ASME Launches New Journal With Focus On Clean Energy

Editor issues call for papers on batteries, fuel cells and other electrochemical energy conversion storage technologies

NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2016 – Engineers and scientists will soon have a new journal in which to share breakthroughs with their technical communities and the world. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) new Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage will launch in February 2016 with a focus on a cleaner future through batteries, fuel cells and other energy conversion and storage technologies.

“This is a very active research, development and commercialization area. Government and industry have challenged engineers and scientists to create new ‘greener’ renewable technology that can meet society’s needs for energy conversion and storage. We believe this new journal will be a central source of technical information in the rapidly growing energy marketplace,” said Wilson K. S. Chiu, Ph.D., of the University of Connecticut, Editor and ASME member. 

A publication of ASME, the Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage replaces the ASME Journal of Fuel Cell Science and Technology. Under the leadership of a new and expanded editorial board, this new journal will target a fast review time while continuing to improve publication quality. This new journal reflects the latest scientific thinking on energy conversion and storage technology, and includes batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, distributed energy, alternative fuels, carbon capture & utilization, and solar energy.

The bi-monthly publication will report on a wide range of disciplines impacting the research and development of electrochemical energy conversion and storage systems, from fundamental electrochemistry and materials, to engineering design, analysis and manufacturing. 

Peer-reviewed articles in the Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage will cover a diverse set of topics related to energy storage and conversion technologies. Topics covered include reliability, damage tolerance, safety, and environmental control – important factors for advancing the technology to the R&D and commercialization stage. 

Papers for the Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage are invited from researchers, industry and government agencies. For more information, please go to: https://journaltool.asme.org/Content/JournalDescriptions.cfm?journalId=30&Journal=JEECS
