Cover Story: Energy and Power Technology has the potential to contribute decisive elements to an “energy transition” which is accompanies by a new cooperative mindset on a planetary level. Beyond the (admittedly important) task of foresight and “looking into the future, we are called to create the future.
The former German chancellor Willy Brandt said: “The best way to predict the future is to design it”.
On a more general and paradigmatic level, the key points for a successful energy transition in the early stages are the associated new social patterns, virtual and real communities, online cooperation, i.e. social innovation in "co-creation". In the same vein, the well-known German physicist and author von Weizsäcker stated: "The ‘full world’ needs a new enlightenment", based on responsibility, altruism, community spirit and a pattern of perceiving the “we” instead of the “I”. The task of a transdisciplinary and synoptic energy science is to bring the transformative power of this general enlightenment down to earth during the ongoing energy transition.
Policy implications mainly contain the necessity to foster the energy transition in all its phases, namely by state funding in the initial phases and by regulating prices in advanced stages while maintaining social equilibrium.
Moreover, the policy-relevant link between open, democratic societies who reject using totalitarian methods and successful energy transition is highlighted for our international readership.View this paper.

The Effect of the Addition of Titanium Dioxide on Silicone Self-Adhesive Tapes

Received: 29 February 2024;  Published: 13 May 2024;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2402012


The investigation aimed to delve into the intricate relationship between the presence of titanium dioxide and the resulting alterations in the adhesive's behavior under different conditions. The focus extended beyond mere observation to understand how these additives interact with the adhesive matrix, potentially imparting beneficial attributes. Notably, the study delved into the optimization of thermal stability, the extension of the adhesive's functional lifespan, and the mitigation of shrinka [...]

Building Blocks for an Energy Transition

Received: 07 December 2023;  Published: 13 May 2024;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2402011


The present need for an energy transition in the wake of a global climate catastrophe led to the “EU green deal” which requires a transition of the energy system in all countries. This study aimis survey aims to identify strategies within such an energy transition based on global trend analyses and reports on available technologies for implementation. Based on a literature analysis of over 300 pieces (of feasibility studies and technology implementation reports with a focus on Central Europe) an [...]

Design and Techno-Economic Evaluation of a Hybrid Mini-grid System for an Academic Institution

Received: 26 September 2023;  Published: 03 April 2024;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2402010


Inadequate electricity supply is a global challenge that needs solutions. This situation has compelled the purchasing of fossil fuel-generating units for use in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors to generate electricity. However, using fossil fuel generating units cause greenhouse gas emissions, bringing about environmental pollution and ultimately resulting in climate change. In particular, educational institutions require adequate and reliable power supply to ensure proper learnin [...]

Local Authority Waste Management Strategies, the Circular Economy and the Generation of Energy from Waste in England

Received: 17 February 2024;  Published: 01 April 2024;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2402009


The purpose of this article is to examine the approach to waste management of local authorities in England, to investigate their strategic objectives, and to ascertain to what extent sustainability and circular economy practices are in evidence in this context. A qualitative, inductive research method is used, based on an examination of secondary documentation in three local authorities in England in Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle upon Tyne. The findings reveal considerable common ground with [...]
