Continuously increasing energy consumption and environmental problem has triggered global interests in research related to the creation of and saving of energy. Waste energy harvesting is an important topic in this regard. Development of materials and devices is the first step towards success of waste energy harvesting. Waste energy includes heat, light, sound, vibration or movement and so on. Materials that can be used for waste energy harvesting include piezoeletric, pyroelectric, nanopiezoelectric, nanotriboelectric, thermoelectric, phase change effect, etc. The effects of these materials should be realized by using their respective devices. Therefore, with the success of last year’s Special Issue, this Special Issue is aimed at providing with a platform for experts to present their new achievement in materials and devices for waste energy harvesting, with focus on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- General issues on waste energy and waste energy harvesting;
- Mechanical waste energy harvesting and devices;
- Piezoelectric waste energy harvesters;
- Nanogenerators for waste energy harvesting;
- Nanotriboelectric generators;
- Thermoelectric materials and devices for waste energy harvesting;
- Pyroelectric waste energy harvesters;
- Phase change materials for waste energy harvesting.

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
