Customized electronics with a decent flexibility, miniaturization, and intellectualization have strong potential to improve one’s quality of life. With the rapid advancement in nanoscience and nanotechnology, the power consumption of micro-/nano-electronics are continuously being shrunk from a mW to μW/nW scale, enabling the conversion of ubiquitous, but usually unexploited, ambient green energy as a promising power solution for small electronics. Harvesting, storing, and managing these energies, including, for example, mechanical, thermal, and light, may overcome the limitation of massive batteries, as well as extend sustainability. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to publish original research and review articles focusing on advanced nanomaterials and nanotechnology for effective harvesting, storage, and utilization of ambient green energy. This Special Issue will cover topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- Nanomaterials for mechanical energy conversion (human motion, sound, wind, wave, etc.)
- Nanomaterials for thermal energy conversion (human body, air, electronics, building, etc.)
- Hybrid energy harvesters
- Nanomaterials for storage devices (supercapacitors, batteries, etc.)
- System integration
- Self-powered sensing
- Circuit management
- Theoretical studies on energy conversion

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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 2400 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.
