Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy is used to uphold a certain standard of living, to ensure national and strategic interests, and to investigate energy alternatives. Green energy transmission infrastructure is the backbone of the world's power system, ensuring efficient, reliable, and affordable electricity for homes, industries, and communities. In 2015, the Paris Agreement set a production cap on fossil fuels to keep global warming below 1.5 °C.  Green energy transmissions are cost-effective and critical for meeting the sustainable development goals of 100% clean and efficient electricity by 2030 as well as achieving a carbon-neutral economy by 2050.

Therefore, this Special Issue sheds light on the future and sustainable development of green energy transmission. This Special Issue welcomes papers related to clean energy (geothermal energy, hydropower, solar energy, wind energy), nuclear energy, low-carbon technologies, and energy transition in all sectors (industries, agriculture, transport and households). We also welcome both qualitative and quantitative research, as well as empirical and theoretical works.

Several researchers have studied the environmental policy stringency and ecological innovation regarding CO2 emissions and renewable energy consumption; however, the impact of environmental policy stringency, technological innovation, FDI, and ecological innovation on energy transition has not been studied in the case of NICs. For this purpose, panel quantile regression models are applied in the context of NICs from 2000 to 2021. Our empirical results show that the effect of foreign direct investment is positive and statistically significant on energy transition. On the other hand the variables environmental policy stringency, eco-innovation, and ICT-trade have an inverse effect on energy transition. Therefore, the findings of the study also provide policy implications that indicate NICs need to optimize their trade structure and re-innovate the latest innovation spillovers, and strict environmental policies should be introduced to facilitate energy transition in NICs.
