Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

MDPI Topics calls for interdisciplinary research in the fields of energy markets and energy finance. The goal is to gather original (unpublished) scholarly contributions on the dynamics that currently shape the energy field. Among which, we may cite:

  • The Russia–Ukraine war and the reshaping of world geopolitics: run on fossil fuels and cereals;
  • Climate change and the reply from the industry: greenwashing vs. the Porter hypothesis;
  • Cryptocurrency mining and pressure on the electricity grid;
  • On the necessary ramping-up of renewable energy to save the world from global warming;
  • Rebalancing portfolios from stocks to energy exchange-traded funds;
  • Divestment from carbon-intensive to low-carbon industrial processes;
  • Logistics of supplying Liquefied Natural Gas to the world;
  • Etc.

Any contribution pertaining to this (non-exhaustive) list of topics will be carefully considered by the team of Editors at MDPI Topics in coordination with the participating journals: Economies, Energies, JFRM, Commodities, and FinTech.

We sincerely look forward to reading your piece of research.

With best regards,

Dr. Junhua Zhao
Prof. Dr. Julien Chevallier
