Building on the Millennium Development Goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the cornerstone of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, billed by the UN as “An Agenda of unprecedented scope and significance.”  The seventeen ambitious goals, which are intended to be reached by 2030, are conceived as integrated, indivisible, and as balancing the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. As a member of the SDGs Publishers Compact, Frontiers is committed to accelerating progress to achieve the goals. 

The seventeen SDGs are organized around five core pillars:
1. People: ending poverty and hunger and ensuring that all human beings can lead fulfilling lives in a healthy and dignified environment.
2. Planet: protecting the environment while ensuring sustainable use and management of natural resources.
3. Prosperity: ensuring environmentally sustainable economic growth, mutual prosperity, and decent work for all.
4. Peace: building societies that are peaceful, just, and inclusive, and in which human rights and gender equality are respected.
5. Partnership: strengthening global solidarity to address inequalities within and between countries, by focusing on the needs of the most vulnerable.


This Research Topic will address the UN SDG 7, which focuses on ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, from the nanotechnology perspective.

We welcome the submission of Original Research, Reviews, Mini-Reviews and Perspective articles on all topics related to tackling the 7th UN SDG from a Nanotechnology perspective. Themes may include, but are not limited to the following:

• Organic, inorganic, and hybrid photovoltaics
• Batteries and supercapacitors
• Fuel Cells
• Hydrogen production and storage
• Carbon capture, storage, and utilization
• Photo- and electrocatalysts for energy conversion and storage
• Optoelectronic devices for efficient energy usage
• Opto-nanoelectronics and opto-nanomechanics
• Integrated optical devices and photovoltaic devices
• Thermochemical, thermoelectric and piezoelectric materials, and devices
• Flexible, self-powered, and/or integrated energy devices/systems
• Nanogenerators for energy harvesting
• Computational methods for energy-storage nanomaterials.

Keywords: Energy, Energy storage, fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, green energy, water splitting, energy efficiency, energy harvesting, hydrogen production, photovoltaic devices, photovoltaics
