Due to the rapid growth of technologies and communication systems, electricity demand must be supplied and have the highest quality and reliability. On the other hand, due to increasing concerns about the environment, sustainable energies are highly demanded. On this basis, the conventional energy systems should transition into the smart systems to meet the requirements. Novel technologies, techniques and models in the operation and planning of power systems should enable the current systems to move towards the smart grid. To this end, renewable energy resources, energy storage systems, electric vehicles and demand response are key factors of the transition in different aspects of generation, transmission and distribution levels. This Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers to address the technologies, models and solutions to facilitate and speedup the transition into smart grid.

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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences 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 1500 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.
