renewable power plants combined with energy storage units; dynamic modeling of advanced energy storage technologies; and multifunctional energy storage systems for creating synergies between different energy sectors.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the journal by February 28, 2021, via Journals Connect at journaltool.asme.org. Authors who have an account should log in and select “Submit Paper” at the bottom of the page. Authors without an account should select “Submissions” and follow the steps. At the Paper Submittal page, authors should select “ASME Journal of Energy Resources Technology” and then select the special issue “Energy Storage Technologies.” Papers received after the deadline or papers not selected for inclusion in the special issue may be accepted for publication in a regular issue.
The guest editors for the special issue are Ahmad Arabkoohsar, Aalborg University, Denmark, ahm@et.aau.dk; Kamal Abdel Radi Ismail, State University of Campinas, Brazil, kamal@fem.unicamp.br; Yongheng Yang, Aalborg University, Denmark, yoy@et.aau.dk; and Daniel-Ioan Stroe, Aalborg University, Denmark, dis@et.aau.dk.
