Special Issue Information
The ever-increasing energy demand and depleting sources of conventional energy have forced policymakers and researchers to contemplate efficient use of available resources as well as to explore renewable forms of energy. In this context, nanotechnology can be said to have emerged as a blessing for engineers and scientists who have successfully explored its applicability in enhancing the efficiency of numerous devices. The last decade has seen enormous efforts being devoted to investigating heat transfer behavior assisted by nanofluid. The research in this particular field is progressing in a new direction with hybrid nanofluids. The recent trend has shown promising outcomes when nanotechnology is coupled with renewable energy extraction. To provide but a few examples, nanotechnology has been successfully applied to enhance photovoltaic efficiency, solar-assisted desalination, and biofuels.
This Special Issue is devoted to exchanging the latest information with respect to nanotechnology as applied to energy transport in the form of heat transfer and its use in renewable energy.

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 2600 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.
