Vision

The Strategic Planning for Energy and the Environment (SPEE) international journal envisions publication of excellent, high quality and multi-faceted articles encompassing planning and policies and research and development in the field of energy and environment for global sustainability and harmony.

Background and Aims

The Strategic Planning for Energy and the Environment (SPEE) journal, which was formally published by Taylor & Francis, has archived and accumulated several decades of state-of-the-art and cutting-edge technologies and knowledge in the fields of energy and environment. It is currently published and managed by the Rivers Publisher with an Editorial Team lead by Editor in Chief Prof. Medani P. Bhandari. The journal thrives to publish high quality papers form both academic and professional fields. The main goal of the journal is publishing the highest quality articles, creating the knowledge hub within the Energy and Environment (EE) domain, and contributing to building our sustainable future. The Strategic Planning for Energy and the Environment (SPEE) journal aims regularly publishing the highest articles generated through research, field investigation, case studies, and other endeavors that keep highest importance within and beyond the Energy and Environment nexus.

The SPEE journal invites wide-range of multi-disciplinary articles covering policy arenas of energy and environment, energy and environmental governance; global regional and local approaches for energy production and consumption; interrelationships and linkages of energy and environment within socio-economic, human-altered, and natural settings. It also welcomes dialogue between the social, political, environmental, and other quarters, as the demand and supply of energy products are governed by national and international politics and justice. It gives very high emphasis on emerging science, technology and knowledge with regard to green and sustainable energy and how the emerging new scientific and technological advancements help further development of human society without harming both the local and global natural ecosystems of the planet. Broadly, journal aims to encourage new innovative ideas on energy and environmental engineering linked with the development, which can help to reduce the energy consumptions and environmental damages.

Purpose

The specific purpose of the SPEE is to foster scientific understanding of various linkages within the energy and environmental nexus, technological advancement, and enhanced relationships induced by technology in the global environment and society. The journal thrives to advancement of scientific and technological knowledge in combination with the analysis of the conditions of built and natural environments and their relationship or adaptation or rejections by stakeholders particularly in environmental governance and policy formation.

Scope

The scope of the SPEE journal is broad and multidimensional, including fundamental concepts in energy and environmental theories and practices, experiments, phenomenon analysis, implementation, and policies. Contributions to general theoretical approach to energy and the environment with reference to sustainability and development in the context of local, regional and global setting are also highly encouraged. The SPEE covers all topics at the core and the interfaces of energy and the environment nexus that are of interest to the science and professional communities. The journal focuses on those articles that provide sound knowledge base for basic and applied research associated with the development and evaluation of technological and administrative pathways that minimize environmental impacts of energy life cycles. Some of the trans-disciplinary areas within the scope of journal include,

  • energy and environment nexus including energy and environmental theories and practices,
  • green technologies,
  • environmental friendly energy systems,
  • low carbon energy production and use,
  • sustainable consumption of energy resources,
  • environmental impacts of energy production,
  • climate change-induced energy and environmental uncertainties,
  • interlinkages between energy and environmental resources and sustainability,
  • environmental governance, legislation, and environmental policies for sustainable energy production,
  • renewable and alternative energy resources,
  • energy, environment and socio-cultural nexus,
  • energy conservation, conservation, efficiencies, greenhouse gases,
  • biosphere, biodiversity, bioenergy, biofuels, and biomass,
  • climate change, energy conservation, deforestation, and ecosystem health,
  • emissions, air quality and atmospheric science,
  • environmental impact assessment,
  • recycling and waste management,
  • international treaties and initiatives in relation to energy, environment, and climate, and
  • sustainable development.
