Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Starting from graphene, the last decade has revealed the growth of a new class of atomically thin materials called two-dimensional (2D) materials. Like graphene, crystals such as hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides, phosphorene, and their van der Waals’ heterostructures have shown extraordinary electronic properties, bringing unique prospects for low power nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, spintronics and next generation flexible electronic applications, while being extremely promising for energy harvesting, photovoltaics, energy generation and storage, catalysis, and thermoelectric applications. This special issue “Novel 2D energy materials and devices”, aims to bring together high-quality theoretical and experimental works to highlight the significance of emerging energy-related research in 2D materials.

Therefore, I take the pleasure of welcoming you to submit your manuscripts (full papers, communications, and review articles) covering the outlined and other energy relevant topics to this special issue.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
