Energy is the basic driving force of economic growth and development, but energy development has produced a large amount of gases that have led to theglobal warming problem. Therefore, energy, economy, and the environment (3E) are closely correlated to each other. Moreover, energy is an important factor affecting national security, economic development, and people’s lives. Thus, governments all around the world regard energy policy as the key governmental policy and formulate energy policies suitable for national development according to the different conditions in their geographical environment, natural resources (mineral resources), and economic development process, as well as the international situation and energy supply status.
The promotion of sustainable energy policy mainly starts with “clean energy” (energy supply) and “energy saving” (energy demand). In terms of energy supply, great efforts must be made to promote the modification of energy structure and actively develop carbon-free energy and renewable energy. In terms of energy demand, various departments must focus on doing a good job in energy saving and carbon reduction. The industrial department should adjust industrial structure to make industry develop towards the direction of high value added and low energy consumption, encourage enterprises to realize clean production, and support the green energy industry, so as to achieve energy saving and carbon reduction. The transportation departments should mainly start with reducing vehicles’ energy consumption. The construction department should mainly promote green buildings and improve the energy efficiency of lighting and other electrical equipment. In terms of the public, government should encourage and promote the universal energy saving and carbon reduction movement and low-carbon consumption.
This Special Issue provides a practical and comprehensive forum for exchanging novel research ideas or empirical practices which bridge the latest energy economy, sustainable energy, energy policy, and energy saving.
The SI encompasses theoretical, analytical, empirical research, comprehensive reviews of relevant research, conceptual frameworks, and case studies of effective applications in this area.
We invite colleagues to contribute to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Energy economy
- Green energy
- Sustainable energy
- Energy research
- Energy development
