About the cover

Nanotechnology is playing an increasing role in solving the world energy crisis. Platinum nanoparticles are ideal candidates as a novel technology for low platinum automotive catalysts and for single-nano technology research. Our nanoparticle technology is a next generation solution. However, during the process of developing this technology, we have achieved a number of discrete technology breakthroughs that have allowed us to develop a commercial solution for today's renewable hydrogen market (Ref: Balasubramanian et al. Nanoparticle technology is a novel alternative for clean energy, Discovery Energy, 2013, 2(4), 3), (Image: sciencedaily.com).

Discovery Energy is an international journal published by Discovery publication. The journal intends to be a prime source of information for analysis, reviews and evaluations related to energy, energy systems, energy resources, technologies, policies and interactions, energy planning and management. The journal features book reviews, reports on conferences, details of forthcoming meetings, letters to the editor and special interest topics. All manuscripts are subject to reviews to assure accuracy, clarity, and long-term value.
