Insights from the Editorial Team

Anthony Doyle, Executive Editor, Springer Energy, Books

2020 has been an unprecedented year. However, as we move into 2021 and an eventual ‘new normal’ our societies’ and planet’s need for clean, safe and affordable energy will remain vital. As does the dissemination of cutting-edge and authoritative work from the world’s experts in energy, informing readers of current knowledge, creating a forum for the latest ideas and providing the rounded and considered coverage of developing fields for which books are ideal.
 
Springer’s book list in Energy is the world’s largest, ranging from materials and applied physics, through engineering, the environmental sciences, social sciences and business and management. We publish scientific monographs and edited books, as well as textbooks for students and authoritative reference works.
 
Key book series include Green Energy and Technology, which has published over 300 titles, and our flagship Lecture Notes in Energy. Adding to Springer’s select publication of conference proceedings is Springer Proceedings in Energy. New this year is Indoor Environment and Sustainable Building, adding to Springer’s book list in the built environment. An especially exiting new series is Sustainable Development Goals, reporting on research that contributes the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy. All welcome your book proposals.
