Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In order to reduce global warming and carbon dioxide emissions, the number of electric vehicles is increasing along with the spread of new renewable energy sources around the world. Accordingly, various charging facilities are being expanded in the existing power system to handle the charging load of electric vehicles. However, due to capacity limitations in the existing power system, it is difficult to install fast electric vehicle chargers. To solve this, renewable energy and energy storage systems are integrated using micro-grids. Meanwhile, research has recently been conducted to utilize electric vehicle charging stations as a VPP resource by using the discharge function of electric vehicles and renewable energy. As the paradigm changes from the existing centralized power structure to a distributed one, various services for electric vehicle charging stations that combine renewable energy and various energy sources are expected.

This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the latest developments related to the theory, design, modeling, application, control, and condition monitoring of distributed energy resources and electric vehicle charging stations.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • All aspects of electric vehicle charging stations;
  • Micro-grids;
  • Renewable energy;
  • Battery energy storage systems;
  • Electric vehicles;
  • Power conversion systems;
  • Control systems;
  • Advanced modeling approaches;
  • Virtual Power Plants;
  • Electric vehicles;
  • Distribution networks.

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). 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.
