Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The current energy and environmental debates seem to be in a continuous state of flux, with novel or relatively unaddressed issues frequently emerging. 

This new section bridges the scientific community’s understanding of major energy, environmental and finance issues, and decision-makers’ need to conduct relevant and appropriate policies and regulations on the basis of more accurate insights.

This section invites both detailed scientific models of various energy economic and finance issues and specific environmental problems. It covers topics related to energy economics modeling, energy impacts on financial markets, energy risks, indicators of environmental quality, and transition to renewable energy, among others. We encourage the submission of empirical papers devoted to markets for energy commodities and derivatives, energy and environmental regulation, energy supply security, the quality and efficiency of energy services, the efficacy of market-based approaches and governmental interventions, environmental technology and innovation and the environment, agricultural economics issues related to the environmental problems, and environmental behavior and responses to regulations.

This section also offers a forum where researchers can publish detailed descriptions of modern and advanced techniques and prominent energy and environmental models, together with the accompanying assessment and underlying assumptions.

The section is mainly aimed at individuals in academia, governments, and industries. It seeks to publish papers that develop and apply new methods for the application of economic and financial principles to help: (1) market stakeholders (in particular, investors, speculators, traders, portfolio managers) to consider these different scenarios when adjusting their hedging and diversification strategies, and (2) inform global decision-makers to ensure energy security and environmental protection, natural resource utilization, and ecosystem management.

Please note that we do not publish analyses that are likely to be minor extensions of the existing literature. Case studies can be considered if they demonstrate the applicability of the conducted analysis to different regions or inform the broader field of energy and environmental economics and finance.

This study analyzes the relationships and dynamics between material production, foreign direct investment (FDI), economic activity, carbon productivity, the stock market, and green tech, both in a global and European context, using panel vector autoregressive methodology (PVAR). The empirical evidence obtained for the Global Group reveals four significant and positive unidirectional causality relationships, where aggregate material production is the prominent variable. For the EU-15 group, six significant causality relationships were detected, among them three negative and three positive unidirectional relationships. The stock markets shock reveals to be the most dominant variable, despite FDI standing out as causing the greatest shock effect. Nevertheless, in the European context, limited evidence of dematerialization is detected. Economic recessions show a generally negative effect, which contrasts with the economic Kitchin cycles, which reveal the effect of a generally positive relationship. Full article
