Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent global events have highlighted several major energy security issues not only in Europe but also internationally. In parallel, the European Green Deal emerged as the EU’s response to overcome the environmental and energy challenges of the 21st century. Starting from the current security conditions and the introduction of the European Green Deal, the main purpose of this Special Issue, which is titled “The EU’s Energy Security and the Green Deal”, is to highlight both the politics of the Green Deal and the energy security issues in the European Union.

In this regard, this Special Issue provides an opportunity for scholars to review the issue of the EU’s Energy Security and evaluate previously unaddressed aspects of the European Green Deal. It is evident that recent developments regarding the global energy crisis have changed the geopolitical environment, creating energy challenges worldwide. What are the energy security challenges at the level of the European Union? How can they be treated?

The research contributions of this Special Issue may include either evaluation of the economics of the European Green Deal or case studies related to energy security challenges in the wider area. Original research papers, reviews, successful case studies and applications, as well as opinion papers of high quality and novelty on “The EU’s Energy Security and the Green Deal” are more than welcome.

This paper deals with the creation, in realistic terms, of an offshore wind farm between the Greek islands of Karpathos and Kassos in the Dodecanese complex. In this context, the terms and conditions for the possible existence of an offshore wind park in Greece are analyzed; the technical components of such a project are described; the offshore wind farm, which was designed by the authors, is presented in detail; and the location selected for its installation is assessed. Moreover, the benefits for the islands of Karpathos and Kassos and for the Greek State, as well as financial data adapted to this specific offshore wind farm and SWOT analysis for the two phases of the project, are presented. The authors conclude that an investment in this project would be viable in economic terms and feasible, despite it being a small-scale project. Full article
