The Guest Editor is inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Green Network Technologies and Renewable Energy Systems”.
The new generation of networks enables the massive connectivity of devices, increases the capacity and guarantees the latency. 5G, IoT and virtualization technologies promise new energy aware applications in a broad range of fields and verticals, such as smart cities, smart homes, industrial environments or energy providers. It is expected the support for real time negotiations between the consumer and the energy suppliers about the energy demands and the availability, considering the mixing of renewal and non-renewal sources. In the future it is expected the need of full energy renewal ecosystems. In this field, Artificial Intelligence (AI) strategies are a relevant topic towards the intelligentization of the network. Security and privacy are also relevant topics in terms of the information exchanged in the ecosystem.
This Special Issue will deal with novel architectures, strategies, control and optimization for Green Efficient Energy Consumption. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Architectures, infrastructure and systems.
- Energy policies for efficient energy consumption.
- Security and privacy for energy aware communications.
- Modelling, performance analysis and optimization.
- Energy aware services orchestration.
- Usage scenarios, testbeds and experimental prototypes.
- Full renewal energy ecosystems strategies and management.
- Machine learning and big data analytics for the ecosystem.
- Network slicing for green efficient energy consumption.

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.
