Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy issues are one of the most relevant world issues that must be solved in the near future, due to the increased demand from new advanced systems and concepts related to sustainability, sensor and portable devices, and electric mobility. To overcome this issue, existing/new energy sources should not be neglected. Energy harvesting, generation, and storage systems strongly rely on new materials and processes that should be explored in order to overcome the current limitations of those systems both in terms of performance or materials characteristics in terms of sustainability. Furthermore, additive manufacturing technologies applied to different energy harvesting, generation, and storage systems allow researchers to address some of the most critical fabrication issues, becoming, therefore, an area with high impact and research activity in the scientific community.

In this context, original research papers, short communications, or state-of-the-art reviews are accepted in this Special Issue focusing on the fundamental properties, manufacturing processes, and characteristics of composites applied to energy systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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.
