Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We are very happy to announce that a Special Issue devoted to photovoltaic components, devices and systems that are of importance for solar-power conversion as well as for optical power transmission is being prepared. In parallel with this Special Issue of Energies, a sister Special Issue of Photonics is also being planned for the latest papers related to OWPT 2019-21 on the topics of photonic technology.
The optical power transmission technologies could be heavily applied, in the near future, to a wide range of applications from, for example, minute IoT terminals, home appliances, and industrial equipment to power transmission infrastructures in various environments for which conventional methods are difficult to apply. Although basic technical functions of these optical power transmission technologies have already been being studied, practical and commercial systems are still in very early stages, and thus, the activation of related research is strongly needed for the developments of many applications. Clarifying both the superiority and the problems of the optical power transmission, we will be able to fully gasp the state of the art of those fields, such as materials, devices, components, and systems that can be used not only for optical power transmission but also for solar-power conversion. We are ready to bring many valuable social benefits to mankind.

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.
