The Energy Materials section publishes pioneering fundamental and applied research on the rational design of materials used in all forms of sustainable energy harvesting, conversion, storage and utilization. Topics include, but are not limited to:
· Organic and inorganic photovoltaics
· Fuel cells
· Batteries and supercapacitors
· Electrocatalysis and electrocatalysts for energy conversion and storage
· Photocatalysis and photocatalysts for water splitting
· Hydrogen production and storage
· Carbon capture, storage and utilization
· Thermochemical, piezoelectric and thermoelectric materials and devices
· Flexible, self-powered and/or integrated energy devices/systems
All studies must present an advance in the chemistry used to produce the materials or show a novelty in the properties or applications of the materials produced. Studies solely focusing on the application of well-known materials or policy work are better-suited to our sister Journal, Frontiers in Energy Research.

Energy Materials welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Erratum, Hypothesis and Theory, Mini Review, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Energy Materials, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Energy Materials will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Materials.
