Special Issue in Materials: Electrocatalytic Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion and Storage
Energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources are key goals of energy policies, to achieve a sustainable future (i.e., the 2030 Climate&Energy framework set targets for greenhouse gas emissions, share of renewable energy and energy efficiency). These targets can be reached by acting on the demand side and/or on the supply side; of course, the two sides are highly correlated and multi-disciplinary studies are needed to provide a complete understanding of the topic. For example, when considering the demand side in the residential sector, particular interest is devoted to energy poverty.
This Special Issue aims to collect contributions of the state-of-the-art on field of (a) sustainable and resource-efficient technologies in both the residential and the industrial sectors and of (b) demand side description and modeling.
The topic interests for this Special Issue includes the following topics:
Track#1. Energy efficiency in buildings
Track#2. Energy consumption at the household level (e.g., household segmentations, relationships between households variables and energy consumption, etc.)
Track#3. Definitions, measures and policy implications of energy poverty
Track#4. Energy efficiency, energy recovery technologies
Track#5. Energy and material recovery
Track#6. Sustainable development, consumption, products and services
Track#7. Efficient use of natural resources
Track#8. Alternative and sustainable energy resources

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. Resources 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.
