The generation, storage, and transport of energy are among the greatest challenges, if not the most formidable challenge at all, for years to come. Although there have been exciting new developments in these fields, many open questions remain. Many of these are closely connected to materials science, physics, and chemistry. As a result, International Journal of Molecular Sciences will publish a special issue on energy technology for the 21st century. The special issue will showcase the latest and most promising developments for the next centuries. Contributions (reviews and original papers) from all branches of energy technology are welcome and will be considered for publication.
