It is common sense that an intelligent administration of energy resources represents a unique way to respect the environment, and equally redistribute and reutilize resources. In today’s energy systems, control and optimisation techniques and algorithms play a decisive role. In fact, energy optimisation represents a crucial issue in smart grid/micro-grids energy flow, renewable energy, electrical and hybrid vehicles, as well as in traditional engines, energy storage devices, electrical motors, and in any kind of actuator, including alternative actuators. In term of energy, all these systems, from the biggest to the smallest, play an extremely important role. Any kind of small motors and actuators (electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, etc.), which are devoted to the transformation of energy into movement, because of their massive application, should be considered in this process of global intelligent energy optimisation. This Special Issue of Energies will explore the latest developments in intelligent control algorithms and techniques dedicated to the optimal management of energy in the systems listed above, or in any kind of system in which an algorithm or a technique plays a decisive role in term of energy optimization and performance.

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.
