Call for papers: Renewable Energy Systems and Management

Call for papers: Renewable Energy Systems and Management

A special issue of International Journal of Agile Systems and Management

Over the past decade, the climate change and problems of global warming have increasingly attracted public concerns. In order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, studies on how to make good use of renewable energy have been actively carried out at both the national and international levels. In Europe, the Renewable Energy industry has been developing rapidly. Since 1997, the EU has been working towards a renewable energy supply equivalent to 12% of the total EU's energy consumption by 2010. The UK’s Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO) will require 5% of all UK retail fuel to come from a renewable source by 2010. The benefits would be a reduction of around 1,000,000 MT of carbon per year. The rapid increase in the requirements of renewable energy opens the way to engineers and researchers to explore and exploit flexible and advanced renewable energy technologies and decision-making approaches in the planning, design and operation stages.

This Special Issue will focus on a broad spectrum of all relevant issues and provide a holistic examination of the current status and future trends in Renewable Energy Systems and Management. It aims to bring together the work of leading researchers, engineers and scientists from around the world.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
  • Current issues in the renewable energy industry
  • Renewable energy demand response and management
  • Renewable energy economics
  • Renewable energy regulations
  • Role of governmental regulation
  • Renewable energy policies
  • Renewable energy market deregulation
  • Renewable energy pricing
  • Renewable energy retail markets
  • Renewable energy investment coordination
  • Renewable generation
  • Renewable energy risk analysis
  • Renewable energy policy act
  • Renewable energy security assessment
  • Distribution and agile power systems
  • Fault diagnosis
Important Dates
Paper due: 30 June, 2008
Acceptance notification: 31 July, 2008
Final paper version due: 29 August, 2008
