Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Growing energy demands, limited fossil fuel availability, and environmental concerns have promoted the study and development of new ecofriendly sustainable technologies that could provide humanity with a safe and sustainable future. Advanced materials with novel structures and new application directions have the greatest potential impact on the energy society. Bioinspired advanced materials can provide clean energy resources as well as a sustainable environment, which can play a crucial role in providing new strategies to accumulate different energies using different green resources. The current Special Issue is devoted to advanced-material-based energy harvesting and storage applications using different technologies, such as piezoelectric, triboelectric, solar, supercapacitors, etc., for sustainable society developments. The motivation of the present Special Issue is to explore future strategies in the abovementioned areas using bioinspired materials, which are of great interest to the scientific community, including academic researchers, environmentalists, materials scientists, and industrialists.

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. Sustainability 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.
