Special Issue "Sustainable Energy and Environmental Protection: The Role of Science in Society"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2016)
Scientific advice is fundamental for supporting the policy and regulatory choices concerning sustainable energy and environmental protection. However, the dialogue between scientists and policy-makers is partly affected by socio-political considerations about the role of science in society. Under the research framework of the four year IRSES Program, “Evaluating Policies for Sustainable Energy Investments: Towards an Integrated Approach on the National and International Stage” (EPSEI), which is funded by the European Commission, this Special Issue comprises of selected papers concerning the functions of science in China and the Russian Federation. In addition, we encourage authors to submit both review and original research articles that include analysis on the scientific support for energy sustainability in several world areas.
