I want more involvement…how can I become a….

  • Blogger;

We are particularly interested in recruiting bloggers for our site. Blogging is different to other forms of content on our site in that the author has much more freedom to develop some of the themes the blog covers.

If you want to start a blog with us, please get in touch and tell us why. We would ideally like you to have some experience of blogging, though this isn’t essential, as long as you have a compelling subject for your blog, and can help develop a following for it by posting regularly.

We are also happy to consider bloggers from companies selling renewable energy products, as long as the blog doesn’t become a blatant sales pitch.

Please send in a short email with the following information:

1. What is area the blog will cover and who is it relevant for?
2. How often will you post a blog? (Minimum twice a month).

You might find the following link useful.

  • Regular Reporter or Correspondent;

Renewable Energy Focus is a global publication reporting on developments from many countries around the world.

If you would like to be a country correspondent please do get in touch by emailing the Editor.

And finally, will I get paid for my writing?

Renewable Energy Focus has a small budget for freelance contributions, but we can’t pay all of our commissioned writers. However, there are plenty of other reasons to write for us:

1. Our magazines have international reach, so you will effectively be positioning yourself as a Thought Leader to our readership;
2. We give all of our writers a 50 word byeline, so if you work for an organisation, the prospect of increasing the brand recognition of your company cost free, through writing for our large readership, should make any effort you put in worthwhile.
3. We quite often take Renewable Energy Focus to the important industry events, potentially giving even more active participants in the renewables industry access to your article.
4. We realise that many of the top industry experts come from the companies developing technology, and therefore having something to sell. If you are writing a technical article for us, we are happy for you to briefly incorporate the name of products, as long as the article is not a sales pitch and provides objective value to our readership.

Please do get in touch if you are interested!

The editorial team.
