Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last few decades, the planning and operation of energy production and energy consumption have been a growing concern globally. Smart energy management is the systematic coordination of the procurement, conversion, transmission, distribution, and use of energy to meet user, environmental, and economic requirements. In this context, the key drivers include resource conservation, climate protection, and cost savings, while the users have permanent and affordable access to the energy they need. Traditionally, smart energy management has been tackled separately in different sectors (e.g., transportation, electricity generation, built environment, industry, agriculture), each with its own specific constraints, requirements, and design solutions. In contrast to these single-sector solutions, smart energy systems adopt a holistic, systemic approach that aims to include, integrate, and coordinate technologies and stakeholders from/within multiple sectors to provide a feasible solution for each sector, as well as for the overall energy system. Smart energy systems are playing an increasingly broad and critical role in many countries to support sustainable development. One requirement of these smart energy systems is that they are resilient to any imposed damage or irregularities and continue to function at the required performance level. Resilience engineering is a holistic systems engineering approach that provides the models and methods to design and analyze systems for resilience.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together innovative developments and applications of resilience engineering for smart energy systems. We welcome both research papers addressing new insights and experience papers discussing the lessons learned in practice. Articles may include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Modelling approaches for the resilience of smart energy systems;
  • System architecture design for resilience engineering of smart energy systems;
  • Application of system of systems for resilient smart energy systems;
  • Tools for resilient smart energy systems;
  • Obstacles to resilience of smart energy systems;
  • Methods and process models for resilience engineering of smart energy systems;
  • Empirical evaluation approaches for resilience engineering of smart energy systems;
  • Resilient engineering of smart grids and microgrids;
  • Critical infrastructures and smart energy systems;
  • Cross-sectoral integration of smart energy systems;
  • Workflow patterns for resilient smart energy systems;
  • Business modelling approaches for resilient smart energy systems;
  • Metrics for resilient smart energy systems.

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
