Special Issue "Solar Thermoelectric Generators"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 July 2021.
Interests: thermoelectric generators; computational fluid dynamics; sand filters; hydraulic turbines
Interests: thermoelectric generators; thermoelectricity
We are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of Solar Thermoelectric Generators (STEGs).
STEGs are thermoelectric generators that use solar radiation as a heat source. STEGs are very simple, reliable, and lightweight, and they may operate with high-temperature high-efficiency thermoelectric modules. All of these features, among others, have recently increased the interest of using STEGs to provide electrical energy in off-grid applications, to improve the energy efficiency of systems and facilities, and so on.
- This Special Issue focuses on the analysis, design, and implementation of STEGs.
- Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- STEG design (cold and/or hot heat sinks, structure design of thermoelectric modules, etc.)
- Performance analysis of STEG systems
- Optimization studies of STEG systems
- High-performance thermoelectric materials for STEG applications
- Non-conventional applications of STEG (windows, façades, roads, etc.)
- Micro-power STEG systems
- STEG for space applications
- STEG integrated in other energy systems
- Hybrid PV-STEG systems

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 2000 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.
