Special Issue: "Energy Markets and Policy Implications"

Journal: Energy Policy 

Guest-editors: Dr. Kostas Andriosopoulos, Prof. Constantin Zopounidis, Dr. Spiros Papaefthimiou, Dr. Michael Doumpos.

The objective of the Special Issue is to present new research results on the theory and modern practice of modeling and management of energy systems, emphasizing on their policy implications. The areas of interest include, networks design and management, oil and gas, smart grids, production optimization, efficiency analysis, optimization and assessment of renewable and sustainable/green energy systems, environmental issues, risk management, decision-making in the energy markets, and energy pricing, among others. The Special Issue seeks to publish novel research and reflect the most recent advances on the latest contributions on the above areas, covering new modeling techniques and formulations, as well as innovative case studies, providing  both policymakers and market participants with the utmost important research output for policy development and monitoring purposes.

   

Special Issue: "Energy Financial Management"

Journal: Energy Markets

Guest editors: Kostas Andriosopoulos, Spiros Papaefthimiou, Constantin Zopounidis. 

The papers included in this issue of The Journal of Energy Markets are all related to the theme of financial management and seek to present new research  on  the theory and modern practice of modeling, risk management, asset pricing and energy management. Aspects of electricity markets, carbon emissions  forecasting and risk evaluation in renewables are particularly topical and feature strongly within these papers. The diverse papers included in this issue not only offer new insights into a number of matters but also provide various leads for further interesting research. All of these papers have benefited from the work of referees and from comments from participants at the 53rd Meeting of the EuroWorking Group on Commodities and Financial Modelling (EWGCFM) and the 2nd International Conference of the Research Centre for Energy Management (RCEM), which took place on May 22-24, 2014 in Chania, Crete. This research event was organized by the Technical University of Crete, in collaboration with the RCEM at the ESCP Europe Business School, under the auspices of the EWGCFM.

  

Special Issue: "Recent Developments in Energy Modeling and Management"

Journal: Energy Systems

Guest editors: Dr. Spiros Papaefthimiou, Dr. Kostas Andriosopoulos, Prof. Constantin Zopounidis.

Some of the papers included in this Special Issue have been presented at the 2nd International Conference of the Research Centre for Energy Management (RCEM) which took place on 22–24 of May, 2014 in Chania, Crete. The Conference was organized by the Technical University of Crete, in collaboration with the RCEM at ESCP Europe Business School and aimed to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and to present new research results on the theory and modern practice of modelling, risk management, asset pricing and energy management, with also a focus on commodities modelling and regulations. Hence, this Special Issue comprises eight papers and contains an eclectic collection of research ideas into a number of different facets of energy markets, including high-quality papers on aspects of electricity markets, oil prices forecasting, and renewable technologies.
