Renewable Energy is no longer a niche sector of novel technologies, and we have now implemented renewable energy to a scale where it is expected to provide 50% of global power in the next few decades. This integration has had a significant impact on conventional energy infrastructure, creating a new grand challenge that the energy sector needs to address: How should energy infrastructure and markets evolve as the grid becomes more decarbonised and decentralised, and as greater digitisation comes to the fore; And with this challenge in mind, what pathways (and their associated requirements) will enable renewable energy technologies to co-exist with other assets in a rapidly-decarbonising energy system? Renewable Energy Focus Journal aims to be a focal point for exploring where these complex forces of decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitisation intersect with the scale up of renewable energy, its related technologies, and market developments. We serve multiple stakeholders, including: Academics and researchers; Engineers; Economists and the Finance community; Technology Manufacturers and companies developing renewable energy solutions; Those with a keen interest in the scale up of renewable energy, such as NGOs, Associations, Governments and Societies. We accept Original Research and Review Papers, Case Studies, as well as Forum Papers - best practice in financial, policy, and regulatory affairs as it pertains to renewable energy development (see our Guide for Authors for a full list of article types we accept). All Research is subject to rigorous full peer review. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
