Energy Materials: Materials Science and Engineering for Energy Systems
Energ Mater Mater Sci Eng Energ Syst
ISSN (printed): 1748-9237. ISSN (electronic): 1748-9245.
The scope of Energy Materials is inclusive. The journal covers thermal and gas turbines; renewable power (wind, wave, tidal, hydro, solar and geothermal); fuel cells (low and high temperature); materials issues relevant to biomass and biotechnology; nuclear power generation (fission and fusion); and the transmission and storage of the energy produced. As well as publishing high quality peer-reviewed research, Energy Materials will promote discussion of issues common to all sectors, through commissioned reviews and commentaries. There will be coverage of energy economics and policy, and broader social issues, since the political and legislative context influence research and investment decisions. With the important exceptions of hydrogen generation and storage, which will form an integral part of any future hydrogen economy, and materials aspects of biomass/biotechnology, it is not the intention of the journal to consider the extraction, refining/processing, and transport of fuels prior to their use for energy generation. The comprehensive coverage of Energy Materials will embrace all materials issues relating to future energy needs.
