The world is now facing two major crises: serious energy shortages and accelerating climate change. Solutions to these crises are interlinked, and the adoption of clean energy sources could solve both crises. For this purpose, scientists all over the world are working to develop various devices or systems to convert solar energy efficiently into electrical, chemical, or thermal energy. Like in most other research fields, nanotechnology is demonsrating huge potential in this field because the fascinating optical and electronical properties of nanomaterials play an important role in solar energy conversion and storage. However, low energy-conversion-efficiency, photocorrosion, and high-cost and complicated synthesis routes of nanomaterials are the main problems for their practical application. To obtain solutions of these problems and further advance this field, it is very important to share new research results and information among scientists. This Special Issue aims to share recent progress and developments in nanotechnology for solar energy conversion and storage. We invite authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles covering a broad range of subjects, from modeling nanomaterials to new device applications for solar energy conversion and storage.
Keywords: Potential topics include but are not limited to the following – Semiconductor nanomaterials and nanostructured films (synthesis, characterization, and applications); Solar cells (quantum dots, organic–inorganic hydride, dye-sensitized, thin-film solar cell, etc.); Solar hydrogen (photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic hydrogen production); Nanophotocatalysis for CO2 reduction; Nanophotocatalysis for chemical reactions, air, and water remediation; Nanomaterials for solar to thermal energy conversion and storage; Mechanistic studies, engineering, and modeling on nanophotocatalysts.

Aims and Scope

The world is now facing two major crises: serious energy shortages and accelerating climate change. Solutions to these crises are interlinked, and the adoption of clean energy sources could solve both crises. For this purpose, scientists all over the world are working to develop various devices or systems to convert solar energy efficiently into electrical, chemical, or thermal energy. Like in most other research fields, nanotechnology is demonsrating huge potential in this field because the fascinating optical and electronical properties of nanomaterials play an important role in solar energy conversion and storage. However, low energy-conversion-efficiency, photocorrosion, and high-cost and complicated synthesis routes of nanomaterials are the main problems for their practical application. To obtain solutions of these problems and further advance this field, it is very important to share new research results and information among scientists. This Special Issue aims to share recent progress and developments in nanotechnology for solar energy conversion and storage.
