Energy and Environment

A section of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).

Section Information

The “Energy and Environment” Section covers all topics at the interface of energy and the environment that are of interest to the science and engineering communities. Special focus is given to progress in research and applications associated with the development and evaluation of technological and administrative pathways that minimize the environmental impacts of energy life cycles. 


Example topic areas within the scope of our journal's “Energy and Environment” Section are listed below. This list is neither exhaustive nor exclusive:

  • Advanced Technologies for Environmentally Friendly Energy Systems
