Formulation of computer implemented models of alternative (renewable) sources of energy (ASE) will help in the proper allocation of widely-available renewable energy sources; moreover, they are absolutely necessary to design and implment efficient automation for optimal operation of ASE plants and installations. Detailed simulation of alternative sources of energy divices and integrated power plants may be a very cost-effective solution and very often several subsystems of an integraded ASE power plant might be inappropriate, difficult to find and/or very expensive. In addition, ASE forecasts are essential to the integration of renewable power generation in electricity markets operations, since markets ought to be cleared in advance, while market participants shall then make decisions even before that. This Special Issue, entitled “Alternative Sources of Energy Modeling and Automation”, was proposed for the international journal Energies, which is an SSCI and SCIE journal (2015 IF = 2.072 to cover original research and scientific contributions related to the above-mentioned topics, including the most usual ASE small electric power plants, such as wind, small hydro, geothermal, biomas, tidal, photovoltaic, fuel cells, batteries, hybrid plants, etc. As an exemple, in order to design integrated smart power grids based on ASE with battery-based storage, very good ASE components behavioral model and automation of the integrated system are required.
Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
I am writing to invite you to submit your original work to this Special Issue. I am looking forward to receiving your outstanding research.Prof. Dr. George S. Stavrakakis

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 1800 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.
