The dramatic acceleration of climate change over the past few years has shown that it is imperative to take actions quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and, hence, to avoid devastating effects on ecosystems and human life. The adoption of renewable energy sources is regarded as an indispensable strategic choice to decarbonize the energy system and guarantee the environmental protection. An immense amount of capital is required to fund the massive transformational projects necessary to boost the transition towards a low-carbon and climate change-resilient economy.

This Research Topic provides a forum for exchanging research ideas and empirical practices that focus on green finance, investment, or lending that consider environmental effects (e.g., clean stocks and green bonds), renewable and non-renewable energies, and specifically, how the recent outbreak of COVID19 and its resulting restrictions (for travel and business) have changed the investment dynamics in these areas.

We welcomes submissions in the following areas as well as those pertaining to how COVID19 has changed the traditional views about these issues:

- Renewable and non-renewable energy planning, modelling, and forecasting
- Renewable and non-renewable energy resources and sustainable development in developing economies
- Energy efficiency and conservation
- Renewable and non-renewable energy and environmental issues
- Econometrics of energy markets
- Portfolio optimization including renewable and non-renewable energy derivatives
- Economic, social, energy, and environmental aspects of transportation
- Financialization and energy markets
- Energy markets’ financing, mergers, and acquisitions
- Pricing, hedging, and risk analysis of energy markets
- Quantitative research on green finance
- Mobilizing climate finance including liquidity and secondary markets
- Clean and green investments and interactions with traditional finance
- Behavioral aspects of green finance and investments
- International and regional conflicts in adopting environmental change policies


Keywords: Green finance, renewable energy, COVID19, crisis, investment
