Special Issue Information
It is estimated that nearly 1 billion people do not have access to electricity. However, it is difficult for the rest to imagine that without electricity it is possible to overcome the challenges of the modern world or take advantage of the numerous opportunities that it gives us. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that between 2018 and 2050 the global increase in energy consumption in the buildings sector will reach 65%. It will mainly result from growing population, uplifting standards of living raising demand for personal appliances and equipment, as well as urbanization. In the era of current trends towards smarter and more sustainable use of resources, significant development of renewable energy sources is observed. The ongoing technological progress and evolving demand for new solutions raises a discussion on the need to implement universal registers collecting the attributes that describe them, including spatial data. In the era when information is the main strategic resource, there is a growing need for comprehensive spatial information on the location of the sources of renewable energy Meanwhile, innovative information technologies and databases may support the improvement of their efficiency and lead to developing standards for their location, installation or proper service.
Despite the fact that the growing demand for energy cannot be stopped, owners of properties are increasingly paying attention to the level of energy consumption and the energy potential of the real estates at their disposal. Therefore, the aim of the following special edition is to collect the research, the tangible effect of which may be presentation of new tools and methods for measurement and visualization of both the energy potential and consumption of real estates, as well as determination of their impact on the socio-economic environment and individual investment decisions.
Scientists involved in the research on both renewable and non-renewable energy sources are invited to take part in the creation of the following special edition. Moreover, specialists working on the border of the area of energy and in the matters such as surveying, GIS, geoinformatics, remote sensing, geology, environmental protection, economy, law, spatial planning, construction, architecture, urban planning, Smart City, revitalization etc. are also welcome to submit papers.
The aim of the issue is to present proposals for innovative techniques of determination of the energy potential and energy consumption of real estates, as well as interesting applications and well-prepared review articles. Both quantitative and qualitative studies are approvable. Analyses may be conducted from the perspective of individuals, but also those in which the preferences of some interest groups, such as residents, managers, developers, state administration, etc., are visible.
Authors are kindly asked to submit papers concerning, above all:
- inventory measurements of the location, dimensions and power of installations related to obtaining energy,
- use of GIS tools to assess the energy potential and energy consumption of real estates and the selection of real estates with the desired energy properties,
- building databases to collect information related to the energy potential (for example wind cadastre or solar cadastre) and energy consumption of real estates,
- statistical analyses of properties of real estates related to their energy potential and energy consumption described in a quantitative manner on the basis of measurable data or specified in surveys,
- case studies to determine the energy potential or energy consumption of individual properties or their complexes,
- description of proposed new administrative and legal procedures leading to the determination of the energy potential or energy consumption of properties.

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. Energies 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 2200 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.
