Thematic Series on Energy Storage across Multiple Energy Systems

Guest Editor-in-Chief: Jinyu Wen

Energy storage, as the enabling technology to achieve a global sustainable energy future, provides a broad array of technological approaches to a more resilient energy infrastructure and brings cost savings to utilities and consumers. Energy storage technologies have been widely used in the energy production, transmission, distribution and consumption across multiple energy sectors such as heating, gas and power systems. However, open questions remain in the development of storage technologies and the utilization of the energy storages across multiple energy sectors in a harmonized way. For example, (i) The characteristics of different energy storage systems vary drastically. Novel methodologies are urgently needed for unified evaluation of the technical and economic feasibilities. (ii) Advanced techniques for decision-making to control, operate and plan the energy storages should be proposed. (iii) How to find the optimal way to use the energy storage to improve the flexibility of the system to accommodate the intermittent renewable sources. (iv) The generation and consumption should be well coordinated across all the energy systems with the assistance of energy storages. To address the concerns mentioned above, this thematic series will focus on the latest development and research in Energy Storage across Multiple Energy Systems.

All papers and supplementary information (if any) should be submitted online and prepared according to PCMP guidelines. Authors should indicate that the paper is submitted for the thematic series in their cover letter and is not published or being considered to be published elsewhere. All submission will be subject to peer review before possible acceptance for publication in PCMP which is free of charge and highly accessed by readers from all over the world.
