Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Increasing pressure in the move toward the protection of resources and the environment has made research on renewable energies urgent. The integration of a high proportion of renewable energy resources into our energy systems will enable sustainable energy development and a low-carbon society. To this end, this Special Issue focuses on new architecture, methodologies and technologies for renewable and sustainable energy systems (RSESs). From the perspective of energy type, the deep integration of multiple-energy networks offers diversified energy utilisation forms, resulting in improved energy efficiency, enhanced system resilience and the increased utilisation of renewable energy. From the perspective of equipment, the electrification of energy devices (e.g., electric vehicle) can effectively reduce dependency on traditional fossil fuels, thus decreasing carbon emissions. From the perspective of cyber technology, advances in communication and big data analysis methods benefit the intelligent detection, coordination and management of energy systems.

There are many challenges that require further research and development on policy, architecture, modelling, planning, operation, optimisation and control of renewable and sustainable energy systems. This Special Issue aims to address and disseminate state-of-the-art research and opportunities regarding the applications of innovative solutions to achieve low-carbon and sustainable energy development. We welcome the submission of original papers with novel research contributions in all aspects of tools, models and methods of relevance and impact for RSESs.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • The design of energy market and policies for RSESs;
  • Energy management architecture and method for RSESs;
  • Smart planning, operation and control for RSESs;
  • Spatiotemporal data analytics for RSESs;
  • Digital twin for RSESs;
  • Power electronics for RSESs;
  • Stability analysis for RSESs;
  • New algorithms and convergence analysis for RSESs;
  • The applications of AI, IoT and 6G/5G technologies in RSESs.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sustainability 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 2400 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.
