CFP Deadline: 15/12/2021, Energies, SI: Sustainable Energy Consumption 2021

Application Deadline: 15-12-2021

Dear Colleagues,

Energy sustainability is a key challenge for a developed and sustainable world. The use of renewable energy has significantly increased over the past several years, bringing new technical and commercial challenges to the energy sector.

Consumers are key players in this context, as demand flexibility is crucial to coping with the intermittency of most renewable energy sources, such as wind and sun. Demand-active participation is particularly important to ensuring the efficient use of the available energy at local and global levels.

The Special Issue “Sustainable Energy Consumption”, published in 2019, addressed the different perspectives of energy consumption and demand for ensuring energy sustainability, increased energy efficiency, and reasonable energy costs. It published five papers evidencing the relevance of the Special Issue topics, which are gaining more and more importance.

We are now launching a new Special Issue, “Sustainable Energy Consumption 2021”, as a continuation of the previous one, with a particular focus on the use of artificial intelligence to solve the main challenges in the field. We invite papers on innovative scientific and technical developments, sound case studies, and reviews which are relevant and/or related to “Sustainable Energy Consumption”. Selected papers are expected to propose models, methods, and tools that address demand response, demand-side management, consumption analysis, and profiling, as well as different aspects related to energy demand and its management in the scope of sustainable energy systems. Papers using artificial intelligence techniques—namely, machine learning—are particularly welcome. In this sense, the topics of interest also include smart grids, renewable-based generation, energy storage systems, distributed energy resources, energy-efficient buildings, as well as electric and hybrid vehicles, as long as the energy consumption aspects are considered.
