Special Issue “Microgrids: The Path to Sustainability” Microgrids are a growing segment of the energy industry, representing a paradigm shift from centralized structures toward more localized, autonomous, dynamic, and bi-directional energy networks especially in cities and communities. The ability to isolate from the larger grid makes microgrids resilient while their abilities in making scalable energy clusters permit delivery of services that make the grid more sustainable and competitive. Through an optimal design and management process, microgrids could also provide efficient, low-cost, clean energy and help to improve the operation and stability of the regional energy systems. This Special Issue covers these promising and dynamic areas of research and development, and will allow gathering of contributions in different aspects of microgrids for unleashing higher degrees of sustainability and resilience in energy systems.
