The power distribution system now integrates energy communities and microgrids, including DC grids, different energy vectors (e.g., electricity and gas), new loads (e.g., e-vehicle recharging stations), renewable energy sources, and storage. Business level changes affect the roles of distribution system operators, their relation to transmission system operators, aggregators, third party service providers.
The digitalization of the entire sector results in new concepts for platforms, applications, and services. Use, production, and protection of data relevant to the power system is key to these developments.
In this context, the development of new monitoring and control solutions is proceeding at a fast pace to handle the complexity and to adapt to dynamically changing operating conditions, including extreme cases, such as reconfiguration and black start.
Technical and business activities rely on the access to measurements and other data, and the visibility of network and device status. This implies that measurements, in different forms and from a variety of sources, sensors and instruments, must be pervasive, able to track fast dynamics, able to provide new relevant parameters, and must be accompanied by elaboration, interpretation, and merging functionalities. New concepts of monitoring must be flexible, adaptive, robust. Controls must operate in hierarchical and collaborative manner, serving the objectives of the individual actors and the welfare of the system as a whole.
The technologies for data collection, communication, storage, access and handling are expected to create an open and secure environment, in cloud, edge cloud, or centralized implementations. The applications should be easy to develop and should support interoperability across sectors, companies, institutions, users, and standards.
This Special Issue will present the concepts, technologies, methods, and applications that promise to push the active electrical distribution systems forward.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
