Lecture Notes – Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy

In order to contribute to the training of young scientists working in the energy sector or intending to do so, the European and the Italian Physical Societies started the Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy.
The 4th Course, "Advances in basic energy issues", was organized in 2017 in Varenna.
These proceedings will be published soon both on paper and on-line open-access in EPJ Web of Conferences.
