Energy Journal was established by students at Imperial College London and the London School of Economics to promote the energy sector.
The Journal is a collaboration which aims to keep people informed about the industry whilst sharing all aspects of knowledge across the universities involved. It has attracted contributions from those who love to engage in learning and discussion about the energy industry, including a large proportion of Imperial ChemEng students. Overall approximately a quarter of the entire team across both universities has a chemical engineering background.
Yet chemical engineering authors do not limit their submissions to the oil and gas sector, as pieces provide a wide range of context to the energy industry. Some are inspired by research topics close to the department, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), covered by both Humera Ansari, a second-year PhD student and Mingchuan Zheng, second-year undergraduate. Others cover broader aspects of the industry, such as electric cars, as discussed by Muhammad Waabis, second-year undergraduate. Energy Journal showcases the breadth of knowledge that students acquire during their time in the department to like-minded people.
However, it’s not only students who get involved. Researchers and industry professionals have the opportunity to write for the Journal. In addition to energy experts at Shell and Statoil, Chemical Engineering staff Dr Kai Wang and Dr Christos Markides have written an article about their research in the Clean Energy Process Laboratory, adding an extra dimension so readers can learn about novel research right on the cutting edge.
Thanks to the hard work of authors and editors, Energy Journal has gone from strength-to-strength since its launch and become a strong presence on both campuses, publishing 1500 copies in the last year and appearing at the student-led G3 Summit conference.
So, what does the future hold for the Energy Journal? In the upcoming year, the Journal will establish itself at University College London, adding another perspective to the mix. There will be exclusive Energy Journal events and new content only available on the Energy Journal website, as well as more copies printed across all universities.
