Renewable Energy (RE) is becoming more and more important for the supply of the increasing global energy demand, especially in conjunction with decisions to abandon nuclear energy in some countries. GIS can support the process of RE integration in many ways, such as finding potential areas for solar, biomass, and wind power plants; estimating the RE potential at macro- and micro scales integrating physical modeling; and analyzing the technical, economic, and social impact of RE projects.
The aim of this special issue is to publish original research or review papers in order to stimulate further discussion on the spatio-temporal analysis of RE deployment and integration. It is my pleasure to encourage both theoretical and application-oriented papers on the matter with the support of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, promoting an advanced forum for the science and technology of geographic information.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
