Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on “Advanced Energy Materials and Research”.

The increasing energy demand and consumption due to growing global population and the critical relationship between energy, environment, and sustainability lead to novel discoveries and advancements in the field of energy materials in search of alternative resources as well as recycling and reuse of energy materials. Energy materials are making groundbreaking developments in the science of materials innovation and production. The transformation of conventional fossil fuel to renewable and sustainable energy sources due to the geophysical and social stress results in the development of advanced energy materials to support emerging technologies. The emerging materials for energy associated application include but are not limited to photovoltaic, batteries, fuel cells, nanostructured materials, and light sources.

In this Special Issue of Energies, original research articles or reviews on topics related to advanced energy materials and their characterization are welcome. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • Advanced energy materials
  • Recycling and reuse of energy materials
  • Solar energy materials
  • Hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology
  • Semiconductor materials
  • Batteries and energy materials
  • Nanotechnology and energy materials
  • Advanced nanomaterials
  • Energy harvesting materials
  • Bio-materials for energy production
  • Carbon materials in energy
  • Biomaterials and surface science engineering
  • Solid electrolytes
  • Advanced graphene materials
  • Electric, hybrid, and fuel-cell vehicles
  • Polymer materials
  • Mining, metallurgy, and materials science

Electrical, optical and magnetic materials

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.
