Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy is a journal aimed at disseminating results of research on sustainable energy systems that can be integrated into the power transmission and/or distribution grid. The journal publishes original research on design, implementation, grid-integration and control of sustainable energy technologies and systems. The Transactions also welcomes manuscripts on design, implementation and evaluation of power systems that are affected by sustainable energy systems and devices.

 

IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy:

  • Battery and storage
  • Carbon capture from power generation
  • Combined heat and power
  • Electricity from Biomass
  • Energy efficiency
  • Fuel cells
  • Geothermal
  • Greenhouse Gas Mitigation
  • Grid interaction of sustainable energy sources
  • Hydroelectricity
  • Hydrogen technology
  • Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Small hydro design and applications
  • Solar photovoltaics
  • Solar thermal electricity
  • Tidal and wave energy
  • Wind turbine generators

The following topic areas are NOT within the scope of the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy:

  • Microgrid design, optimization, operation and control - not involving renewable energy generation characteristics
  • Virtual power plant design, optimization, control not involving renewable energy plants
  • Protection of renewable generation – except involving fault ride through
  • Design, optimization and control of power converters without consideration of network
  • Theory and principle of generation of power from stand-alone power generation, conversion or storage technologies without involving electric power network
  • Renewable energy development and feasibility study project not involving new modeling and methodology of design optimization
  • Sharing operating experience of sustainable and other community energy development projects without technical rigor and methodology
  • Dynamics and condition monitoring of wave/wind/tidal turbine mechanical components
  • Resource (wind, irradiance, tide, ocean current, etc.) assessment except forecasting for use in power grid operations.

The Impact Factor for the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy is 7.65.

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 (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. 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 submitted. If selected, the OA discounted fee of $2,045 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 over-length page charge and/or charge for the use of color in the print format) 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.

Overlength Page Charges

Beginning 1 January 2019, overlength page charges will be $150 per each page in excess of the first eight published pages.
