Special Issue "Energy Finance"
A special issue of International Journal of Financial Studies (ISSN 2227-7072).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2018
The energy landscape has recently experienced a number of substantial developments. In Europe, a number of new rules concerning environmental issues, as well as developments in energy efficiency towards a less carbon-intensive production pattern, guide us to develop new schemes in finance that can defend such developments, while energy consumption, especially across Asia, is still strong, despite a brief decline due to recessionary phases in China. In the U.S., the territory substantially needs a reform of the country’s energy mix in a sense that it will overcome the country’s supply dependency from traditional oil consumption.
The emergence of such crucial developments in the area of energy finance require a number of recent studies expected to shed light on these issues, by bringing together researchers in energy and finance. More specifically, these studies will attempt to explore: i) how countries in an attempt to reduce (fossil) energy use and turn into renewable could have an impact on lending activities, both in terms of client demand, due diligence procedures, and new product development, ii) specific financing issues for energy efficiency, iii) the potential role of government regulation in developing new financing schemes, and iv) other issues relevant to the evolution of energy efficiency financing and investment.
