Special Issue in Catalysts: Nanomaterials-Based Catalysts in Electrical Engineering Applications
Energy is the prerequisite of industrial activities, a necessity for human communities, and a basic requirement for food production. As the world population grows, the demand of energy also increases. At the same time, climate change is accelerating and raw materials are being depleted. To meet the above challenges, the world is currently undergoing a radical transition towards sustainable energy. In many cases, this means electrification of energy uses in traffic, heating systems, and industrial processes. The increased demand of carbon-free electricity leads to the extensive utilization of weather-dependent variable renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. This calls for new flexibility in power and energy systems which can be achieved—in addition to energy-storage solutions—by the sector coupling of power and heat, as well as the utilization of the flexibility of power uses in industrial processes, electrified traffic, and power-to-X applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be 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. Processes 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 2000 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.
