Renewable Energy Systems (RES) are one of the most important solutions to improve global environmental behavior, reduce global change impact and provide global access energy. The different technologies have strongly improved during last few years and, in most cases, are a reliably solution for both thermal and electrical generation, providing a good solution to reduce the usage of fossil fuels, that have many impacts both in the environment and in the humans. Despite this, strong research and development efforts must be performed to improve RES performance and reduce environmental impact due to required raw materials or used components (i.e., lithium and other metals mining impact, recycling technologies for obsolete systems or energy storage systems improvement).
The Special Issue aims the potential authors to present research papers about the specific environmental aspects involving RES usage, especially in the next fields: (1) analysis and impact of global life cycle for RES; (2) innovative solutions for environmental protection based on RES; (3) environmental impact reduction in REs, including Life Cycle Analysis (LCA); and (4) economic, social and environmental aspects of RES.

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 papers will be 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. Environments is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
