Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a paradigm that converges a variety of physical, digital and virtual things through information networks, to smart environments, that cover energy, buildings, transport, cities, healthcare, etc. As an important application of IoT-enabled solutions, Energy Internet has become one of the most promising power distribution infrastructures to promote a revolutionary vision of the smart grid. The integration of energy systems, which refers to energy generation, energy delivery, management and consumption with IoT which includes a great deal of heterogeneous devices, sensors, appliances, communication networks, information technologies, computing resources, and introduces advanced improvements and opportunities, such as dynamic control, deregulation, interoperability, interaction capability, responsiveness, robustness, intelligent energy management, advanced demanded side response, and energy efficiency improvement. The aforementioned advantages and challenges demand extensive exploration and investigation in a cross-disciplinary field.

This Special Issue on “IoT and Energy Internet” aims to solicit innovative research and state-of-the-art advances in new algorithms, control strategies, communication technologies, infrastructures, and applications in IoT-empowered smart energy systems.
