The anthology of energy-related spatial planning contains contributions from the research, planning and teaching activities of scientists in Austria, Germany and the Netherlands on spatial aspects of the energy transition. The articles of the publication emerged from different activities: either from a presentation at the conference on energy spatial planning - organized by the Institute for Spatial Planning and hosted by Hartmut Dumke - or from an invitation by the editors Rudolf Giffinger, Martin Berger, Kurt Weninger and Sibylla Zech. The articles were evaluated in an open and partly multiple review process.
