Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The evolving energy systems of today require approaches to tackling the increasing number of challenges related to sustainability, efficiency and reliability. In this regard, we are excited to announce a call for papers for a Special Issue titled "Advancement and Optimization of Demand Response in Smart Grids". This collection will explore cutting-edge research and advances in the field, with the specific aim of enhancing the effectiveness of demand response mechanisms within grids.

We invite scholars, researchers and practitioners to contribute their insights and findings to this Special Issue. Submissions may cover a range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Algorithms for demand response optimization techniques;
  • Integration of renewable energy sources;
  • Application of artificial intelligence in improving demand response functionalities;
  • Social policy aspects related to implementing demand response.

This Special Issue serves as a platform for sharing groundbreaking research that will help in developing and optimizing strategies for demand response. It aims to foster an understanding of how these strategies contribute towards building sustainable smart grids. We eagerly anticipate receiving high-quality submissions that will enrich the discussion surrounding the evolution of demand response in grid technology.

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. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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).
