Aims & Scope

The scope is intentionally broad and the journal recognises the complexity of issues and challenges relating to energy conversion and storage, alternative fuel technologies and environmental science. For work to be published it must be linked to the energy-environment nexus and be of significant general interest to our community-spanning readership. All scales of studies and analysis, from impactful fundamental advances, to interdisciplinary research across the (bio)chemical, (bio/geo)physical sciences and chemical engineering disciplines are welcomed.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Solar energy conversion and photovoltaics
  • Solar fuels and artificial photosynthesis
  • Fuel cells
  • Hydrogen storage and (bio) hydrogen production
  • Materials for energy systems
  • Capture, storage and fate of CO2, including chemicals and fuels from CO2
  • Catalysis for a variety of feedstocks (for example, oil, gas, coal, biomass and synthesis gas)
  • Biofuels and biorefineries
  • Materials in extreme environments
  • Environmental impacts of energy technologies
  • Global atmospheric chemistry and climate change as related to energy systems
  • Water-energy nexus
  • Energy systems and networks
  • Globally applicable principles of energy policy and techno-economics
