    In the last two decades, there has been a strong interest in diversifying the energy generation portfolio by reexamining the role of renewable energy. The focus on renewables has gained momentum recently. This renewed focus, backed by the rapid development of more efficient and affordable technology, has created the right conditions for an industry to solidly establish itself (U.S. Energy Informat...

    Exploiting renewable energy sources makes sense on many levels: first as a response to the world?s reliance on fossil fuels and to reduce climate-changing emissions. But beyond that, more mature renewable generation technologies deployed in areas naturally blessed with abundant renewable resources are beginning to challenge traditional fuels for cost-effectiveness, even as subsidies for low-carbon...

    Continued growth of renewable power generation could lead to a sustainable energy future with lower greenhouse gas emissions. A recent trend highlighting this growth is the installation of solar and wind power generation exceeding that of new conventional power generation from coal and nuclear power plants. Furthermore, the cost of electricity generation by solar and wind is rapidly approaching gr... View full abstract»

    Over the last decade, the percentage of electricity generated in the United States from renewable sources has grown at an impressive rate, including significant amounts of generation located on the distribution system. Solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity systems, in particular, have evolved rapidly from a once-niche technology to one that is now widely used by schools, households, businesses, and ...

    While many people think of natural gas as the "go-to" fuel of the decade and near future, it is remarkable how much renewable energy is being installed. In 2013, approximately 44% of all new electric generation capacity (on a nameplate megawatt basis) installed in the United States came from solar and wind. In 2014, that amount increased to 53% [1] (see Figure 1). View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
