Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The importance of global energy economics is becoming more crucial for building effective energy policy to balance the increasing energy demand and supply while minimizing energy-related CO2 emissions. As there are still many people without access to electricity, it is expected that the amount of global energy consumption will continue to rise. Thus, if no energy policy is implemented to transition from fossil fuel energy toward renewable energy, the speed of environmental damages caused by greenhouse gas emissions will progress at an unprecedented pace.

This Special Edition hopes to collect studies that will help to understand the situation of the current energy policy in various countries and how they are striving to shift toward renewable energy as well as analyze energy markets to reveal their present conditions. This Special Issue also invites diverse topics related to global energy economics and the implications of energy-related policies. Below are some of the potential topics that are related to the focus of this Special Issue: 

  • Global/regional fossil fuel energy markets;
  • Global/regional renewable energy markets;
  • Electric vehicle adoption;
  • Energy policy and climate change;
  • Energy efficiency development;
  • Energy policy in developed and developing nations;
  • Energy policy in energy security;
  • Global/regional policies to reduce energy poverty;
  • Global/regional policies for combating the effects of COVID-19 on the energy sector.
