  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    MATERIALS FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the SpringerOpen brand.

    Energy is the single most valuable resource for human activity and the basis for all human progress. Materials play a key role in enabling technologies that can offer promising solutions to achieve renewable and sustainable energy pathways for the future.

    MATERIALS FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY has been established as an Open Access journal to be the world's foremost interdisciplinary forum for publication of research on all aspects of the study of materials for the deployment of renewable and sustainable energy technologies. MATERIALS FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY covers experimental and theoretical aspects of materials and prototype devices for sustainable energy conversion, storage, and saving, together with materials needed for renewable fuel production. Topics include:

    MATERIALS for renewable energy storage and conversion
     Fuel cells
     Hydrogen storage
     Photovoltaics and solar cells

    MATERIALS for renewable and sustainable fuel production
     Hydrogen production and fuel generation from renewables (catalysis)
     Solar-driven reactions to hydrogen and fuels from renewables (photocatalysis)
     Carbon dioxide sequestration and conversion

    MATERIALS for energy saving
     Novel illumination sources for efficient lighting
     Energy saving in buildings

    MATERIALS modeling and theoretical aspects

    Advanced characterization techniques of MATERIALS

    MATERIALS FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY publishes reviews, original research articles, rapid communications, and perspectives. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed for scientific quality.

    MATERIALS FOR RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY is an Open Access journal supported by King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology.
