About this book

This books provides a comprehensive platform to the scientific, education and research communities working on various fields related to sustainable energy. It covers the exploration, generation and application of this area to meet societal needs as well as addressing global issues related to the environment. The content of this book presents research related to energy and how to tackle climate change as a comprehensive framework based on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The authors use the scientific method to analyze and deliver viable technical solutions, demonstrating how chemistry and engineering can be combined to solve technically challenging problems. While maintaining high scientific rigor, a quantitative approach is offered in select chapters to the study of energy related to our societies increasing need for electrical and chemical energy feedstocks.

About the authors

Yong-jun Gao is the Deputy Director of Clean Energy and Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Center, Zhejiang Yangtze River Delta. Since 2001, he has conducted leading-edge research in the fields of energy and environmental protection. He has won academic prizes in the China Nuclear Energy Association, the China Electricity Council, and the Science and Technology Management Innovation of State Power Investment Corporation Limited. His focus is on environmental energy policy, implementation of advanced sustainable energy technologies and workforce development.

Weixin Song is a Postdoctor Research Fellow of the STEM Group at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford, UK. He received his Ph.D. (2019) in Material Electrochemistry from Imperial College London, UK. He has been a member of the Centre for Doctoral Training of Advanced Characterisation of Materials and London Centre for Nanotechnology. He completed his BSc (2012) and MSc (2015) from Central South University, China. His research interest includes material electrochemistry and characterisation in the area of energy storage, electrocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis, particularly using the advanced techniques of electron microscopy and spectroscopy. He has participated in the SOLBAT and CATMAT projects funded by the Faraday Institution of the UK. He has published 21 first-author peer-reviewing papers, 18 licensed patents and one book chapter (Springer Publisher). He has received the highest student honour of Central South University (2014), the Imperial College President’s PhD Scholarship (2015), STFC Future Early Career Award (2016), Armourers & Brasiers Rolls-Royce Scheme Grant (2018), National Award for Outstanding Self-finance Students Abroad (2018), MPLS Enterprise Fellowship (2019) and Constance Fligg Tipper Centenary Memorial Prize (2020).

Jingbo (Louise) Liu received her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering (with a focus on materi^ 150 undergraduates and 35 graduate students.  She served as the National Science Foundation panelist & chair, journal editor, and also as a reviewer for dozens of journals. 

Dr. Liu participated in and directed more than 40 sponsored projects, supported by the NSF; R. Welch Foundation; Department of Education; Petroleum Research Fund of American Chemical Society (ACS); and TAMU Energy Institute & TAMU-Kingsville.  She published more than 100 journal articles, books, and book chapters. Being a Directed Energy Bio-effects Institute faculty fellow at the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and co-filed 2 AFRL patents to address clinical prevention and healthcare concerns.  Due to her leadership in chemical sciences and engineering, she was awarded the distinction of Chartered Scientist by the Science Council and Chartered Chemist by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).  Recently, she was elected (in the group of twelve) the 2021 Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Dr. Liu also holds Fellow Status with the International Association of Advanced Materials,  Vebleo (Science Engineering and Technology) Society, RSC Fellow, Invitation Fellow to the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and invitation Fellow and Israel Summer Faculty Fellow.
