Aims and Scope
This international book series publishes peer reviewed proceedings, edited volumes and monographs on all aspects of energy research and development. Understanding the generation and usage of various sorts of energy is crucial for crafting and maintaining a sustainable habitable planet. Topics therefore include different methods of energy generation: fossil, biomass, hydrogen; nuclear, solar, wind and hydro; energy storage and conversion; energy grids; energy in buildings; energy management and balancing; integrated systems; island systems; renewable and green energy; energy efficiency and conservation; cooling; environmental and mechanical engineering issues relating to energy; economic and policy issues relating to energy; energy transition and energy data collecting and analysis. Interdisciplinary contributions covering technical, managerial, environmental and policy aspects of energy are encouraged as these match the questions our society asks and the solutions it demands from research.
