Special Issue "Advances in Low Carbon Technologies and Transition"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
A wide variety of low-carbon technologies and products have already spread in our society. However, policies have not been well implemented to effectively reduce CO2 emissions by promoting low-carbon technologies and products. Demand-side policies focus on maximzing a reduction in consumption-based CO2 emissions through replacing older products with higher CO2 emissions with newer products with lower CO2 emissions, whereas supply-side policies focus on minimizing production-based CO2 emissions on a production possibility frontier through achieving technological change and advancement. This Special Issue focuses on studies targeting specific products (e.g., motor vehicle, refrigerator, etc.) and/or specific technologies (e.g., steel-making technology, power generation technology, etc.) and quantifying CO2 emissions associated with products and technology systems using the reliable inventory database. Thus, this Special Issue welcomes high-quality papers on how policies can contribute to reducing CO2 emissions from consumption- and production-based perspectives.
