Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flexible photovoltaic devices have attracted much attention because of their promising applications in portable or wearable electronics, power-generated textiles, building-integrated photovoltaic systems, the Internet of Things, and soft robots. Compared to their conventional rigid counterparts, such as crystalline silicon solar cells, flexible photovoltaic devices possess unique advantages of being lightweight, flexible, easy to manipulate, processable at low temperatures, and potentially low-cost. Realizing high performance of solar cells on flexible substrates is an urgent step for their practical application, including high efficiency and good stability, which is currently under intensive research on cadmium telluride, copper indium gallium selenide, organics, and perovskites. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide recent developments in flexible solar cells because of their increasing importance and rapid progress. We hereby to invite you to submit your recent work on this promising topic.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
