Meet the Editor

Tomas Kaberger

Tomas Kåberger earned his PhD in Physical Resource Theory and is professor of Industrial Energy Policy at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. He has held leading positions in energy companies and served for three years Director General of the Swedish Energy Agency.

The energy industry goes through a period of creative destruction: New technologies have evolved providing low-cost energy. As energy prices have fallen, old assets have had to be devaluated, and companies who used to be the biggest and most powerful suffer.

On the other hand, as both direct costs of providing energy and indirect environmental costs are reduced, this evolution creates benefits for the energy customers as well as the global society. Energy scientists and engineers may be proud of these achievements. Our journal has a role to play in this development.

Can it work? Does it work in reality? These are simple questions which often require the analysis of physical and economic conditions and system boundaries. We publish contributions, relevant to the present industrial activities as well as in the future, reporting perspectives, modelling results as well as industrial, technical and regional experiences that can help others in the energy sector.

Working with Energy Science and Engineering is a pleasure during this transformation!

Professor Tomas Kåberger, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
