Nanomaterials for Renewable Energy Storage: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications

Description

Currently indiscriminate mobilization of fossil fuels used in many different fields poses a serious threat to global health and development. Depletion of fossil fuels in future and abrupt increase in green-house gas emissions pushed researchers and engineers worldwide to develop technology for sustainable renewable energy. Introduction of nanostructured materials provides platform for energy generation and storage. Over the last two decades, nanostructured materials have attracted serious attention due to their novel geometrical features and unique mechanical, electrical, chemical, electronic, optical, and magnetic properties. Different kind of nanotubes, nanofibers, nanoparticles, and nanoengineered polymer matrix are being engaged to generate and store various forms of energy from sunlight, hydroelectric energy, windmills, biomass, waste heat, solar cells, batteries, hydrogen and fuel cells, geothermal powers, raw materials, clothing, and transmission wires.

We invite researchers globally to contribute original research articles as well as review articles to understand the development of nanostructured materials to store different kinds of sustainable renewable energy to overcome the depletion of fossil fuels in future and reduce green-house gas emissions responsible for global warming effects.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Hydrogen storage applications in nanostructured materials
  • Advances in theoretical and experimental investigations of nanoengineered materials for energy storage
  • Energy storage in advanced materials
  • Development of novel energy storage materials
  • Role of nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanocomposite in development of energy storage
  • Development of new nanoadsorbents and nanocatalysts for sustainable renewable energy storage
  • Nanomaterials for sensor based applications
