CFP Deadline: 31/12/2021, Energies, SI: Markets and Distributed Resources for Modern Power Systems

Application Deadline: 31-12-2021

Event Date: 31-12-2021


Dear Colleagues,

The energy world is being challenged by the so-called “three-D’s” ¾ Decarbonisation, Decentralization and Digitalization. Specifically, the rapid expansion of renewables to reach the Paris Agreement is challenging power systems in terms of flexibility for short-term operation, and is putting increased pressure on the capacity of local and regional grids. At the same time, the rapid deployment of local resources able to offer demand-side flexibility is challenging power systems in terms of their smooth integration in a cost-effective and reliable manner. And all of this is happening in a society that is becoming increasingly digitalized, giving rise to an Internet of Things (IoT) — that is, the exchange of information between any entity and device in the power system is becoming gradually a reality.

Accordingly, future power systems will be characterized by very large penetrations of renewables (towards 100%), support the operation of central markets (e.g., day-ahead and balancing markets) and local flexibility markets, and the existence of a wide range of distributed energy resources, such as intelligent micro-grids and aggregation services, able to participate in the different market layers in a cost-effective way. Also, electric vehicles are expected to play a key role in future systems.

This Special Issue seeks to contribute to the ‘Modern Power Systems’ agenda by considering a multi-disciplinary approach. We therefore invite papers on innovative technical developments, reviews, models, analytical aspects and case studies, as well as simulation-based and assessment papers, from the various disciplines related to the main activities of power systems — that is, generation, transport, distribution and consumption of electrical energy (see also the list of keywords).
