We foster transdisciplinary collaboration between researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to promote an equitable, community-led transition to net zero.
We believe in a cleaner, fairer, and more connected world. We highlight innovative, sustainable energy research; champion diversity of thought and the practice of inclusion; and create opportunities for the cross pollination of ideas.
The best home for your best work
Our commitment to authors: We will give you the support and visibility you need to ensure that your energy research is read, cited, and reused.
Every year, we accept and publish more than 470,000 journal articles. Publishing in an Elsevier journal starts with finding the right journal for your paper. If you already know the journal to which you want to submit, you can enter the title directly in the find a journal search box. Alternatively, you can match the abstract(opens in new tab/window) of your article to a journal.
A cleaner, more sustainable world requires new, innovative thinking supported by rigorous energy research.
How has research from the Global South impacted the energy transition in the past five years? The “Pathways to Net Zero: The Impact of Clean Energy Research” explores how net zero research in the Global South is contributing to a clean energy future. The ambition of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to tackle climate change requires a global effort. The Global South is likely to be disproportionally affected and has an important role to play in realizing this target.
Global problems require global solutions and that means diversity in thought, perspective, and approach.
Article digests summarise research articles from a selection of journals within Elsevier’s Energy portfolio in a clear and concise manner for wider usage, increasing their discoverability among the general public, media and non-specialists.
Facilitating connections within and between disciplines, across regions, and at all career stages is key to interdisciplinary research that can help us achieve the sustainable development goals.
