We would like you to consider submitting a paper for this Special Issue of the journal Buildings; the focus of which is on the integration of microgrid’s systems in buildings. The distributed energy generation shows a very rapid growth and reveals an increasing complexity for grid’s managers due mainly to prosumer sites, i.e. producer and consumer buildings. The intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, e.g. photovoltaic generator, remains an issue for their integration into the public grid resulting in fluctuations of voltage and/or frequency, harmonic pollution, difficulty for load management, etc. To increase their integration level and obtain a robust power grid, the smart grid could solve problems of peak consumption, optimal energy management, and demand response. The smart grid is being designed primarily to exchange information on grid needs and availability, help balancing power, avoid undesirable injection, and perform peak shaving. Microgrids, consisting of renewable and traditional energy sources, storage systems, and adjustable loads, play an important role in distributed energy generation and ancillary services. A microgrid controller interacts with the smart grid; it provides voltage control, power balancing, load sharing or load shedding, and takes into account the constraints of the public grid provided by smart grid communication. Therefore, facing the emergence of the smart grid combined with AC or DC microgrids and the increase in positive-energy buildings, one of the solutions is building integrated microgrid systems which provides a solution for the self-supply of buildings, electric vehicles, and grid-interaction control.
We hope this subject is of interest to you and look forward to collaborating with you in the near future.

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. Buildings 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 2600 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.
