Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Energy consumption and economic growth have been of great interest to researchers and policymakers. Knowledge of the actual causal relationship between energy and the economy with respect to the environment will help us to model environmental and growth policies. The development of new energy and environmental policies, the new climate regime, and the development of new scientific techniques provide us with opportunities for further research. Projects on energy efficiency have been prioritized in the portfolio of policies of many countries, as these policies are considered to be no-regret options, meaning that they may even provide gains for the economy. In order to fill a gap in the literature, this Special Issue aims to provide an analysis of energy–environment–economy interrelations, paying special attention to the potential impact of energy and economic growth on the environment.
