Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent energy crisis and economic and environmental sustainability are among the biggest challenges in the contemporary world. As one of the primary tools for research and decision-making in the areas of economic development, energy policy and ecology, national accounting systems (NAS) have an important role in answering these challenges. The central position of national accounts in statistical systems, and along with their worldwide use and acceptance, reinforces their usefulness and importance as a source role as a universal language and body of factual information on the economy, energy and environment. Due to their ability to provide a comprehensive picture of the economic system, the models that are based on NAS (e.g., input–output and stock-flow consistent models) are widely used in environmental studies, linking economic and environmental variables on the demand and supply sides. All these considerations motivate the proposal of this Special Issue, which aims to collect empirical studies and theoretical contributions exploring the linkages between the economy, energy and the environment.

Special topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Climate change and NAS;
  • Carbon emission estimations;
  • Energy price shocks;
  • Environmental input-output modelling;
  • Environmental and energy factors in growth accounting;
  • Extended supply and use tables;
  • E3 (economy–energy–environment) modelling;
  • Stock-flow ecological modelling;  
  • Energy and environmentally adjusted productivity;
  • Network analysis

This paper develops a supply and uses a model to estimate the direct and indirect contribution of costs to the formation of energy prices. The model is implemented into the Greek economy based on data from the supply and use tables. The findings of the analysis indicate that the main component of energy prices are profits, mainly distributed to the energy sector itself, and imports, which mostly concern Mining and quarrying products and Coke and refined petroleum products imported from non-EU countries. As far as the contribution of the energy sector to the price formation of the other industries of the Greek economy is concerned, it is found that the energy sector mainly contributes to the price formation of industrial sectors. The results imply that the containment of energy prices should be principally based on an income policy that would limit excessive profits within the energy sector and an import substitution policy towards the exploitation of domestic mining and quarrying products as well as coke and refined petroleum products.
