Nanoenergy Technologies and Materials aims to publish theoretical, experimental, and numerical studies on nanoenergy science and engineering with a focus on materials and technologies at the nanoscale or the subnanometer scale. In particular, atomistic and molecular design offers high-performance materials for energy applications. There is a critical need for technologies that can take advantage of unique material properties and can produce these materials at a large scale and a low cost. These materials and technologies are pertinent to all aspects of energy including energy harvest, conversion, storage, utilization, conservation, and management. The section welcomes submissions on rational design and engineering, fundamental understanding, characterization, and practical translation of materials and technologies in the nanoenergy field. Technologies for integration of subnanometer, nanoscale, microscale, and macroscale materials into functional systems are highly desirable for energy applications. We also welcome submissions on nanosystems that contain nanoenergy technologies and materials. Finally, the environmental, economic, and societal aspects of nanoenergy technologies and materials should be considered by a responsible research community. For this reason, we encourage manuscripts on the life cycle analysis, climate control issues, economics, environmental and societal impacts, and policy issues of nanoenergy technologies and materials.
Our objective is to provide a leading and comprehensive platform for disseminating innovative materials and technologies at the nanoscale or beyond in all aspects of energy as well as the development of nanoenergy products, with the ultimate goal of fostering growth in the nanoenergy sector and accelerating the progress in nanoenergy research in the modern era when energy security and environmental protection are both critical for growing population and world economy. Unrestricted free access of high quality research findings will accelerate scientific communication of high quality research findings. Our approach will stimulate research activities to advance scientific knowledge in this field and related ones throughout the world.
