Special Issue "Energy Transitions and Economic Change"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2014).
Interests: energy economics; economic growth; economic history; climate change; meta-analysis; bibliometrics
Addressing major policy challenges such as climate change and energy security will involve transitions to new low-carbon energy carriers and improvements in energy efficiency. When developing scenarios and policies, we can also learn from past energy transitions and large-scale changes in energy use and the economy. For this special issue we invite contributions on energy and the economy ranging from historical analyses to emissions projections and future scenarios. We invite contributions on the following topics among others:
- economics of new renewable energy technologies
- energy efficiency and the rebound effect
- energy ladder in developing countries
- historical energy transitions (biomass to coal, coal to oil etc.)
- role of energy in economic growth
- energy and climate change
- energy security
- peak oil
- economics of unconventional fossil fuels
We invite contributions from all disciplines and especially inter- and trans-disciplinary contributions.
