IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy

IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy

A joint publication of Industry Applications Society, Industrial Electronics Society, Instrumentation and Measurement Society, Power Electronics Society, Power & Energy Society, Photonics Society and the Society on Social Implications of Technology.

The IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy is intended to be a cross disciplinary and internationally archival journal aimed at disseminating results of research on sustainable energy that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences energy generation, transmission, distribution and delivery. The journal will publish original technical research on theories and development on principles of sustainable energy technologies and systems. The Transactions will also welcome manuscripts on design, analysis, implementation and evaluation of power systems that are affected by sustainable energy.

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 $1,750 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 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.

Piecing the Picture Together

By 2050, the world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion, up from around 7 billion today. Combined with rising standards of living, this may double energy demand. At the same time, CO2 emissions must be cut significantly to avoid the serious effects of climate change.

Cleaner-burning natural gas is among the cheapest and fastest solutions for many areas of the world...
