The impact of distributed energy resources in the operation of power and energy systems is nowadays unquestionable at the distribution level, but also at the whole power system management level. Increased flexibility is required to accommodate intermittent distributed generation and electric vehicles charging. Demand response already proved to have a great potential to contribute to an increased system efficiency while bringing additional benefits, especially to the consumers. Distributed storage is also promising, i.e., when jointly used with the currently increasing use of photovoltaic panels.
This Special Issue will address the management of distributed energy resources. The focus will include methods and techniques to achieve an optimized operation, to aggregate the resources namely by virtual power players, and to remunerate them. The integration of distributed resources in electricity markets will also be addressed as a main drive for their efficient use.
