Energy consumption is growing day by day; in parallel, there is a transition to cleaner energy production systems. The new energy generation and consumption systems are increasingly complex, since they have a distributed nature, behavior that is not totally predictable, and hybrid characteristics, since different sources of energy usually coexist. Additionally, energy storage elements play a very important role. At present, there are a large number of them with very different characteristics. Handling these scenarios is a challenging problem.
Energy management systems play a decisive role in these new energy scenarios. Its correct operation is key to profit from available energy and minimize the use of fossil fuel.
The literature describes different ways to develop energy management systems; the main ones are heuristics, intelligent control, and optimal and predictive control, among others. An element that is usually present in all these algorithms is the technique for predicting generation and energy consumption. This prediction plays a key role in the optimal functioning of energy management systems.
In this special section, we intend to show energy management techniques applied to different energy 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.
