Special Issue "Novel Materials and Processes for Photovoltaic Technology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Submit your paper and select the Journal “Energies” and the Special Issue “Novel Materials and Processes for Photovoltaic Technology” via: https://susy.mdpi.com/user/manuscripts/upload?journal=energies. Please contact the guest editor or the journal editor ([email protected]) for any queries.
Photovoltaic technology is the symbol of a sustainable future in many countries around the globe. As a result, numerous investments have been made in research, development, demonstrators, and production lines. No other renewable technology has received such a strong appreciation from the public, politics, and industry. New technologies have traced the way for new materials, products, and additional market segments. Engineering, nanoscience, nanotechnology, and surface science have contributed to introducing new materials and customized processes for solar cell and to developing the sustainable energy sources scenario. In the last decades, many research institutes, companies, and consortia have demonstrated that the new concept of solar cell technology can achieve high performance, large application areas, and industrialization. There are different types of solar devices among the third generation photovoltaics that have recently emerged and their benefits and issues have been exhibited, e.g.: dye-sensitized solar cells, hybrid and organic solar cells, quantum dot solar cells, and perovskite solar cells. This Special Issue aims to be a global reference for research and industrial developments in third-generation photovoltaics. We expect to receive original or review manuscripts that can be of interest and help to researchers, experts, and entrepreneurs.

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.
