International Journal of Energy Production and Management

Modern societies require an ever increasing amount of energy resources, adding strain to the world economy and creating technological, as well as socio-political, challenges. 

The International Journal of Energy Production and Management aims to address the issues raised above and thus act as an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners from around the globe working on a wide variety of topics related to the future of energy production and management in a changing world. 

The Journal covers all aspects of energy research, development and recovery from both primary and renewable sources; power generation, storage and distribution; planning and management. It deals with the comparison of conventional energy sources, particularly hydrocarbons, with a number of alternative ways of producing energy, based on renewable resources such as solar, hydro, wind and geothermal, and by applying new technologies. 

Papers on energy use are welcomed, including industrial processes, embedded energy contents of materials, such as those used in the built environment, requirements in transportation, ICT and all other energy-related activities. 

The changes required to progress from an economy mainly based on hydrocarbons to one taking advantage of sustainable energy resources are massive and require considerable scientific research as well as the development of advanced engineering systems. Such progress demands close collaboration between different disciplines in order to arrive at optimum solutions.
