Journal of Electronic Science and Technology - Special Section on Energy-Efficient Technologies—Crowd Energy Applications
Prof. Dr. Stephanie Teufel
University of Fribourg
Since decades, the global electricity demand shows only one direction: a considerable constant increase every year. But the unlimited growth in energy consumption is discussed increasingly critical, not only primarily in terms of limitations but also in terms of more efficient, more intelligent, and more sustainable usage of energy. Energy-efficient technologies (EET) and renewable energy technologies are already in a competitive position in different markets, and they are also actively embedded in scientific research. Meanwhile, enormous research on key points, such as smart home, smart cities, smart environments, and smart living in general, have been executed. Applying EET to improve human well-being and to reduce energy and resource consumption is on focus. A higher degree of decentralization and intelligent Generation-Storage-Load Cells (iGSL Cells) in a Crowd Energy framework are the basics for a smarter future. So, “smart” is about the embedding of EET and decentralization concepts. And for a successful and sustainable design of smart environments, it is essential to analyze and discuss not only technical dimensions, but also sociological, economic, and political aspects.
Journal of Electronic Science and Technology (JEST) is soliciting original manuscripts for Special Section on Ener-gy-Efficient Technologies—Crowd Energy Applications (CEA) which appears on JEST periodically. This Special Section on EET intends to bring together the state-of-art research results and industrial applications of energy-efficient technologies. In this issue, Prof. Teufel will preside over this Special Section, and the Guest Editor and JEST will focus on Crowd Energy Applications. The accepted papers will be published for free and Open Access for readers.
Authors are invited to submit unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal, in the following topic areas, but not limited to:
• Crowd energy models, methods, technologies, applications
• Business models for decentralized energy generation
• Service innovation for decentralized energy generation
• Socio-political aspects of energy prosumer behavior
• Energy prosumer’s decision making processes
• Security in terms of Crowd Energy and smart living
• Smart living demands: Technology, Socio-economic, Politics
• Smart metering and dynamic pricing
• Energy-aware and energy-efficient computing
• Energy-efficient communication, networking, and protocols
• Energy-efficient storage systems
• Efficient B2G and V2G implementations
• Efficient power generation/conversion
• Efficient power transmission/distribution
• Energy-efficient transport and logistics
• Energy monitoring and management
Paper Submission Deadline: 26th June 2016
