It is well-known that information and communication technologies (ICT) contribute up to 10% of world power consumption. In particular, communications and computing systems are indispensable elements in ICT, and thus how to improve the energy efficiency in communications and computing systems becomes one of the most important issues to realize green ICT. Even though a number of studies have been conducted in the literature, most of them focus on one side—in either communications or computing systems. However, salient features in communications and computing systems should be jointly considered, and novel holistic approaches across communications and computing systems are strongly required to implement energy-efficient systems. In addition, emerging systems such as energy-harvesting IoT devices, cyber-physical systems (CPSs), autonomous vehicles (AVs), and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) require new approaches to satisfy their strict energy consumption requirements in mission-critical situations.
The goal of this Special Issue is to disseminate the recent advances in energy-efficient communications and computing systems. Review and survey papers on these topics are also welcome.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- energy-efficient communications: from physical layer to application layer;
- energy-efficient computing systems;
- energy-efficient network architecture: through SDN/NFV/network slicing;
- energy-efficient system design;
- energy-efficient Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT (IIoT);
- energy-efficient edge/fog/cloud computing;
- new approaches for energy-efficient computing and communications (e.g., AI/ML and data-driven approaches);
- new performance metrics on energy efficiency in emerging systems;
- energy harvesting and simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT);
- Smart Grid and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G);
- standardization and open source activities for energy efficient systems.

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.
