About the topic:

Dear Colleagues,

Energy conversion is vital to sustain our daily life by changing energy from one form to another. Raw energy including sunlight, heat, fossil fuels, and even microorganisms, renewable and non-renewables, are usually transformed into useful forms of energy for applications. The transformation of energy via electrochemical methods, such as those involved in solar cells, fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries, and supercapacitors etc., has become increasingly important in energy sectors recently. These electrochemical systems provide advantages of not only producing energy in a more environmentally clean way but also giving a higher efficiency than conventional counterparts. The high efficiency from these devices is resulted from direct energy transfer, e.g., from chemical energy into electricity or vice versa, thus reducing energy loss confined by thermodynamics in multi-step conversion. Besides, an effective conversion is also indispensable as the electrochemical process relies on both fundamental studies and various components in material and engineering aspects. The aim of this Special Issue is to seek an efficient and effective energy conversion by bringing together high-quality research articles and reviews on various energy-generating systems where energy conversion is conducted via electrochemical methods. Topics include, but are not limited to, various batteries, energy storage devices, fuel cells, electrolyzers, solar energy conversion, photoelectrochemical cell, and novel electrocatalysts with relevant electrochemical kinetics involved.

I invite you all to contribute with your valuable research to this Special Issue.
