In recent years, Microgrids have become one of the power industry’s most attractive topics due to a set of changes and technology advancements that have taken place in various sectors of the power system leading to a more decentralized approach. This has been possible due to the value and positive impacts that Microgrids’ deployment offers which may be through new energy investments and business opportunities as well as making the grid more resilient and sustainable. This Special Issue of Energies will explore the latest developments in technology to enable the application of Microgrids at a large scale in the power grid. The Special Issue will encompass:
- Microgrids and advanced distribution systems
- Smart Grid technology applications in microgrids
- Decentralized electricity markets in microgrids
- Multi-agent system (MAS) architectures for microgrids
- Solar, wind, and other renewable forecasting and integration to microgrids
- Energy storage and electric vehicle applications for microgrids
- Smart microgrid energy management system
This Special Issue will bring together researchers and practitioners from industry, research laboratories, and academia to present and discuss challenges and opportunities related to Microgrids and future electric power distribution grid.
