The inherent nature of energy,i.e.,physicality,sociality and informatization,implies the inevitable and intensive interaction between energy systems and social systems.In this paper,the nature of energy was proposed,and then the concept and intention of social energy systems for electrical power were proposed.A general methodology of establishing and investigating social energy was proposed.A case study on the University of Denver (DU) campus grid was provided and studied to demonstrate the social energy concept.In the concluding remarks,the technical pathway was discussed in both social and nature sciences,to social energy,and our vision on its future.

Key words: ACP, distribution locational marginal pricing, parallel control, parallel intelligence, parallel management,social energy, socio-technical energy systems, intelligent operation in power systems
