Special Topics: Renewable Energy

The special topic calls for papers on Renewable Energy and such papers will appear in Energy Science and Technology as a special column.


Renewable energy is a promising energy source in order not to have emission of carbon dioxide at the time of power generation. Although renewable energy is mainly exploited photovoltaic energy or wind energy, however it changes by climate conditions; stabilization of electric power is needed. The smart grid attracts attention as research on stabilization and effective use of renewable energy in recent years, and research on a smart grid is advanced in the world. As core technology of smart grid, power electronics, optimization technology, demand response, smart meter, large storage battery, cooperative control, etc. are needed, and it is technology indispensable to large-scale introduction of renewable energy. In this special topic, the contribution of the paper about the circumference technology for large-scale introduction of renewable energy is expected broadly.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Renewable Energy for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Renewable Energy” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Renewable Energy.
