Smart grid is now more than a dream. A multitude of enterprises, institutions, and universities are pushing their technologies for intelligent, efficient, resilient, and green solutions to complex challenges in energy. Inherently, smart grid is multidisciplinary; communication, sensing, smart metering, electric vehicles, computing, and cybersecurity are driving technologies. Interoperability between diverse technologies is key for the success of smart grid. Standardization, testing, integration, and adaptation contribute to the interoperability in smart grid. This Special Issue invites articles on converging technologies for smart grid and solutions to the interoperability challenges.
