Call for Papers

International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications, ICRERA-2017

Dear Colleague,
The purpose of the International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications (ICRERA) 2017 is to bring together researchers, engineers, manufacturers, practitioners and customers from all over the world to share and discuss advances and developments in renewable energy research and applications.
After the success of the first five editions of ICRERA in Nagasaki (2012), Madrid (2013), Milwaukee (2014), Palermo (2015), and Birmingham (2016), the sixth edition will be in San Diego, CA, USA, and will continue focusing on several key topics and technologies related to renewable (green) energy systems and sources.
It is our happiness to share with you that 87 selected papers out of 372 papers at ICRERA2016 have been proposed for possible publications in IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics (27 papers), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Applications (19 papers), and International Journal of Renewable Energy Research (29 Papers), Environmental Science and Pollution Research (12). We hope to select similar number of papers for the ICRERA 2017. All papers presented at ICRERA conference will be published in IEEE Xplore and Thomson Reuters.
ICRERA aims to present important results to the international renewable energy community in the form of research, development, applications, design, and technology. It is therefore intended to assist researchers, scientists, manufacturers, companies, communities, agencies, associations and societies to keep abreast on new developments in their specialties and to unite in finding alternative energy solutions to current issues such as the greenhouse effect, sustainable and clean energy issues.
Topics within the scope of the conference include the following areas, but not limited to:

  • Renewable (Green) Energy Systems and Sources (RESSs) as Wind Power, Hydropower, Solar Energy, Biomass, Biofuel, Geothermal Energy, Wave Energy, Tidal energy, Hydrogen & Fuel Cells, Energy Storage
  • New Trends and Technologies for RESSs
  • Policies and Strategies for RESSs
  • Energy Transformation from Renewable Energy System (RES) to Grid
  • Novel Energy Conversion Studies for RESs
  • Power Devices and Driving Circuits for RESs
  • Control Techniques for RESs
  • Grid Interactive Systems Used in Hybrid RESs
  • Performance Analysis of RESs
  • Hybrid RESSs
  • Decision Support Systems for RESSs
  • Renewable Energy Research and Applications for Industries
