Special Issue on: "Nanomanufacturing in Energy"

Nanomanufacturing will provide our power industry with new, more precise, less expensive, more energy-efficient and more flexible ways of making products. Like steam engines, electricity and transistors, nanotechnology is a powerful enabling technology, with disruptive impacts in many aspects of our daily lives. It can provide our manufacturing base with new production methods and enable products that themselves are more energy-efficient than are comparable products of today. Increasing energy conversion efficiency reduces carbon dioxide emissions per unit of output, thereby directly supporting global climate change mitigation.

There have been rapid developments in recent years in the nanomanufacturing of energy devices, such as new nanostructured materials, new manufacturing techniques and new types of devices for energy harvesting and storage. Nanoprinting techniques and flexible devices for energy are examples of recent achievements in this rapid;y developing field.

This special issue will bring together researchers in the field of nanomanufacturing from various sectors including basic sciences, applied development research and industrial research. Its focus is on new manufacturing technologies and new devices for energy harvesting and storage.

We invite manuscripts that are methodologically rigorous and conceptually correct, and which offer new insights into current issues in nanomanufacturing in energy.
