New Specialty Section “Hydrogen Storage and Production” now open for submissions

The Frontiers in Energy Research team are pleased to announce the launch of a new specialty section Hydrogen Storage and Production.

The new section Hydrogen Storage and Production is now open for submissions, and is led by Specialty Chief Editor Dr Andreas Borgschulte, from the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology.

As part of the “Frontiers in” journal series, Frontiers in Energy Research offers:– Interactive and collaborative review to ensure quality, rigor, and fairness– World-class editorial boards for all specialty sections– Open Access for maximum visibility and discoverability– Advanced article-level analytics and demographics to track reach and impact, including social media buzz– Fast publication, with an average of 84 days from submission to publication– Editors and reviewers disclosed on all published articles for maximum transparency– Commenting systems enabled on all articles to boost post-publication feedback

At present the editorial board Hydrogen Storage and production is composed of the following Associate Editors:

Andrea Baldi, Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research, NetherlandsAndre Heel, ZHAW – Institute of Materials and Process Engineering, SwitzerlandZbigniew Lodziana, Polish Academy of Sciences, PolandBenjamin Probst, University of Zurich, SwitzerlandNicholas Stadie, ETH Zurich, SwitzerlandPetra Szilagyi, University of Greenwich, UKClaudia Zlotea, CNRS, France

The transition from a fossil energy based society towards a sustainable one relies on the technology to efficiently produce and store an energy carrier from renewable energy. Although various possibilities are discussed, hydrogen and hydrogen derived energy carriers have the highest potential of fulfilling the energy needs of society and the constraints given by the supply of renewable energy production. This includes energy for transport and for bridging seasonal difference in energy consumption and supply, to mention only two examples.

Hydrogen production by electrolysis from renewable energy has been demonstrated on the lab scale as well as pilot scale, but efficiency issues, up-scaling and infrastructure implementation need further research activities. Hydrogen can be stored in various ways; here, a clear winning technology has yet to be defined. This specialty section aims at reflecting current trends in research and development in hydrogen production and storage from fundamental research to engineering. In particular we welcome interdisciplinary research from physicists, chemists, and engineers as needed, e.g., in hydrogen production by solar-water splitting. The transition towards a sustainable energy society needs more than technology: Frontiers in Energy Research welcomes input from researchers working on the cultural and social aspects of the energy turnaround.

The “Frontiers in” journal series, supported by over 230,000 leading researchers worldwide, has already published 37,000 peer-reviewed articles across over 50 journals.

We are currently considering applications to join the editorial board of Hydrogen Storage and Production. To apply for an editorial role, or find out more information about Frontiers, please contact: We look forward to hearing from you.
