Über diese Zeitschrift

This journal publishes papers that aid in the development, demonstration, and commercialization of cleaner products and processes as well as effective environmental policy strategies. As its title suggests, the journal has two major thrusts: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy.

The Clean Technology thrust addresses the science and engineering of clean technologies. Moreover, it examines mathematical and computer-based methods and models for designing, analyzing, and measuring the cleanliness of products and processes. The Environmental Policy thrust covers research advances in scientific, social, behavioral, and economics disciplines that are relevant to complex environmental policy issues.

In addition to research papers, the journal offers policy-oriented commentaries from world renowned leaders in environmental technology and policy research. It also features special issues focusing on topics of international concern.

Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy will present the following yearly awards as nominated by the Review board:
1. Best Paper award - The recipient will be awarded a plaque and a onetime monetary prize of
EUR 1000. In the case that the recognized paper has multiple authors, each author will receive a plaque while the prize of EUR 1000 will be shared equally among them.
2. Outstanding Paper award - The recipient(s) will be awarded a plaque.
Members of the editorial board who are nominated for the best paper award will not receive any monetary compensation.

NEW - Brief Reports
A desirable means of reporting innovative methods, tools, processes, and theoretical treatments on aspects of clean technologies or sustainability. This section is being offered for faster publication of newer developments. For more information and details please see the instructions for authors in the right menu.

NOTE: Change in Instructions for Authors:

Herausforderung Elektromobilität für die Niederspannungsnetze – ein Bericht

Die stark zunehmende Zahl der Elektrofahrzeuge in Vorarlberg, Österreich, stellt die Niederspannungsnetze vor große Herausforderungen. Bereits bei geringen Durchdringungsraten kann es zu Grenzwertverletzungen bezüglich der Spannungen und Kabelauslastungen kommen. Besonders die steigenden Leistungsspitzen werden zukünftig hohe Netzinvestitionen mit sich bringen. Erste weitreichende Untersuchungen zeigen, dass eine hohe Durchdringungsrate nur integriert werden kann, wenn Ladestrategien weiterentwickelt und schrittweise in die Niederspannungsnetze etabliert werden. Um die Elektromobilität volkswirtschaftlich einbinden zu können, müssen dazu alle Interessensvertreter ihren Beitrag leisten.  Jetzt gratis downloaden!
