Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment (EPEE) is a quarterly peer reviewed platform focusing on energy and environmental economics and policy including the economics of public utilities. Contributions from academic researchers, utility managers and policy-makers ensure a useful exchange of knowledge and experience. This approach is very important, particularly in a period when energy markets and regulatory and institutional frameworks are undergoing rapid change, and environmental issues, both local and global, are becoming increasingly important. The journal is organized mainly into two sections. The section "Observatory" includes articles in which specialists express their views about topical issues of energy and environmental policy. The "Essays" section focuses on the scientific papers, mainly concerning the microeconomics and macroeconomics of energy and the environment, as well as comparative analyses of policies. All papers will be included in EconLit and Scopus. This will ensure that they will be read and cited by a worldwide audience. EPEE is edited by an international editorial board. The editorial board will be supported by a Scientific Committee composed of some of the leading international experts in the field of energy and environmental economics. EPEE is a fundamental publication on energy and environmental issues characterised by a multi-faceted perspective, an approach which is crucial for researchers, policy-makers and operators in the energy and environmental sector.
