Distributed generation (DG) can be defined as any small-scale power generation technology located close to a consumer, either for reducing reliance on the power grid or for feeding the power directly into the grid. It may also be used to support the performance of weak transmission and distribution systems. Generators in the DG system can include both renewable and non-renewable energy resources. A system with DG has greater load carrying capacity and can correct for poor voltage profile, especially needed in rural areas and during peak hours. Given the current worldwide renewable energy initiatives and reluctance of most governments to invest in construction of new power generating plants, DG is becoming an attractive energy option with a reasonable investment potential. This Special Issue has a particular focus on topics related to smart grids, hybrid power systems with high renewable energy penetration, wind and solar power plant modeling and control, practical experience within high renewable energy penetration systems, and market design and operation.

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 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.
