Electricity networks have evolved over the last few years, improving their reliability and increasing their functionality. These changes have led to the development of smart grids.
Smart grids allow communication between the different agents of the electrical system, and the interaction of these agents with the equipment, devices and software that are part of the smart grids. One notable, but not the only, feature of smart grids is their application in energy management. The possibility of transmitting information from metering equipment to electricity companies and consumers allows for proper demand management, both from the point of view of the companies and the consumer. Energy management through smart grids improves safety and quality by adequately monitoring the different elements of the grid, and facilitates the use of new storage technologies, the renewable energies integration, the implementation of electric vehicles and self-consumption systems.
Many aspects must be taken into account to ensure that smart grids function properly, including the development of control and measurement devices, communication systems and the software required to manage all devices, reducing costs and maximizing reliability.
Taking into account all the above, this Special Issue is dedicated to topics related to “Smart Energy Management for Smart Grids”, including both technical and economic topics.

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 monthly 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 1600 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.
