During the last few years, worldwide research has been focused on clean and sustainable energy conversion and storage that can respond to the rising energy demands of mankind. To enable the transformation from a fossil fuels to a low-carbon socio-economical epoch, the development of new materials with refined characteristics is necessary. These characteristics include, for example, enhancement of harvesting and conversion efficiencies and improvement of energy storage properties, as well as advanced processes for faster or simpler novel device manufacturing.
This Special Issue aims to collect state-of-the-art contributions in a broad range of subjects related to preparation approaches and characterization techniques of (multi)functional ceramics and nanostructures in the field of energy harvesting and storage. Examples include, but are not limited to, oxide-based materials for capacitors, supercapacitors, thermoelectric generators, and piezoelectric energy harvesters.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2200 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.
