Green energy conversion and storage technologies based on sustainable energy sources are attracting significant consideration owing to the continuously rising energy demand for sustainable social and economic development. In recent decades, significant rapid growth in the consumption of primary energy sources has been witnessed worldwide. The portion of energy supply from renewables keeps rising, as the portion of conventional energy sources, for instance, coal, seems to decline continually. Therefore, to support the sustainable use of energy, particularly from intermittent renewable sources, next-generation systematized energy conversion and storage technologies are greatly desired, which can be enabled by functional nanomaterials.

Developing promising strategies for establishing innovative functional nanomaterials for the next-generation energy conversion and storage systems is essential to enable large-scale green energy production and grid-scale electricity storage. With the aim to explore new avenues in this field, this research topic will identify and demonstrate basic concepts and current progress regarding the efficient utilization of functional nanomaterials in electrochemical engineering, in particular electrolyzers, fuel cells, and energy storage devices, and various other energy conversion systems.


This Research Topic welcomes Original Research and Review papers around the following themes (not exclusively):

-The synthesis, characterization, and use of functional nanomaterials in the following areas:

-Catalysis
