International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications, ICRERA 2018

Dear Colleague,

The purpose of the International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications (ICRERA) 2018 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), Birmingham (2016), and San Diago (2017) the seventh edition will be in Paris, France, 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 160 selected papers out of 208 papers at ICRERA2017 have been proposed for possible publications in IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics (19 papers), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Applications (23 papers), International Journal of Renewable Energy Research (29 Papers), Environmental Science and Pollution Research (20), Energies (12), ijSmartGrid (28) and IJESA (29).We hope to select similar number of papers for the ICRERA 2018. All papers presented at ICRERA conference will be published in IEEE Xplore, WEB of Science and SCOPUS. According to WEB of Science, h-index of ICRERA is 8, and average citation per item is 0.8.

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
