Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies publishes high-quality research relating to the technological, economic and social aspects of energy systems as well as the policies needed to make them sustainable solutions.
This section welcomes the submission of original studies, reviews and perspectives that examine the characteristics of new energy sources in a systemic and sustainable way. Topics we aim to cover include;
· characteristic of sustainable energy systems such as energy yield or Energy Return for Energy Invested (EROI) and effects on the environment;
· policies for impact on society including pollution, waste, land use, climate change;
· "footprinting" of natural resources such as land area and rare mineral resources;
· model studies on the development of renewable and non-renewable sustainable energy sources;
· energy from urban waste;
· exploitation of waste heat;
· integration of storage and distribution in sustainable energy systems;
· socio-economic return, analysis and policies for sustainable energy systems.
We expect submitted articles to provide sustainable and impactful solutions to the issues addressed as well as ultimately lead to reasoned choices by scientists and policy makers. The section also aims at improving systems according to Goal 7 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Affordable and Clean Energy, and its targets. Other positive effects are welcome on all other SDGs.

Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Energy Research.
