Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Given the success of the Special Issue on “Energy markets and Economics”, we are pleased to announce the second call for papers for the Special Issue.

Over the last 50 years or so, significant work has gone into explaining the economic implications of energy markets, with a focus on crude oil or aggregate energy consumption. This issue aims to bring together papers that provide economic insights into the modern energy market which is still dominated by crude oil but has expanded to incorporate new energy sources in the form of coal, natural gas, and a mixture of renewable energy sources. Given the differences in the dynamics at play with different energy sources, particularly in relation to price determination, the impact they have on the environment, their importance in the energy mix and energy policy, and so forth, it becomes imperative to check their behavior using economic models.

The broad topics of interest to the Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Does renewable and nonrenewable energy consumption lead to differing behavior in economic variables?
  • Does one need to consider the different energy mix when explaining the economic implications of energy markets?
  • Do energy prices co-move?
  • Can energy prices explain the exchange rate movements?
  • How persistent are energy shocks, and do they differ depending on different energy mix? How sensitive are other components of economic growth to energy markets?
  • Is renewable energy disruptive?

Due to the crucial implication of oil risks for economic growth and policy making, the aim of this paper is to explore the heterogeneous interconnections of supply or demand in oil risks over time horizons and different countries. Specifically, we first examine the correlation of supply or demand in oil return risks and show the relationships in different countries based on wavelet coherence. Furthermore, we explore the time-varying interconnections between supply- or demand-side and oil return risks, as well as oil producers and demand countries. The empirical results show that the correlation between supply and oil return risks is relatively stable, whereas the linkage between demand and oil return risks shows greater volatility due to the impact of specific events. Further study indicates that there are heterogeneous interconnections between supply- or demand-side and oil return risks over sample periods. Specifically, the sign of response could be divided into four phases, i.e., 1997–2002, 2002–2010, 2010–2013 and 2014–2018. In addition, the interconnections of the demand side could be divided into three phases due to the sign of it. What is more, the dynamic interconnections of oil producers’ or countries’ demands behave quite heterogeneously in different countries. Thus policymakers should focus on the coordination level and space capacity in the global crude oil market. Full article
