Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Large-scale integration of renewable energy sources (RES) is at the centre of most decarbonisation policies across the globe. Due to this, they are often economically incentivised and supported via various strategies, action plans and policy acts. Nevertheless, RES shares increase across various energy sectors (power, heating and cooling, industry and transport), which represents a challenge for most countries and RES potential is usually left untapped. Intermittence, temporal and spatial variability, low energy density, modeling uncertainty and economical feasibility are common obstacles for the successful implementation of RES technologies.

This Special Issue will address these challenges by exploring novel models, solutions, ideas and case studies for determining the technical potential and economic feasibility of renewable technologies. The list of potential topics includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Novel RES potential assessment methods;
  • Innovative business schemes of RES technologies;
  • GIS modeling and RES mapping;
  • Uncertainty of modeling and measurement;
  • Analysis of RES potential on various temporal and spatial scales;
  • Financial structure of novel RES technology solutions;
  • Review of RES techno-economic assessment methods;
  • Review of RES potential analysis methods.
