Aims and Scope: Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy

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
 Batteries
 Supercapacitors
 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)
 Biofuels
 Carbon dioxide sequestration and conversion

MATERIALS for energy saving
