Nature Energy – Launching January 2016

The provision of energy is a key issue at the heart of modern society: where do we get it from, how do we use it, and is there enough of it for what we want? Our growing thirst for energy must be matched by its supply, and that supply must be sustained. Tackling these challenges is an essential part of many fields of research – both in the natural and social and behavioural sciences – and is the focus of multi-billion dollar global industries.

Launching in January 2016, Nature Energy will be dedicated to exploring all aspects of this on-going discussion, from the generation and storage of energy, to its distribution and management, the needs and demands of the different actors, and the impacts that energy technologies and policies have on societies. We have a particular interest in studies that advance our knowledge and inform the development of next-generation technologies and solutions. Nature Energy will provide a forum for all parties active at the frontiers of energy to come together and learn about the different facets of this sector.

Nature Energy is interested in research from the natural, behavioural and social sciences.
