ReNew magazine (currently subtitled ReNew: technology for a sustainable future ) is an Australian magazine covering domestic renewable energy technologies and sustainable culture . Originally a small magazine , printed and distributed locally in Melbourne , it was first published by the Alternative Energy Co-operative in 1980 as Soft Technology: Alternative Energy in Australia . Although it sold for the high cover price of $0.85, the magazine ’s circulation is so fast that by issue 35, published in February 1991, it included a full color cover. The price was increased from $ 2.50 to $ 3 and national distribution rights secured for issue 40, published in June the following year. A total of 13,000 copies were printed. The magazine was renamed, after much deliberation, under the present title in 1996.
