Welcome to our collection of the most outstanding articles published in Energy Technology in the preceding twelve months. Energy Technology was launched in 2013 as a general applied energy journal, focusing on energy generation, conversion, storage, and distribution. The journal is listed in most important databases (including ISI Web of Knowledge) and its inaugural one-year Impact Factor was recently announced to be 2.824.
Articles selected for the Best of Energy Technology 2014 include reviews on flexible supercapacitors and oxide catalysts for biodiesel production, as well as interesting works on such diverse topics as sodium-ion battery materials, solution-processed photovoltaics, redox flow batteries, shale gas technology, and methanol for use as an organic energy carrier from carbon dioxide feedstocks.
Energy Technology is published on Wiley Online Library in twelve online issues per year, with articles available in EarlyView as soon as they are ready. Energy Technology is a fully electronic journal and offers optional open access through participating in Wiley’s OnlineOpen scheme.
Full details of the journal, including the Author Guidelines can be found on www.entechnol.de. The submission site can be accessed at http://www.editorialmanager.com/ente/.
Make sure to recommend the journal for online access to your librarian. Subscription information can be found here.
We hope that you will find the selection of articles as stimulating as we did, and we encourage you to continue submitting your best manuscripts to Energy Technology.
