Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

New and emerging perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are approaching the conversion efficiency of 24% mark. These material-based solar cells have adopted ABX3 perovskite structure based organic–inorganic hybrid compounds. From the commercialization point of view, PSCs can offer lower production cost with higher conversion efficiency than the silicon or thin film solar cells. However, the stability of the devices and concern regarding toxic materials usage are the major challenges for their commercialization. This Special Issue focuses on the issues of stability, scalability, and environmental and economic concerns regarding PSCs. Moreover, this special issue will give complete overview on the issues related to the PSC commercialization.

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 1800 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.
