Distribution grids are moving towards a renewed flexible architecture to improve energy efficiency and reliability while minimizing costs and environmental impact. The road to the change is not trivial and presents various challenges that have to be tackled. Distributed energy resources together with smart control and communication systems are the ways to face the new challenges, but new studies and methods are required for the validation of the proposed solutions.
This Special Issue aims to encourage both academic and industrial researchers to present their latest enhancements concerning all the technologies for smart distribution grids and their applications. Theoretic findings and investigations about new technologies are awaited. Results from projects, laboratory and field tests are also welcome as well as comprehensive drawing of future scenarios.

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 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.
