About This Topic

The rapid increase in building energy consumption is one of the most pressing problems we face at the moment. Recent advances in various fields of nanomaterials are making them up-and-coming candidates for achieving energy efficiency and sustainable operation in building sector. There are numerous mechanisms by which the integration of nanomaterials can improve building energy performance. These include, for example, facilitation of improved energy harvesting and conversion efficiencies, enhanced energy storage rates, and improved building envelope properties. We invite authors to contribute original research articles or comprehensive review articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the utilization of nanomaterials for highly efficient, novel devices relevant to applications in renewable energy and green building applications. This special issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from nanosynthesis to the design and characterization of energy systems and technologies with nanomaterial integration. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Nanomaterials development, synthesis, and fabrication for renewable energy and green building applications;
  2. Novel nanotechnologies for efficient energy harvesting, conversion and storage systems;
  3. Design and preparation of novel nanostructures, nanocomposites, nanocoatings and nanostructured surfaces for improved energy harvesting and conversion efficiencies;
  4. Environmentally friendly and easy-to-apply techniques for energy-related nanomaterials processing;
  5. Nanomaterial-based technologies for energy efficiency and green buildings.

A Comparative Study of Structural, Optical and Electrical Properties of Fe-ZnO Nanoparticles Synthesized by Precipitation and Microwave Method for Photovoltaic Applications

Received: 12 May 2021;  Published: 04 August 2021;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2103035


Iron doped ZnO (Fe-ZnO) nanoparticles were synthesized using two techniques that are economical as well as scalable to yield tunable properties of nanoparticles for facilitating down conversion in an absorbing layer of a solar cell. To evaluate the suitability of Fe-ZnO nanoparticles prepared by two deposition methods, we present [...]

Damage Mechanics of Carbon Nanotubes

Received: 27 October 2020;  Published: 10 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2102021


A robust mathematical method for the characterization of damage in carbon nanotubes is presented the presentation here is limited to elasticity. In this regard, the second and third order elastic stiffnesses are employed. All this is based on damage mechanics. The hypotheses of elastic strain equivalence and elastic energy equivalence are [...]
