As the number of distributed energy resources (DERs) (e.g., energy storage systems, PVs, wind generators, heat pumps, and electric vehicles) is sharply rising, especially in distribution energy networks, the network is facing more challenges such as congestion in addition to voltage and frequency distortion. Since DERs together with demand response programs can play a role as flexibility resources, operators can leverage these potentials to overcome the growing network challenges.
In order to coordinate flexible resources, a proper market can be established such that the resources’ owners/operators are incentivized to participate and share their asset flexibility with the network operator.
Within modern markets, where flexibility/energy is coordinated among providers, the design varies from centralized to decentralized operation, and the clearing algorithm can also differ, e.g., varying from zonal pricing to nodal pricing. Hence, the optimization method that is applied to various market designs for providing an efficient market will also differ.
This Special Issue invites the submission of high-quality research papers presenting novel ideas covering a wide range of topics in association with the optimal scheduling of flexible resources in the energy market, including local flexibility market, distributed energy resources, peer-to-peer trading, distributed optimization, decentralized optimization, congestion management, optimal power flow, demand response, and stochasticity.

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.
