Sustainable development and climate change mitigation are two of the main challenges facing the energy sector. Energy consumption is intrinsically dependent on fossil fuels since they serve a significant portion of energy demand, whether through electricity generation, transportation, or other sectors. Therefore, to achieve the environmental goals stipulated by worldwide governments, increased integration of renewable energy resources (RESs) in electricity generation is crucial. However, RESs have uncertainty and volatility associated with their primary sources, e.g., wind speed and solar radiation. This leads to a loss of flexibility in the power system and eventually reduces reliability and security. Among different options to supply the flexibility, demand response (DR) and electricity markets are two economical options that can provide flexibility with the lowest costs. The increasing penetration of energy-intensive loads, such as electric vehicles and heat pumps, that are controllable enables the demand side to provide flexibility for the grid. Developing models in the planning, operation, and control of demand-side resources should enhance the flexibility of the energy systems and satisfy the consumers. Besides, energy policies and energy market regulations should enable DR strategies in industries, energy communities, and small-scale energy systems such as buildings and homes. This Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers and industries to report their solutions for the design of the system structure as well as of operational and control models for DR management in electricity markets and ancillary services.

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.
