Process and Energy Systems Engineering welcomes high-quality contributions related to the research of tools, technologies and methods for process and energy systems engineering. It targets the research efforts on the grand challenge of energy efficiency and management considering the rational use and reuse of energy and other resources, the efficient conversion and storage of energy, carbon dioxide capture and valorization, the integration of renewables and the large scale integration of complex energy systems.
The section solicits significant advances in areas including:
· Process system simulation, modeling, optimization and design (e.g. through mathematical programming, thermo- and exergo-economic and life cycle assessment approaches)
· Innovative usage of information technology (e.g. life-cycle environmental impact methods and thermodynamic concepts such as exergy, emergy and material flow analysis) and their use for the design and management of process and energy systems
· Decision support methods for the design and operation of process and energy systems.
The section covers the different aspects of the system engineering, considering the analysis, the design and the operation of process and energy systems. It welcomes therefore contributions in:
· Complex system control and integration (including measurements, system dynamics, reliability and safety issues)
· Management and decision support methodologies to cope with efficiency and uncertainties
· Design and management if supply chains applied to process and energy systems, with an emphasis on biomass, waste and bioproducts, and considering system wide life cycle approaches.
The complete energy chain is considered here, including energy and resources extraction and harvesting, energy conversion, energy distribution (e.g. steam cycles, district heating and cooling, grids), energy storage and supply of energy services. It thus covers the combined production of heat, cold and power, polygeneration systems, energy resource conditioning and the integration of renewable energy (e.g solar heat, geothermy, and biomass) into the global system.

Process and Energy Systems Engineering welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Process and Energy Systems Engineering, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Process and Energy Systems Engineering will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Energy Research.
