The first issue of Energy and Climate Change, co-edited by Professor Wei Yiming of Beijing University of technology and Professor Leon Clarke of the University of Maryland and published by Elsevier publishing house, has been online in December 2020 and can be viewed and downloaded free of charge before June 1, 2021.

Energy and its closely related climate change issues have become the focus of global political, academic, business, and public attention. Energy development and utilization are one of the main causes of environmental pollution and climate change. It is an urgent problem for all countries to correctly handle energy development and utilization, environmental protection, and climate change. The cross fields of energy and climate change cover a wide range, including economic and social development and culture, science and technology, environmental development, and so on. Although many journals specialize in energy technology and systems, climate change, and solutions, there is a lack of interdisciplinary journals dedicated to identifying practical energy system solutions to address the challenges of climate change. After more than two years of active exploration, discussion, and final implementation with Elsevier publishing house, Energy and Climate Change, released in November 2019, is dedicated to publishing innovative and systematic interdisciplinary research in the multidisciplinary field of energy and climate change. It aims to provide an exchange platform covering research fields from energy production and storage, cause of climate change to energy technology, climate change, and the impact of energy and climate policies on the social economy. It also encourages communication and dialogue among scientists, engineers, economists, and policymakers working in the related fields.

Under the organization of chief editors, Professor Wei Yiming and Professor Leon Clarke, 27 scholars with high international academic reputation and influence from 18 countries jointly formed a journal editorial board with perfect structure and reasonable structure. The journal is now collecting high-quality research results in the cross-field of energy and climate change.
