Mission statement: The International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems (JEPE) is an international journal for dissemination of the newest technologies and theoretical research in the area of electrical power and energy systems, aiming at inspiring interdisciplinary research across academia and industry and contributing to the prosperity of modern societies.


The scope of JEPE is focused on electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and utilization, from the viewpoints of individual power system elements and their integration, interaction and technological advancement. The scope covers modelling of power system elements, their design, analysis of their performance and their implementation in specific aspects typical for modern electrical power and energy systems of various size and complexity.
