  • Introduction

    Recently, solar energy systems have attracted significant attention as part of the renewable energy drive to protect our environment. Solar energy conversion and enhancement of the heat transfer characteristics of the solar thermal systems have significant impact on the energy usage, and environmental as well as energy saving. The use of different nanofluids enhances the heat transfer characteristics, efficiency and performance of the solar thermal systems and thermal properties of heat transfer fluids compared with conventional fluids. This special issue will focus on research and review papers investigating different applications of nanofluids in solar thermal engineering systems include but not limited to solar collectors and thermal energy storage systems and the effects of nanofluids on the thermal characteristics, behavior, efficiency, of solar thermal systems and hybrid systems.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Solar thermal system
    2. PV solar panels and PV-Thermal
    3. CSP collectors
    4. Nanofluids
    5. Thermal storage
    6. Magnetic field and nanofluids

    Relevant topics that would be considered for inclusion in this special issue include, but are not limited to:
