The energetics of electrified interfaces exhibiting constant phase element (CPE) behaviour is discussed. In the double layer region energy can be dissipated in various ways other than by charge transfer. Therefore, contrary to the statement in Zoltowski., J. Electroanal. Chem. 443 (1998) 149, an electrode with a double layer of CPE character can be an ideally polarisable electrode.
