2. Algorithms, Modelling and Optimisation, EnergyVille, EnergyVille 1, Thor Park 8310, 3600 Genk, Belgium
Interests: robust distributed coordination and control in the context of smart electric distribution networks; smart grids; user-centric energy systems; smart metering; distributed control; robust system design; multi-energy systems, infrastructure interdependencies, and dependability modeling, in a context of energy and data infrastructures
Energy infrastructures (electricity, heat, hydrogen, gas, etc.) are an essential pillar of our society and hence contribute significantly to the welfare and wellbeing of citizens. The next generation of energy infrastructures will be both digitalized and intertwined. This digitalization allows for a better design, planning, and operation of the networks; monitoring can quickly detect malfunctions, while control can react to suboptimal conditions. Intertwining combines different energy infrastructures; heat networks provide flexibility for the electrical grid and gas networks can carry hydrogen. At the International Symposium for Next Generation Infrastructure 2021, these fundamental challenges and relevant solutions will be discussed. This Special Issue of Energies will publish selected papers that deal with energy infrastructures from this symposium.

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.
