The radical restructuring of electricity supply underway is needed to ensure sustainable prosperity, and quite possibly the survival of the human species. This transformation includes the introduction of new components at all links in the chain of production, delivery and use, new network configurations, new design and operational philosophies, new incentives and business models, new security structures, new policies, and possibly new social structures. One emerging entity of great current interest is microgrids, i.e. locally controlled energy systems that can operate grid-connected or as electrical islands, although technologies and examples of systems that may not strictly be microgrids, such as remote power systems, community energy, etc., are also highly relevant. Also, viable solutions are unlikely to come from the perspective of one discipline alone. Exploration of numerous aspects of renewable integration demand response and other challenges to the legacy system are required to achieve affordability, resilience, sustainability, and prosperity. Adoption of complex microgrids can involve multiple energy carriers in integrated energy systems, e.g. involving passive design, electricity, heat, light, and other energy service requirements. Integration significantly increases the coupling and interactions between sources and between supply and end-use at various scales (multinational, national, community, intra-building and intra-process). Energy storage (including electric vehicles) and flexible demand for multiple carriers are central to efficient solutions that improve performance and the business case.
This Virtual Special Issue (VSI) welcomes submissions from all disciplines as long as the work involves a significant analytic contribution, including from the social sciences. Accepted articles will be published in Applied Energy.
