The energy transition—fueled by various non-negotiable societal trends, such as the electrification of all sectors, de-carbonisation, and awareness—has led to the concept of smart grids, which are expected to tackle pressing technological challenges due to the growing share of renewable sources, while leveraging the increasing digitalization of our energy networks. However, as the complexity of man-made engineering systems (such as electricity, heat, gas, and other types of energy networks, industrial processes, transport, and the built environment) rapidly evolve beyond the complete understanding and influence of their creators, new approaches are sought to understand, design, and control these pieces of critical infrastructure as integrated energy systems. Since they comprise both grid technology (generation, transmission, distribution hardware, conversion devices, pipes, storage, and more) and the underlying intelligence (in terms of ICT, algorithms, data, operations, controls, management, balancing, security and quality of supply, analytics, and planning), they are prime examples for what are called large-scale cyber–physical systems.
This Special Issue aims to publish articles that provide novel insights, theories, and solutions for smart grids viewed as cyber–physical systems. The subject areas may range from methods for the analysis of complex energy systems, where advanced mathematics and measurement techniques are used to tackle the complexity of future smart grids stemming from renewable generation, from the management of flexibility and storage, to vehicle-to-grid challenges, and planning and scheduling under increased uncertainty, to name a few.

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. Energies 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 1800 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.
