Wiley launches new interdisciplinary review WIREs Energy and Environment

Hoboken, NJAugust 1, 2012John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the launch of a new interdisciplinary review publication, WIREs Energy and Environment, publishing online this month.

The broad scope of energy research demands collaboration between different disciplines of science and technology, and strong interaction between engineering, physical and life scientists, economists, sociologists and policy-makers.

WIREs Energy and Environment is part of Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs), unique hybrids of encyclopedias and journals which emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in research and education. The publication will provide a much-needed authoritative resource addressing key topics spanning bioenergy, conventional energy and fuels, energy and climate, energy and materials, energy efficiency, energy innovations, energy planning, energy sustainability, energy systems, fuel cells and hydrogen, solar energy, and wind power.

WIREs Energy and Environment is edited by Peter Lund, Aalto University, Finland, and John Byrne, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, University of Delaware.

"Understanding the essence of energy and its numerous connections to society and the environment requires viewing it from many perspectives," say Lund and Byrne. "Multidisciplinary thinking will be of the utmost importance in coming decades in evolving from a fossil fuel-based to low-carbon economy to find the best and optimal solutions for the society as a whole."

A key contributor to the inaugural issue of WIREs Energy and Environment is Nobel Laureate Dr. Rajendra Pachauri. In his article 'The Way Forward in Climate Change Mitigation' Dr. Pachauri advocates greater involvement by not-for-profit organizations and development agencies in promoting sustainable energy use.

"Transforming scientific discoveries into practical solutions requires the integration of different technologies and disciplines," Lund notes. "Interdisciplinary thinking is invariably the key to success."
