Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editors are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies, entitled “Integration of Renewable Energy Sources to Smart Grid”. The transition to renewable energy occurring worldwide is the outcome of a global effort to fight climate change and to ensure a more sustainable way of life. Electricity grids are the means to accomplish the green energy shift, provided that renewable sources are carefully integrated, while the grid is smartened to interact with power electronics-interfaced generators and loads. In this scenario, it is fundamental to understand the effects and implications of the new technologies that are rapidly taking over the electricity grid, and how these new technologies can be managed to guarantee service stability, energy security and power quality. This Special Issue aims to explore problems and solutions concerned with a power system dominated by renewable energy, power electronic converters, and catering for the imminent large-scale deployment of electrified transportation.

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). 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.
