Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the industrial revolution of the 21st century, the global demand for energy has exceeded that of agricultural and industrial societies over thousands of years. Today, all types of devices, from mobile phones and laptops to industrial equipment and public transportation, require an energy supply to provide electricity. With the continuous advancement of technology, portable electronic products are being developed with miniaturization and high efficiency in mind, driving the continuous reduction in semiconductor components and improvement in efficiency. With the arrival of the era of environmental protection and low-carbon goals, self-powered microdevices can reduce not only the demand for energy but also the degree of environmental pollution they emit.

Solar cells, nanogenerators, wearable components, and their applications are crucial for modern-day human life. This Special Issue seeks papers on new research findings in novel interdisciplinary fields that support green energy, self-powered devices, and nanogenerators. Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Preparation and application of green energy nanomaterials;
  • Development of wearable components;
  • Self-powered nanogenerator applications for novel technology;
  • Advanced materials in triboelectric nanogenerator;
  • Solar cell, battery, and electric device modeling;
  • Portable electronics for IOT fields;
  • Electrical performances of nanogenerators in ultrasonic waves;
  • Machine diagnostics and reliability;
  • Information systems, computer networking, and the Internet;

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.
