Special Issue "Innovation in Business and Energy Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 July 2023) | Viewed by 17484
This Special Issue focuses on the broad topic of “Innovation in Business and Energy Systems”. As energy is in everything, to achieve some degree of focus, the Special Issue will be anchored on the role of business in energy transitions. Hence, research addressing a broad array of topics would include novel challenges to conventional energy systems and public policies, the framing and analysis of transition paths to alternative energy futures, the economic assessment of proved energy technologies that have yet to have been commercialized, the risks and opportunities associated with matching energy systems to a variety of geographical and political contexts, as well as recasting the decision calculus of the so-called “non-energy” firm to include energy consequences of its choices, for example.
Considering the significant global concern about climate change and consequences associated with energy choice and energy systems, we seek submissions that present both theoretical and empirical articles that will provoke a broad debate around the role that business enterprise may play in addressing climate change. Questions of energy choices and energy systems for valuation, business risk, and market opportunities facing business are central to such a discussion. Energy storage alternatives to batteries, managing the energy waste stream, shifting benefits and costs of energy generation across the market, methods to modify energy use, innovation in infrastructures, and business-state partnerships are welcome.
Contributions focusing on the multidimensional business of energy systems, on novel measures of financial and business risk addressing energy choice, and on the use of smart systems to monitor and control energy generation, distribution, and use are encouraged.
