Special Issue on "Internet of Things (IoT) in sustainable electricity and smart energy systems"

Theme and Scope

Internet of things has proven to be a useful tool to efficiently monitor and regulate energy consumption for industry and households. The term “Smart Energy Systems” have been used to express an approach that reaches broader than the term “Smart grid”. Where Smart Grids focus primarily on the electricity sector, Smart Energy Systems take an integrated holistic focus on the inclusion of more sectors including electricity, heating, cooling, industry, buildings, transportation and allows for the identification of more achievable and affordable solutions to the transformation into future renewable and sustainable energy solutions.

Sustainable development aims to meet the economic, social and environmental needs of today society without sacrificing future generations’ needs and development.  Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions as well as air and water pollution from electricity generation is a key component of achieving sustainable electricity.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • IoT in efficient operation of smart substations using advanced metering infrastructure and advanced sensor infrastructure
  • Cloud computing strategy for optimal management of smart energy systems  
  • Internet of things in time power system optimization with renewables, electric vehicles, etc.
  • Internet of things in real time sustainable energy management system
  • Internet of things for real-time communication in sustainable power and energy systems
  • IoT in distribution network and renewable energy expansion planning considering demand side management
  • IoT in smart security in power grid
  • Internet-enabled infrastructures and services in sustainable electricity and smart energy systems
  • IoT based architecture, implementations, and applications in sustainable electricity
