Special Issue in Sustainability: Global Energy Economics and Implications of Energy-Related Policies
As the human impact on the natural environment has reduced after the COVID-19 related lockdown was imposed in various countries, it is becoming crucial to learn the indirect effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the environment from diminished economic activities. It is known that the level of energy consumption decreased during the lockdowns in several countries, and this led to lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions. This Special Issue aims to collect studies providing useful information to discover such impacts of the COVID-19 on the economy, energy, and environment.
We would like to welcome to this Special Issue various topics revealing how the COVID-19 pandemic is influencing economic activities, and how changes in such activities have an influence on the energy sector (including impacts on energy markets), and how shifts in energy use have mitigated the human impact on the environment. The Special issue invites submissions on diverse topics relevant but not limited to the following areas:
- Effects of lockdown on global/local economies, energy sectors, and the environment;
- COVID-19 and its effect on energy markets;
- COVID-19 and its impact on the financial sector;
- COVID-19 and changes in environmental pollution (including greenhouse gas emissions).
