Concern for the environment and awareness of the need to mitigate climate change has led to the promotion of renewable energy sources by academic community, international institutions and national governments. Energy policy measures aimed to promote renewable energy sources, in addition to achieving strategic goals related to sustainability, decarbonisation and protection of the environment, also contributing to economic development. The focus on the development of modern technologies for renewable energy deployment, affect the economic activity, create new jobs based on modern knowledge and skills and generally can create the preconditions for the sustainable long-term economic development. A successful transition to renewable energy could also improve net import energy dependency of many economies and decrease economic vulnerability on external shocks related to a potential increase in the prices of traditional energy products on the global market.
This Special Issue will deal with economic impacts of renewable energy sources deployment. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Economic effects of deployment of renewable energy sources;
- The role of green economy in sustainable development;
- Policies and incentives promoting development of renewable energy sources;
- The role of renewable energy in energy import dependency;
- Institutional and financial barriers in renewable energy development;
- The effects of renewable energy development on energy prices;
- The impact of modern ICT in renewable energy deployment.
