Energy Science & Engineering is the home of high-impact fundamental and applied research on energy and supply and use. Published as a co-operative venture of Wiley and the SCI (Society of Chemical Industry), we are a sustainable energy journal dedicated to publishing research that will help secure an affordable and low carbon energy supply. In doing our part in solving this critical challenge, we aim to facilitate collaboration and spark innovation in energy research and development.

Research on optimization of conductivity of multilevel fractures in tight sandstone based on similar circuit principle

  •  27 May 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The post-pressure fracture network is equivalent to a high-permeability zone, and the reservoir numerical model is established to optimize the equivalent hydraulic conductivity of the fracture network. Based on the discrete element theory, the fracture expansion and its geometric parameters after volume fracturing of dense sandstone are simulated, and the equivalent hydraulic conductivity of the fracture network is optimized by combining with the theory of high-permeability zones. Drawing on the principle of hydropower similarity, the multistage fracture is equivalent to a circuit, and a three-stage circuit model is established. Combined with the numerical simulation results, the flow-conducting capacity of the cracks at all levels of the fracture network is optimized.

Preventive maintenance decision model of electric vehicle charging pile based on mutation operator and life cycle optimization

  •  22 May 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

By introducing a particle swarm optimization algorithm with mutation operators, the model can accurately identify potential faults in charging piles and construct a comprehensive operational status indicator system. Meanwhile, using lifecycle optimization methods, the model found the optimal balance between maintenance cost, maintenance effectiveness, and service life, effectively solving the conflict between optimal maintenance life and optimal opportunity maintenance life.

How green is blue hydrogen?

  •  1676-1687
  •  12 August 2021

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Blue hydrogen is the production of hydrogen from natural gas combined with carbon capture and storage. Commercial production so far is limited to just two facilities, but blue hydrogen is increasingly being promoted as a green, “low emissions” fuel. Here, we provide the first full lifecycle assessment of emissions from the production of blue hydrogen, including fugitive upstream methane emissions from the natural gas that is used. Far from being low carbon, we find quite large emissions that give blue hydrogen a larger greenhouse gas footprint than any fossil fuel.

Solar power technology for electricity generation: A critical review

  •  340-361
  •  28 September 2018

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

In this paper, both methods of electricity generation are reviewed and compared. Based on published studies, PV-based systems are more suitable for small-scale power generation. They are also capable of generating more electricity in a specific area in comparison with CSP-based systems. However, based on economic considerations, CSP plants are better in economic return.
