Interests: energy economics and policy; environmental economics and policy; development economics and policy; industrial organization of network industries; power sector reforms in developing economies
The global energy sector is experiencing disruptions from increasing digitalisation, responsiveness in energy management, diversification of energy supply and demand, integration of distributed energy resources and changing regulation and policies. The pace of disruptions vary between developed and developing economies. The aim of this Special Issue is to capture these ongoing advances in global energy disruptions as economies continue their pursuit of the energy policy trilemma of affordability, sustainability and supply security. The overarching goal is to provide a compendium of lessons based on review and progress towards a changing global energy landscape as the transition to a low-carbon economy and the response to mitigating the threat of climate change ramps up. Scientific submissions of theoretical and empirical analyses on topics related to renewable energy development and integration, electric vehicles, smarter networks, power systems storage, Paris Agreement and economic growth in developing economies and energy sector transformation are particularly welcome. Submissions are expected to rely on economics as a primary analytical tool even though the studies are interdisciplinary with wider policy relevance to academics, policymakers and practioners.
