Focus and Scope

The journal provides a forum exchange of information, innovative and critical ideas on a wide range of issues in energy. The issues are addressed in four major areas as follows:

  • Energy economics and policy including energy demand and supply study, resources document, transportation and conversion pricing, modeling, security and organizational structure,
  • Energy technology including energy exploration, conversion, transportation technologies, utilization technologies such as rational use of energy in industry, energy efficient building system, system simulation, and cogeneration,
  • Energy regulation, promotion, and environmental concerns including analysis of energy systems structure, restructuring, regulation and promotion for energy conservation, clean development mechanism, and energy enhancement of social development,
  • Electric power system including electricity demand forecasting and planning, electric supply structure and economics, power system dynamics and stability, power system operation and control, and power distribution.

The Regional Energy Resources Information Center (RERIC) was established in May 1978 at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Thailand under the joint sponsorship of the Institute’s Agricultural and Food Engineering Division and the Library and Regional Documentation Center (LRDC). It is now affiliated with the Energy Program of the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Change under the School of Environment, Resources and Development (SERD) of AIT.

RERIC was established as a result of recommendations made at various meetings held in Asia, and particularly as an answer to a meeting of experts in the field of solar and wind energy utilization held in Bangkok in 1976 under the energy program of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP).

RERIC has grown fast since 1978 and, at present, it is a full member of the Regional Steering Committee of the UNESCO Sub-Regional Information Network on New and Renewable Sources of Energy. The center is also one of the special sectoral sources of UNEP’s INFOTERRA environmental information network and the primary contact point for the Energy and Environment Information System (EEIS) in Thailand. RERIC is also one of the nodes of Thailand Energy and Environment Network (TEENET) established as part of the energy conservation program of the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO) of the Royal Thai Government.
