Special Issue Information
With growing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, security of conventional energy supplies, and environmental safety of conventional energy production techniques, renewable energy systems are becoming increasingly important and are receiving high levels of political attention all over the world. There have been great advances in technology to develop sustainable, economically and environmentally acceptable renewable energy systems using distributed energy resources, such as wind, geothermal, biomass, and solar. Despite these advances, there is not enough information for optimal planning and the design of renewable energy systems among installers and consumers, financial groups that broker large installations, policymakers enabling technology deployment, and even scientists and engineers from other complementary disciplines, except for a few developed countries. This lack of knowledge amongst various social groups has become a formidable barrier to the extensive dissemination of renewable energy systems.
Optimal planning and design are the most fundamental efforts required for the successful deployment of renewable energy systems. This Special Issue (SI) aims to encourage scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and students to address the current state-of-the-art technologies, models, and solutions for the optimal planning and design of renewable energy systems. Original research contributions and reviews dealing with resource assessments, site evaluations, system designs, production forecasting, and feasibility studies in all areas of renewable energy are welcome in this SI.

Manuscript Submission 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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
