Etymology: [Pref. re- + new. Cf. Renovate.]
ReNew magazine 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 increased so rapidly that by issue 35, published in February 1991, it included a full colour 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.
