In recent years, growing energy demands, along with increasing concerns of environmental pollution, excessive greenhouse gas emissions, and accelerating global warming, have drawn significant attention towards renewable energy technologies. Substantial progress has already been achieved in this field, thanks to the research and development of functional materials that enable cost-effective, durable, and highly-efficient renewable energy conversion and storage. However, this is an ongoing effort, as more work is needed in the discovery of new and improvement of existing materials, to enable large-scale, economically viable deployment of such devices and technologies.
We are launching this Special Issue, entitled "Functional Materials for Renewable Energy Technologies", in the open access journal, ChemEngineering, to provide a publication platform for researchers working in this field to share and discuss their novel and cutting-edge ideas and results. The submission of high quality manuscripts in the form of research papers, communications, or reviews, are welcome.
This Special Issue covers topics of functional materials for various renewable energy technologies, including:
- batteries and supercapacitors
- organic and inorganic photovoltaics
- water splitting and photocatalysis
- solar fuels and fuel cells
- thermal and mechanical energy harvesting

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
