Special Issue in Energies: Opportunities and Challenges in Creating a Sustainable and Resilient Net-Zero Carbon Emissions Future
With the announcement of the European Green Deal, which defines a set of policy initiatives aimed at achieving a 50–55% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and making Europe climate neutral in 2050, the challenge of energy transition becomes even more critical. The transformation of national energy systems towards sustainability is progressing throughout all Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, yet the goals and results are different. Most Member States have made substantial progress towards meeting their long-term commitments of emissions reductions. However, some block members have struggled to meet their obligations. The effective energy transition requires the introduction of appropriately designed policy instruments and of robust economic analyses that ensure the best possible outcomes at the lowest costs for society. In this context, this Special Issue aims to bring into the discussion the challenges that CEE countries have to face and overcome while undergoing energy transition.
Contributions on the following topics, among others, are invited:
- Energy transition;
- Economics of energy systems;
- Climate and energy policy instruments;
- Power generation system transition;
- Intelligent power and district heating networks;
- Demand-side management and energy storage;
- Integration of energy markets;
- Energy efficiency;
- Renewable energy;
- Low- and zero-emission transport;
- Smart grids.
