Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Greenhouse gases and other pollutant emissions caused by energy consumption have posed a severe threat to environmental sustainability and human survival. Therefore, clean, renewable, and sustainable energy is greatly required daily to improve social, economic, and environmental health, leading to economic development and productivity. Moreover, in order to achieve the global carbon neutrality target, a green and low-carbon energy strategy must be promoted. Replacing fossil fuel sources with non-fossil-fuel sources is a rather challenging task. Maintaining the balance between crucial aspects such as non-polluting or very low-polluting energy sources and energy efficiency is critical to achieve steady energy supplies and an excellent ecological environment.

This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and the public to obtain advanced academic achievements in energy conservation, emission reduction, environmental sustainability, and low-carbon development. We encourage the implementation of research on green energy strategies at macro and micro levels from a theoretical or practical perspective, and we look forward to your valuable insights into energy transformation, green technology innovation, and low-carbon development. Topics of interest for this article collection include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Energy transition and low-carbon development;
  • Low-carbon technological innovation and application;
  • Green transformation and upgrading of industries;
  • Carbon neutrality and emission peaking;
  • Technological innovation and advancement in energy and environmental efficiency;
  • Sustainable energy supply and consumption;
  • The nexus between economic development and energy technological innovation to improve environmental sustainability;
  • Green finance and carbon trading;
  • Digital transition towards carbon neutrality;
  • Energy poverty and energy equity;
  • Energy conservation and carbon reduction policy;
  • The synergistic effect of pollution reduction and carbon reduction;
  • The economic and social cost of energy conservation and carbon reduction.

Compared with other developed countries, China's energy efficiency level is not optimal, but it has indeed made remarkable achievements in its long-term development, mainly due to efforts targeting the adjustment of industrial structure. This research, therefore, uses a spatial econometric model to study the energy efficiency of 30 provinces in China with data from the panel from 2004 to 2019, and studies the impact of industrial structure on energy efficiency from the overall sample, for different time periods and across the three regional scales of eastern, central and western regions. The following conclusions are drawn from the empirical analysis. (1) China's energy efficiency indicators have significant geographic spatial correlation and regional spatial structure differences. (2) In the full sample condition, the industrial structure has a positive impact on the energy efficiency of China's provinces, but it also shows a significant negative spatial spillover effect. (3) Industrial structure was positively correlated with energy efficiency from 2004 to 2011. (4) The industrial structure in the east promotes energy efficiency, while the industrial structure in the central and western regions inhibits energy efficiency improvement. (5) Government intervention and scientific and technological innovation have had a spatial impact on energy efficiency in China's provinces, while marketization and the average income of residents have had no significant impact.
