Circular Economy and the Energy Transition

The issue will aim at exploring the interconnections between these two strategic goals, with the objective of highlighting major synergies but also potential contradictions. Circularity may impact the energy transition from the point of view of both demand and supply. It may be introduced/promoted in the operations of the energy sector in its widest definition and support greater energy sustainability. But there are also possible contradictions between promoting an energy transition and the goal of circularity, which deserve to be explored. The guest editors for this special issue are Rita Mazzanti, Senior Legal Advisor GLENCO Sàrl, and Giacomo Luciani, Scientific Advisor Master of International Energy, Paris School of International Affairs.

Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Mazzanti at your earliest convenience. Papers should be submitted by the end of May 2021

The Hydrogen Economy

The hydrogen economy is currently one of the key emerging areas of the global energy sector. 'Hydrogen Economy' refers to the vision of using hydrogen as a clean, zero-carbon energy resource to meet the world's energy needs, replacing traditional fossil fuels and forming a substantial part of a clean energy portfolio. As a clean, flexible, high energy density fuel, hydrogen constitutes a significant area of interest for most economies. The United States, the European Union, Japan, China, Australia and others are ramping up their efforts to move towards a hydrogen economy. This Special Issue will be focusing on the legal, political, contractual and market aspects of hydrogen.
