Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sustainability is pleased to announce a  new Special Issue entitled “Energy Transition, Energy Economics, and Environmental Sustainability”.

The world is currently witnessing a process of energy transition, which can be defined as a change from energy matrices based on fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. This transition is made possible both by technological evolution and the development of public policies and market instruments. As the energy transition increases the complexity of system management, technical–economic feasibility analysis becomes increasingly intricate, requiring innovative and interdisciplinary methodologies. This transition is also inherently linked to environmental sustainability, as it seeks to ensure the preservation of natural resources and reduce environmental damage.

This Special Issue will deal with the energy transition, energy economics, and environmental sustainability. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Financial and economic analysis;
  • Public policies and regulation;
  • Financial Market;
  • Emission trading schemes;
  • Hybrid generation systems;
  • Energy storage systems;
  • Smart grids;
  • Utility-scale technologies;
  • Distributed generation;
  • Planning and optimization;
  • Modeling and simulation;
  • Stochastic studies;
  • Efficiency analysis;
  • Risk analysis and management;
  • Environmental viability;
  • Sustainable development;
  • Green technology;
  • Applications in emerging and developing economies.
