Green Computing refers to a multi-faceted and environmentally sustainable computing environment. In a broad sense, Green Computing focuses on the environmentally responsible and eco-friendly usage of computers being central to the formation of smart environments, exploration of their resources and efficient applications. As such, within this framework, one concentrates on the studies of designing, manufacturing/engineering, using and disposing of computing devices to reduce their environmental impact thus making them environmentally sustainable. Green computing is important for all classes of systems, ranging from handheld devices to large-scale data centers. Green initiatives including renewable energy, smart grids, energy efficiency are essential to the holistic, well thought out buildup of the smart environments. They are of fundamental relevance given the omnipresence of computers when offering solutions to a plethora of problems encountered in smart cities, Internet of Things (IoT), sensor networks, diverse communication channels, user-centricity and centrality of systems, AI-oriented tasks, high complex systems, supporting strategic decisions, high scale logistic problems, rapid crises response strategies, decision-making processes and risk assessment in complex and varying and unpredictable environments.

There has been a great deal of interest in the research discipline of Green Computing as well as its practical implications and a number of journals have expressed vital interest there, however from different albeit somewhat limited viewpoints thus lacking a badly needed broader perspective.

So far there has not been a unified platform that could fill this acute gap by bringing a publishing venue with an ultimate focus on green computing studied in a holistic and unified manner. The ultimate objective of this journal is to bring to the research community and practitioners a stable and recognized platform to disseminate crucial, timely, and far-reaching research results as well as establish a broad forum for fostering vital discussions and accelerate further progress.

Special Issue on Challenges for Future-Generation Virtual Power Plant Architecture, Control and Implementation
Submission Date: 2022-12-20

Virtual power plants (VPPs) are promising solutions to address the energy efficiency and decarbonization goals in smart energy systems. A VPP is a system that integrates heterogeneous sources such as distributed generation systems with intermittent renewable energies to give a reliable and friendly overall power supply. The typical characteristics and superiorities of VPP are environmental protection, renewability, high efficiency, synergy, interactivity, and effective contribution to supply-load balancing. VPPs can be utilized to tackle problems brought by the stochastic nature of renewable resources, insufficient local energy flexibility on the demand side, and lack of energy storage devices. On the other hand, the creation and operation of VPPs involve the application of complex ICT techniques dealing with the modeling of the energy assets, energy flows, and forecasting of local energy demand and generation to meet the defined goals using heuristics, and portfolio management. All of these issues put several unsolved problems in front of architecture, control, and implementation of VPPs in the future. This special issue welcomes manuscripts that deal with all aspects of technology, optimization, control, management, implementation, and ICT problems of VPPs. The subjects of interest include, but are not limited to: ● VPPs’ management and integration strategies; ● VPP communication protocol, ICT, and network security; ● Optimization methods and control designs for VPP management; ● Machine learning approaches for VPP; ● Trading and market mechanisms for VPPs; ● Data management and software development for VPPs; ● Advanced power system dynamics analysis for VPPs; ● Advanced gid-forming technologies for VPPs.

Special Issue on Selection, Application and Optimization of Computing Offloading Solutions in Mobile Edge Computing Scenarios
Submission Date: 2023-05-20

With the rapid development of mobile communications and the explosive usage of mobile devices (i.e., smart phones, laptops, tablets, etc.), the mobile Internet facilitates us with a pervasive and powerful platform to provide emerging applications. However, several mobile devices usually have limited computation capabilities and battery power. Migrating computational tasks from the distributed devices to the infrastructure-based cloud servers has the potential to address the aforementioned issues. The cloud servers are located in the center of core network and far away from the users, which may cause delay fluctuation and additional transmission energy cost. Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is an emerging paradigm, which pursues to provide better services by moving infrastructure-based cloud resources (computation, storage, bandwidth and etc.) to the edge of the network. MEC is rapidly becoming a key technology of 5G and beyond, achieving the key technical indicators of 5G business, such as ultra-low latency, ultra-high energy efficiency, and ultra-high reliability. Obviously, when multiple smart devices upload tasks at the same time, they will inevitably compete with each other for both communication and computing resources Unreasonable resource allocation can result in a low data transmission rate and high delay. Thus, the designation of the task scheduling scheme has an important influence on the performance of the MEC system. Researchers are trying different optimization tools to minimize the latency and energy consumption as well as to maximize the performance of applications in MEC. In addition, as pointed out above, the topic of topic of the computation offloading scheduling problem is not only important but also faces several challenges. This topic is very promising and will attract great interests from generalist and specialist readers, including researchers from academia and industry, mobile application developers as well as students who are engaged in this study. This spacial issue welcome researchers from both academia and industry to provide their state-of-the-art technologies and ideas covering all aspects of Computing Offloading and applications in Mobile Edge Computing.

Special Issue on Renewable Power Generation, Energy Storage, and Resource Management Challenges and Solutions
Submission Date: 2023-05-31

Solar and wind are free, renewable, and geographically spread sources of energy. They are a technically and economically viable alternative to fossil fuel sources and a trend for future energy solutions that help achieve net zero emissions across the energy value chain, from power generation or production to storage to distribution. At the same time, the recent energy crisis has made the importance of renewable energy even more prominent. Additionally, the dependence of this renewable energy on weather conditions, poses a huge challenge to the operators of the national grid and consumers with high energy demand. This special issue looks forward to study one of the best ways to enter the post-fossil fuel civilization - the research status and challenges of renewable energy generation storage and distribution, hoping that the wind and sunshine that we can feel every day can not only bring happiness but also bring an energy that contributes to the progress of human society.
