Researchers and the industrial communities have been increasingly focusing on the renewable energy field in recent decades, therefore integrating the variety of optimization technologies mainly based on improvements through mechanical engineering and physics. However, new renewable energy strategies inspired by other areas of research are being implemented due to the continuing need for energy efficiency, productivity, and profitability. The combination of sensors and data analysis can optimize the management of the renewable energy resources, due to the use of the Internet of Things (IoT), which has been recently proven.
Indeed, the energy efficiency can be optimized using IoT-based renewable energy systems which facilitate the communication between renewable energy devices. For example, the energy regeneration source can be switched from solar to wind turbine on a particularly cloudy day with a lot of wind. On the other hand, the IoT analytics significantly influences the renewable energies. As an example, data extraction from the solar panels allows the maintenance process to be sped up and the downtime to be reduced.
The aim of this Special Issue (SI) is to address both innovative developments resorting to the state-of-the-art technologies and ideas in areas related to the application of Internet of Things to renewable energy optimization. This SI seeks the latest findings from research and ongoing projects relevant to IoT smart applications for energy conservation.
Selected authors from the IAPE’19 conference will be invited to submit their papers to the SI. We also strongly encourage researchers that are unable to participate in the conference to submit articles to the SI.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
