Environmental aspects have been emphasized in designing smart energy systems where sustainable development is a crucial factor. Sustainable development in the energy sector has been introduced as an eventual solution for improving the energy systems to comply with the smart energy requirements considering the environment and energy provision. The development of distributed energy resources such as energy converters and storage can also increase the dependency of energy carriers. On this basis, the cross-impact of various energy vectors should be investigated under the concept of multi-energy systems (MES). Developing technologies, methods, and models in the planning and operation of MES should provide a sustainable system with enhanced flexibility to satisfy the energy demand. To this end, renewable energy resources, energy storage systems, demand response, and electric vehicles will play a key role. In such MES, multi-energy players, who can trade with more than one energy carrier, will be enabled to manage and aggregate demand-side energy resources for enhancing the operational flexibility of the system. In addition, energy policies and energy market regulations can accelerate MES development and facilitate its distribution to small-scale energy systems, such as buildings and homes. This Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers and industries to address their solutions for the design of the system structure as well as of operational and control models for sustainable MES.

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. Sustainability 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 1900 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.
