The concepts of demand response and smart grids are two rather wide-scope and key topics in the operation of power and energy systems. Although new demand response approaches appear every day, more work is needed to catch its full potential, bringing advantages for all the involved players. The successful implementation of smart grids requires the widespread use of demand response not only by gathering the flexibility of large and medium consumers but also targeting small-size consumers. Effective approaches are needed to put in place adequate strategies and methods to design and manage demand response. As part of the power and energy ecosystem, demand response is a very valuable resource which, when coordinated with the increasing penetration of renewable energy and market-driven business models, can significantly increase the system efficiency while keeping energy costs at reasonable levels.
This Special Issue will address all aspects related to demand flexibility, demand response, and their importance for efficient smart grids.

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.
