Electrification Magazine

IEEE Electrification Magazine is a quarterly magazine dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.

Electrification Magazine Submission Information:

For consideration for publication in IEEE Electrification Magazine, articles should be submitted as Word files in single-column, double-spaced format. All text components of the article should be included, with all graphics, tables, etc. shown in their desired location within the body of the article. Articles should be between 6 & 8 pages, corresponding to approximately 5,000 words and included graphics.

Articles may be submitted via e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  with a copy to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  The submittal should include the corresponding author's name, complete mailing address, phone, fax and e-mail.

Following approval, submit text/graphics files (via e-mail or on CD), a hard copy of the complete article, and a signed IEEE Copyright Form to: Electrification Magazine, Attention: Maria Proetto, 445 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA or via e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . If submitting the final files via e-mail, please indicate in the subject of the e-mail “Final File Submission of Accepted Article and the Corresponding Author’s Last Name.” Text files must include all text components of the article (e.g., body of the article, figure captions, tables, sidebars, if any, and brief author biographies), and should be submitted in Microsoft Word. Separate graphics files (300 dpi minimum) should be submitted in encapsulated postscript (.eps), TIFF (.tif), or JPG format; name each file according to its relationship to the article, e.g., fig1.eps, fig2.tif, etc. Your article will be forwarded to IEEE Magazines, where it will be edited and produced. Prior to publication, you will receive a review copy of your edited text for final approval.

Please note that a magazine article differs considerably from a technical paper, which is prepared for transactions status. Magazine articles do not contain abstracts, keywords, conclusions and references (though suggested "further readings" are acceptable). Generally speaking, magazine articles do not employ equations or formulas; they try to adhere to the adage "if it cannot be said in words, it does not belong in a magazine article." Also, as Electrification Magazine is a four-color publication, we prefer that articles be accompanied with graphics, photos, screen captures, etc. to enhance their content.

Global Changes

The Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. In the last 650,000 years, seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat have occurred, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago, marking the beginning of the modern climate era, and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives...
