  • Digitalization of Solar Energy Systems

This special issue explores the impact of digitalisation on solar energy systems, merging technology and sustainability. As solar energy continues to play a central role in the fight against climate change, the integration of digital technology offers a unique opportunity to improve efficiency, reliability and overall performance. The focus is on exploring synergies between innovations such as IoT, AI and data analytics to optimise the life cycle of solar energy systems. Authors can submit multidisciplinary case studies, trends, and applications that use digital solutions to address challenges in resource assessment, system monitoring, maintenance, and grid integration. This issue aims to deepen understanding at the intersection of renewable energy and digital technology, and provide insights for the advancement of sustainable energy. Researchers and practitioners are invited to share their expertise on the potential of digitalisation in shaping the future of solar energy.

Deadline for Submissions: 31 March 2025
