About the Stanford Energy Journal

What is the Stanford Energy Journal?

The Stanford Energy Journal is an online publication by the Stanford Energy Club focused on pressing issues relating to energy and the environment. The Journal is published online and features student authors as well as the work of experts in science & technology, business, law, and policy. We seek to share diverse viewpoints to drive and inform the conversation about energy and sustainability on campus and off, and to bring to light novel solutions to issues within energy and the environment.

History of the Stanford Energy Journal

Kevin Hettrich's energy-related coursework across multiple engineering departments and the business school convinced him that interdiciplinary conversations and collaboration provided opportunities for novel insights and solutions to difficult problems. He believed that a multi-disciplinary, student-run journal focused on energy and the environment could both inspire and inform this collabroation. Riddhima Gandhi and Kristin Landry professionalized the idea, using their editorial backgrounds to design and build out the journal’s editorial process. James Mwaura completed the founding team, contributing his background in programming and journalism.
