Special Topics: Hydrogen Energy

The special topic calls for papers on Hydrogen Energy and such papers will appear in Energy Science and Technology as a special column.


Among various renewable energy sources, hydrogen is an important fuel for its high energy generation rate and water as the only byproduct and can be considered as an environmentally clean fuel. It has been widely used in many industrial applications. Hydrogen is a zero-emission fuel which uses electrochemical cells or combustion in internal engines, to power vehicles and electric devices. It is also used in the propulsion of spacecraft and can potentially be mass-produced and commercialized for passenger vehicles and aircraft. However, most of the hydrogen in the world is still being produced from fossil fuels, which have a negative impact on global warming. In this topic, we invite researchers to contribute original research and review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to advance the science and technology in this crucial and fast progressing area. The research on materials directly contributes to hydrogen technologies or on apparatus technology that enables hydrogen energy applications. Potential topical areas include, but are not limited to: hydrogen generation from different sources; Storage, distribution and refueling; hydrogen sustainability and economic viability.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Hydrogen Energy for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Hydrogen Energy” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Hydrogen Energy.
