Interests: renewables; climate change
The interfaces of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have received significant attention, from both academia and industry, since the early 2000s. This synergistic prospect is increasingly allowing end users and policymakers alike to access information, which is easily and quickly interpretable, properly contextualized, and therefore specifically tailored to their needs.
On the other hand, scientists coming from different disciplines related to renewable energy sources, energy production and transmission, environmental sciences, climate change continuously require more complete and specialized datasets to integrate in their analyses. Simultaneously, by facilitating data access and evaluation, as well as promoting open access to create a level playing field for non-funded scientists, data can be readily used for scientific research in renewable energy analysis.
These two challenges drive the new scientific advancements in GIS towards (i) bigger/more comprehensive datasets, (ii) geo-information and earth-observation architectures and services, and (iii) new IT communication technologies (location-based tools, games, virtual and augmented reality technologies, etc.). Relative research, also involves the development of new approaches to consolidate the fragmented and incoherent energy data across the literature and among geospatial communities, thus communicating the new information to the different audiences.
The fine tuning of the synergy between Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is critical and will be of tantamount importance in the process of attaining, in time, the Paris Agreement climate goals.
This Special Issue seeks to present the recent advances in GIS-based Renewable Energy Analysis. Authors are encouraged to submit original contributions, which may include simulation studies, empirical field experiments and survey-based approaches, answering to the related temporary research questions in the field. The target audience of this Special Issue includes researchers and practitioners in the field of Renewable Energy Sources and geographical analyses, due to its explicitly practical application aspects.

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. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information 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 1000 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.
