Energy Studies Review, a publication of the DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University, is an applied energy policy journal published in Canada.

An interdisciplinary journal for energy analysts (published first in 1988), Energy Studies Review's major themes include energy policy, energy and the environment, energy technology, social impacts of energy utilization and surveys of experimental and theoretical approaches.

We also publish special issues devoted to specialized topics emerging from conferences or workshops devoted to particular themes. Articles in both English and French are welcome.

Energy Studies Review also hosts conferences and workshops. The most recent conference, "CONSERVATION & DEMAND MANAGEMENT IN A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUTURE", took place on Monday June 11, 2012 at the Ron Joyce Centre, McMaster University, Hamilton ON Canada. For more information on past conferences and future events, please go to our Conferences page.
