Utilizing the piezoelectric and triboelectric effect, the emerging nanogenerator (NG) has become an effective technology for converting mechanical energy into electricity, with the advantages of high efficiency in low frequency, simple structure, low cost, light weight, and abundant material selection to traditional electromagnetic generators. Different from the huge energy needs, NG aims at harvesting the distributed nano-micro energies for sustainable, independent, and maintenance-free operation of micro/nano-systems and mobile/portable electronics.
This Special Issue of Energies aims to cover the most recent advances in the materials, structures, and technologies for designing all kinds of NGs, and their potential applications in mechanical energy harvesting, self-powered sensor, blue energy and etc.
We welcome full papers, communications, and review articles emphasizing the broad scope of the topic.
