Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The adoption of new IT technologies driven by legislation and economic changes is reflected in the increased smartness of energy system applications and of buildings in particular. The role of buildings is changing from passively consuming energy to playing an active role in local grid control and optimization strategies, while focusing on occupant well-being through indoor environment monitoring.

Energy management solutions for buildings concern the efficient synchronization of distributed energy generation from renewable energy sources, energy storage, smart charging of electrical vehicles, vehicle to grid, smart metering or load shifting through demand response.

Innovative solutions that enable smart buildings to interact with their occupants and the grid in real time and to manage themselves efficiently, so as to become an active element of the energy system, are highly welcome.

Advances on intelligent and connected devices, smart sensors, and controllers integrated with building energy management systems (BEMS) are of great interest, alongside novel sensor data analytics approaches for efficient information extraction.

Control strategies and decision support systems for energy management in smart buildings can also be considered. The Special Issue welcomes quality submissions addressing both conceptual as well as technological approaches in the abovementioned areas of interest.
The open access journal Energies (ISSN 1996-1073; 2.702 (2019)) is pleased to announce the launch of a new Special Issue entitled “Energy Management for Smart Buildings”. We are serving as Guest Editors for this issue.

The present Special Issue aims to present and highlight the advances and latest novel and emergent technology applications concerning energy management for smart buildings. It will provide a forum for the research community to share advances and new ideas regarding these technologies.

In recognition of your well-respected work, you are cordially invited to submit a paper to this Special Issue.

Papers may be submitted from now until 30 June 2021, as papers will be published on an ongoing basis. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

In the hope that this invitation receives your favorable consideration, we look forward to our future collaboration.

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 2000 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.
