MRS Bulletin Energy Quarterly

EQ

Energy Quarterly (EQ) is a special section published in the March, June, September and December issues of MRS Bulletin dedicated to the challenges facing materials scientists in the quest for sustainable solutions to the world's energy problems. We aim to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the materials for energy field, for both experienced researchers and the general reader. EQ is available in our print edition of MRS Bulletin, where you can find it easily by flipping to the pages with the orange edge, and is also available FOR FREE ONLINE at the Cambridge University Press MRS Bulletin website. You DO NOT have to be a subscriber to MRS Bulletin to access this content—it is freely available to anyone with Internet access.

Materials for Energy blogThe Materials for Energy blog, a resource hosted by the MRS Bulletin's Energy Quarterly, has been formally re-launched under the management of the MRS Student Chapter at The University of Texas at Austin. It provides a forum to discuss the scientific issues surrounding all areas of materials for energy: basic research, scale-up and commercialization, deployment, environmental impact including raw materials acquisition, and disposal technologies.
