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.

Steady‐state operating points of islanded virtual synchronous machine microgrid

  •  8 April 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Virtual swing bus algorithm: The graphical abstracts illustrate the virtual synchronous machine (VISMA) control scheme together with stationary operating points evaluation technique for an islanded microgrid. The novel concept employs the use of constant amplitude of virtual excitation and virtual torque localized to each VISMA unlike the droop bus approach that uses active and reactive power coefficients as major constant control parameters. The algorithm is modified accordingly when an outer power loop controller is added to improve the operational flexibility of the grid-connected inverters.

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.

Current status, challenges, and policy suggestions for coalbed methane industry development in China: A review

  •  1059-1074
  •  17 May 2019

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

In this paper, the main problems hindering CBM development in China are discussed to provide management suggestions for the government. These key problems include exploration and development techniques, the overlap of mining rights, management, financial supporting policy, investment environment, regulations, and market conditions.
