There is an increasing number of studies in the recent literature concerning renewable energy technologies, because of climate change caused by the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. In this perspective, a more efficient use of resources for a full achievement of energy efficiency is very important, but the relative empirical evidence is yet weak. The role of technological innovation is crucial, because with the investment in research and development into this area, the potential for energy saving is ever increasing. For this reason, the Special Issue will pay attention to the extent to which the investments in cleaner technology can support energy efficiency in a more sustainable context. Moreover, this Special Issue aims to provide a platform to share innovative ideas and approaches in new technologies to deal with the energy supply and demand challenges to supporting the transition to a low carbon and sustainable future. Recent studies suggest that private firms develop insufficient effort toward renewable energy. Thus, an intervention of policymakers at the worldwide level would be opportune for breaking the path dependence effect by favoring energy efficiency and cleaner technologies in terms of social optimum.
Theoretical and empirical contributions from the innovation economics and environmental economics on energy efficiency and relative public policies are welcome in this Special Issue.
