Collective intelligence (CI) means that a group of people or animals can solve problems efficiently and offer greater insight and a better answer than any individual could provide. Fuzzy sets have been integrated with collective intelligence techniques in order to allow uncertain, vague imprecise and incomplete information to be incorporated to the CI models. The fuzzy CI techniques have been rarely used in the solution of energy problems even they still present new research opportunities to researchers. This chapter gives the results of the literature review on fuzzy CI research for energy systems.
