The integration of small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery energy storage systems (BESSs) has created the opportunity to operate energy systems in a different way. These solar PV and BESSs can be grouped together to supply power in a small area in the form of microgrids, where multiple microgrids can be connected together. The advancement of information and communication technologies has enabled ubiquitous communication among different devices, along with the integration of advanced computing and decision-making features. Incorporating IoT applications in a microgrid allows useful insights into energy consumption and generation patterns, new opportunities for energy trading, as well as innovative strategies for power sharing. This Special Issue focuses on different IoT applications for microgrids and will stress, among others, on the following main topics:
- IoT for local energy trading in microgrids
- Energy management in microgrids
- Modeling of local energy markets in microgrids
- Power sharing strategies for both individual and multiple microgrids
- Information and communication infrastructure for IoT enabled local energy trading
- Open energy-sharing platforms
- Cyber security for IoT-enabled local energy trading
- Applications of IoT for power conversions in microgrids
The Special Issue solicits original theoretical and practical contributions, including review papers, on any relevant area of IoT applications for microgrid. We would like to cordially invite you to contribute to this Special Issue.

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
