The Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy (JRSE) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal covering specific areas of renewable and sustainable energy relevant to the physical science and engineering communities. Starting with volume 12, the journal will increasingly focus on discoveries related to weather-dependent renewable generation (solar and wind).

Topics of interest to JRSE include:

  • Energy meteorology and energy climatology
  • Atmospheric physics as pertained to solar and wind energy utilization
  • Weather-dependent energy science and engineering
  • Renewable energy resource assessment
  • Energy and climate
  • Solar energy for power generation (PV, CSP, CPV)
  • Wind energy: wind farms, rotors and blades, on- and offshore wind conditions, aerodynamics, fluid dynamics
  • Distributed energy generation and utility scale power systems
  • Power systems modeling: renewable energy integration in regional grids and micro-grids
  • Energy efficient buildings: power management
  • Power-to-X (P2X, P2Y)
  • Marine and hydroelectric energy: dams, tides, waves
  • Biomass for energy sector decarbonization

Topics of less interest, but for which exceptional papers may be considered for publication in JRSE, include:

  • Transportation: alternative vehicle technologies, plug-in technologies, other
  • Bioenergy: biofuels, biomass conversion, artificial photosynthesis
  • Renewable energy economics and policy
  • Small-scale renewable energy devices

The Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy (JRSE) is an online-only journal dedicated to publishing significant advances covering aspects of renewable and sustainable energy relevant to the physical science and engineering communities. As a web-based journal that publishes articles quickly, JRSE is responsive to the many new developments expected in these fields. The journal has a strong focus on integration of disciplines for renewable power technologies at global scales that have the potential to mitigate abrupt climate change. The interdisciplinary approach of the publication ensures that the editors draw from authors worldwide and across a diverse range of active and expanding fields. JRSE is published online bimonthly (6 issues per year).
