Special Issue Introduction

Addressing the escalating challenges of global climate change, surging energy demands, and decarbonizing energy systems necessitates the pursuit of sustainable and efficient energy solutions. Within this context, thermal energy management, storage, and utilization are vital to boosting energy efficiency, incorporating renewable energy sources, and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Advanced materials with enhanced thermal properties can significantly improve the performance of electronic devices, thermal energy storage (TES) systems, thermal insulators, and systems designed for capturing, converting, and utilizing thermal energy. These materials range from semiconductors, phase change materials, advanced ceramics and composites, hydrogels, porous materials, and more. This Special Issue is dedicated to showcasing the cutting-edge technologies and advancements in advanced materials for thermal energy management, storage, and utilization, ultimately contributing to the goal of a sustainable energy ecosystem.

The scope of the Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
1. Materials for efficient utilization and conversion of low-grade thermal energy, such as thermoelectric materials and irradiation cooling;
2. Materials for thermal insulation under extreme temperatures, such as aerogel and porous materials;
3. Functional materials for thermal switches, such as ferroelectric materials, ferromagnetic materials, and polymers;
4. Emerging materials for AI chips of the post-Moore era, such as 2D semiconducting materials;
5. Materials for thermal/cold energy storage, such as phase change materials;
6. Materials for water purification and solar desalination, such as carbon materials, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), and hydrogels.
