The aim of this Special Issue is to provide statistically-valid prices, financial returns, and volatility of fossil fuels, simultaneously with carbon emission prices; include fossil fuel and carbon emissions as financial commodities in financial portfolios; use fossil fuel and carbon emissions in optimal hedging (or insurance) of financial portfolios; evaluate the impacts on the environment and sustainability of pricing fossil fuel and carbon emissions; and evaluate the effects on health and medical care costs of pricing fossil fuel and carbon emissions.
The scope of this Special Issue is to analyze the following topics:
(i) international pricing of fossil energy sources, namely oil, coal, gas and nuclear;
(ii) domestic pricing of fossil energy sources, namely oil, coal, gas and nuclear;
(iii) modelling international and domestic fossil fuel emission prices;
(iv) modelling international and domestic carbon emission prices;
(v) estimation multivariate financial returns and volatility;
(vi) use of alternative multivariate volatility models, including conditional, stochastic and realized volatility models;
(vii) inclusion of fossil fuel and carbon emissions as financial commodities in financial portfolios;
(viii) use of fossil fuel and carbon emissions in optimal hedging (or insurance) of financial portfolios;
(ix) impacts on the environment and sustainability of pricing fossil fuel and carbon emissions;
(x) impacts on health and medical care costs of pricing fossil fuel and carbon emissions.
