Meet the Editor

Tomas KabergerTomas 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. Read Tomas' interview with ChemViews magazine about current trends and challenges of the global energy industry, his career path, and Energy Science & Engineering. Below is his introductory statement for ESE:

"In the last few years, oil prices have increased dramatically, climate policies have been introduced and nuclear power experiences have changed expectations of conventional nuclear power. Modern bioenergy applications have evolved, while prices of wind and solar energy technologies have further changed the conditions of the energy industry.

With little experience, research into the new technologies and energy systems evolving under these new economic conditions is important for investors and other actors in the energy sector. Energy Science & Engineering should take a leading position in making relevant research results available fast and efficiently. And not least, globally available with the benefit of being an open access journal.

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

I look forward to an interesting time as editor!"
