The extensive attention drawn towards development of Internet and shift towards green energy, pioneered the novel concept of Internet of Energy (IoE) by converging the two notions with the aid of Internet of Things (IoT). IoT enables innovative ways to share data, leverage devices, and facilitates remote access. However, problems arise because the infrastructure has not been modernized for implementation. To capitalize on the notion of IoE, physical grids must evolve. The upgrading and automation of electricity infrastructures allow clean energy production with minimal waste. Millions of small renewable energy- generating units are added to the main energy system, in order to achieve maximum efficacy.
Increasing demand for a clean energy intensifies the need of transforming the conventional grids. Even though the solution is renewable energy, the radical shift from existing grids leaves us with tremendous technical challenges that require an entirely new way of managing energy systems. In similar fashion, IoE benefits its stakeholders by increasing efficiency, wireless charging, saving money, and reducing waste production. Further, IoE uses sensors to gather data from various equipment to improve the operational performance, subsequently followed by analysis through domain-specific software. The beauty of IoE is that its benefits are not limited to the large manufacturers, but utility providers, domestic producers, and solar-based companies can also benefit from it. Furthermore, IoE also enables the grid infrastructure to improve energy generation and distribution, while facilitating the integration of renewable energy generators. Simultaneously, IoE ensures grid data collection from the beginning to the very last end of the grid. Such aggregated data will empower utility decision making regarding load balancing, forecasting, and pricing.
For this special section we are soliciting high quality unpublished manuscripts that present original results. The aim is to bring novel research ideas, highlight the open issues, and indicate current research advancements and future directions in the field of IoE-based smart control systems and energy grids, their architectures and various applications in IoT.
