Can wind and solar replace coal in Texas?

An investigation into the potential for new wind and solar projects already proposed in the ERCOT interconnection queue as of June 2020 to replace the coal power that remained in 2019. The authors conclude that the wind and solar portfolio would outproduce retired coal on summer afternoons when demand peaks, leaving small gaps in evenings and shoulder seasons when demand is lower.



Energy storage system design for large-scale solar PV in Malaysia: techno-economic analysis

This study determines the parameters that affect the profitability of large-scale solar energy projects and energy storage projects, and the configurations that maximize financial profits. The findings of this study are useful for the future regulations that intend to enhance the deployment of large-scale solar PV and energy storage in Malaysia.



As of the 1st of January 2023, Renewables: Wind, Water, and Solar will be published under the new title Sustainable Energy Research. The journal welcomes contributions on all sources of energy that support a sustainable approach to energy transformation, including renewable energy, energy efficient systems, and innovative and green systems that contribute to reducing energy poverty and the use of polluting and inefficient energy systems.

While focusing primarily on basic science and technological aspects, Sustainable Energy Research considers reviews and policy issue articles on themes that affect sustainable energy technologies and their implementation.

Aims and scope

Sustainable Energy Research (formerly Renewables: Wind, Water, and Solar) provides a multidisciplinary and international forum for research in the basic science, technologies, industrial R&D, products and system implementation that accelerate the transition to sustainable energy on a local and global scale. Sustainable Energy Research welcomes contributions on all sources of energy that support a sustainable approach to energy transformation, including renewable energy, energy efficient systems, and innovative and green systems that contribute to reducing energy poverty and the use of polluting and inefficient energy systems.
 
While focusing primarily on basic science and technological aspects, Sustainable Energy Research considers reviews and policy issue articles on themes that affect sustainable energy technologies and their implementation. Furthermore, articles are welcome as they contribute to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 7 ‘Affordable and Clean Energy’, particularly in increasing substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix, and doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.
 
Sustainable Energy Research serves as a forum for specialists from both academic institutions, research laboratories and industries involved in R&D projects, system implementation and policy formulations in this field.

Topics in scope include:

  • Solar energy
  • Wind energy
  • Wave energy
  • Geothermal energy
  • Hydroelectricity
  • Energy harvesting devices
  • Hydrogen energy
  • Low carbon energy generation
  • Biofuels
  • Batteries and energy storage
  • Supercapacitors
  • Electrocatalysis and photocatalysis
  • Carbon capture and utilization
  • Energy systems, processes, planning and policy
  • Energy grids and networks
  • Energy economics
