Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mechanical energy widely exists in the environment and is an ideal form of zero-carbon energy. However, a large amount of mechanical energy exists in the form of high entropy, which is difficult to directly convert into electrical energy. Energy harvesting technology is studied in terms of energy harvesting, electromechanical conversion, energy storage and self-powered system application. The use of high-entropy mechanical energy to power low-power consumption sensors and form the self-powered Internet of Things is a promising method. This Special Issue aims to focus on advancements in the field of Energy Harvesting and Self-Powered Systems. This Special Issue is focused on, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • Energy harvesting and nanogenerators;
  • Smart transducers and mems;
  • Advanced materials and electromechanical conversion methods;
  • Self-powered actuators and micro–nano robots;
  • Self-powered sensing for marine environments;
  • Nano energy applications in mems, e-skin, and ai;
  • Self-powered systems for iot applications;
  • Energy storage and self-charging power systems;
  • Metamaterials’ design, analysis and applications for energy harvesting;
  • Wireless transmission and circuit control system.

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 2200 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.
