We would like to invite submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject of “Innovative Methods for Smart Grids Planning and Management”. In order to meet social requirements and economic improvements, current power systems have to be modernized; thus, providing a cost-efficient, eco-friendly, and sustainable energy is one of the main issues in modern societies. In response to this demand, new features of smart grid technology have provided enormous potential to have a more reliable, ﬂexible, efﬁcient, and resilient grid. The purpose of this Special Issue is to encourage researchers to address many of the challenges faced by the transition to a smart grid.
