IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy and Regulation

We are very pleased to announce that the IEEE Power & Energy Society is launching the new IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy and Regulation effective from January 2023. It will be a fully on-line journal with four issues a year. This Transactions is a space where people who work on energy issues from the economics, engineering, and regulatory perspectives meet to develop better solutions. The ScholarOne Manuscripts submission site is open.

A Note from EiC, Daniel Kirschen, The University of Washington


IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy and Regulation is a rigorously peer-reviewed journal disseminating relevant knowledge and developments in the organization and structure of rapidly evolving multi-energy supply and demand systems. It publishes articles on energy system frameworks, policies, and regulations, such as multi-tier energy market structures, pricing policies, and auction rules. The Journal promotes the decarbonization of supply, distribution, and demand in multi-energy systems, and drives robust and sustainable investments in resilient and green energy systems considering all stakeholders’ needs. Published articles are supported by detailed engineering, economic and policy analyses and assessments of the topics discussed, based on relevant principles, models, techniques and tools.

The following topics are within the scope of the IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy and Regulation:

Energy Markets

    • Economics and assessment of energy markets
    • Design, clearing, pricing and settlement of markets for energy, capacity, flexibility and ancillary services
    • Interactions between markets
    • Economics of renewables, demand response and storage
    • Retail electricity markets
    • Retail tariff design
    • Peer-to-peer and local trading
    • Market participation, market power and market monitoring
    • Congestion management and redispatch
    • Risk management
    • Impact on energy markets of environmental policies such as constraints, emissions trading, and renewables support mechanisms
    • Investments in market assets
    • Bidding strategies
    • Energy finance
    • Emissions trading
    • Water/energy nexus

Energy Policy

    • Policies of rural electrification, microgrids and rural development
    • Net-zero economics and policy
    • Energy, climate, and environmental justice
    • Impacts of society-scale electrification on the electric power sector
    • Incentives for system development
    • Impact assessments of energy policies
    • Multi-energy systems and market coupling
    • Policies to support innovations in the energy sector
    • Development of data and scenarios for system expansion


    • Network cost allocation and tariff design
    • Regulation of network monopolies
    • Rate design and Incentive regulation
    • Cost-benefit analysis of network investments
    • Impact assessments of regulations
    • Market power and market monitoring
    • Transmission and distribution expansion and planning
    • Integrated resource planning
    • Economics of reliability and resiliency.

The following are outside the scope of the IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy and Regulation:

    • Papers whose primary focus is the development of an analysis or optimization technique and address energy markets, policy, and regulation issues only in an incidental manner.

Peer Review

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual ( Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind or double-blind peer review process. For a single-blind peer review process, the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. For a double-blind peer review process, the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors and the identities of the authors are not known to the reviewers. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.

Open Access

This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission.

The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author at the time the manuscript is accepted. If selected, the OA fee of $2,195 must be paid before the article is published in the journal. If you have unusual circumstances about this, please contact the Editor-in-Chief. Any other applicable charges (such as the overlength page charge) will be billed separately once the manuscript formatting is complete but prior to the publication.

The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No OA payment is required.
