Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the global tendency toward decarbonization, there is an urgent need to promote the low-carbon transformation of energy systems. To achieve this goal, it is of vital importance to build a low-carbon power technology theoretical framework that takes into account carbon emission measurement, evaluation, and optimization of power systems, providing support for carbon neutrality-oriented power systems from multiple dimensions such as planning, operation, control, and evaluation.

This Special Issue aims to create a forum for experts, professionals, and readers interested in sustainable energy, renewable energy generation and low-carbon power technologies. We invite researchers and professionals to present their work progress related to these topics, including emerging technologies. Some of the interested topics are, but are not limited to, the following:

Suggest themes:

  • Planning for renewable energy with energy storage;
  • Carbon emission measurement technology of power systems;
  • Low-carbon planning, operation, and control of future power systems;
  • Grid planning algorithms with renewable energy generation units;
  • Grid-forming control algorithms for renewable energy generation;
  • Distributed cooperative control algorithms for renewable energy;
  • Stability analysis methods for power systems with high penetration of renewable energy;
  • Operation strategy of smart grids with high penetration of renewable energy;
  • Typology, operation, and control of energy hub for clean distributed energy generation.

Responding to the low-carbon demands of power users helps the power industry unlock carbon emission reduction potential, transmit carbon reduction responsibilities, and hold significant importance for energy conservation and carbon reduction. Currently, there is relatively limited empirical research on carbon emission demand responses in different industries. Therefore, this article, based on dynamic carbon accounting technology and combined with power planning and operation simulation data in Fangshan District, proposes a low-carbon demand response mechanism guided by user-side carbon reduction, using dynamic carbon emission factors as guiding signals. Furthermore, an assessment model for the carbon reduction potential of a low-carbon demand response technology is constructed. Finally, empirical research is conducted on the estimated carbon emission reduction of 108 enterprises in 6 different industries in Fangshan District based on the assessment model. The results indicate that carrying out low-carbon demand response can reduce enterprise carbon emissions, and changes in enterprise capacity and industry affiliation will have a significant impact on the carbon reduction effect. This study introduces a novel approach to the low-carbon development of the power system load side, offering a fresh perspective on the empirical analysis of low-carbon development for typical receiving-end power grids.
