Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Sustainable Development Goals are the top priority at international forums nowadays to achieve a better, cleaner and more sustainable future for all. The same is not possible without access to sustainable energy access for all. Energy services have a strong impact on productivity, health, education, food and water security, and communication services. This can be attained by focusing on Energy and Environmental efficiency solutions supported by sustainable Financing. There is a need for implementing proper policies that promote sustainable economic and financial development.

Steps for accessing renewable sources of energy and adopting innovative technologies are to be encouraged to reduce pollution and energy emission around the world. Costing, market share and policy are the main constraints for the development of renewable energy. Through proper investing, planning and deploying financial resources can positively contribute to sustainable development.

This Special Issue welcomes contributions that support and advance the UN's Sustainable Development Goals linked to energy, economics and financial efficiency at the regional or national level. We invite original research and review papers related to the broader field of finance, economics, and sustainable energy. The aim of the Special Issue is to communicate the most interesting and relevant findings, solutions, innovative ideas, and technologies to support sustainable development in sustainable energy.

This paper presents an analysis of the costs, failure rate, vulnerability, and safety of electric, hybrid, and internal combustion vehicles (EV, HEV, and ICEV), including a review of literature sources, calculations, and investigations. Many literature sources do not provide information on maintenance costs (including repairs and servicing) and limit themselves to energy costs only. However, this cost is not the total cost of the maintenance of a vehicle. There is a lack of analysis of the difference between the maintenance and operating costs of vehicles. Similarly, vulnerability is difficult to determine in vehicles that are used for a short time in the market. The article presents an analysis of literature sources and industry reports on electromobility on maintenance costs, determines the failure rate, calculates vulnerability indices based on a survey, and carries out an expert risk assessment using the FMEA method. In the surveyed companies, the largest percentage of repairs are maintenance and service, mechanical, electrical and electronic, bodywork, and other repairs for each vehicle. Some of the most common faults in electric and hybrid vehicles are battery failures. The only hazard with a tolerable impact is the lack of sufficient data in the maintenance analysis. This risk can be mitigated in subsequent stages of product readiness once more data have been analysed. Full article

Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) compiler infrastructure is a useful tool for building just-in-time (JIT) compilers, besides its reliable front end represented by a clang compiler and its elaborated middle end containing different optimizations that improve the runtime performance. This paper specifically addresses the part of building a JIT compiler using an LLVM with the scope of obtaining the hardware architecture details of the underlying machine such as the number of cores and the number of logical cores per processing unit and providing them to the NUMA-BTLP static thread classification algorithm and to the NUMA-BTDM static thread mapping algorithm. Afterwards, the hardware-aware algorithms are run using the JIT compiler within an optimization pass. The JIT compiler in this paper is designed to run on a parallel C/C++ application (which creates threads using Pthreads), before the first time the application is executed on a machine. To achieve this, the JIT compiler takes the native code of the application, obtains the corresponding LLVM IR (Intermediate Representation) for the native code and executes the hardware-aware thread classification and the thread mapping algorithms on the IR. The NUMA-Balanced Task and Loop Parallelism (NUMA-BTLP) and NUMA-Balanced Thread and Data Mapping (NUMA-BTDM) are expected to optimize the energy consumption by up to 15% on the NUMA systems.

Abstract
We investigate whether oil-price uncertainty helps forecast the international stock returns of ten advanced and emerging countries. We consider an out-of-sample period of August 1925 to September 2021, with an in-sample period between August 1920 and July 1925, and employ a quantile-predictive-regression approach, [...] Read more.
We investigate whether oil-price uncertainty helps forecast the international stock returns of ten advanced and emerging countries. We consider an out-of-sample period of August 1925 to September 2021, with an in-sample period between August 1920 and July 1925, and employ a quantile-predictive-regression approach, which is more informative relative to a linear model, as it investigates the ability of oil-price uncertainty to forecast the entire conditional distribution of stock returns Based on a recursive estimation scheme, we draw the following main conclusions: the quantile-predictive-regression approach using oil-price uncertainty as a predictor statistically outperforms the corresponding quantile-based constant-mean model for all ten countries at certain quantiles (capturing normal, bear, and bull markets), and over specific forecast horizons, compared to forecastability being detected for eight countries under the linear predictive model. Importantly, we detect forecasting gains in many more horizons (at particular quantiles) compared to the linear case. In addition, an oil-price uncertainty-based state-contingent spillover analysis reveals that the ten equity markets are connected more tightly at the upper regime, suggesting that heightened oil-market volatility erodes the benefits from diversification across equity markets.
