The Economic and Financial Impacts of the COVID-19 Crisis Around the World: Expect the Unexpected provides an informed, research-based in-depth understanding of the COVID-19 crisis, its impacts on households, nonfinancial firms, banks, and financial market participants, and the effectiveness of the reactions of governments and policymakers in the United States and around the world. It provides reflections and perspectives on the social costs and benefits of various policies undertaken and a toolkit of preventive measures to deal with crises beyond the COVID-19 crisis. Authors Allen N. Berger, Mustafa U. Karakaplan, and Raluca A. Roman apply their expertise to the research and data on the COVID-19 economic crisis as well as draw on their own rich research experience. They take a holistic approach that compares and contrasts this crisis with other economic and financial crises and assesses economic and financial behavior and government policies in the booms before crises and the aftermaths following them, as well as the crises themselves. They do all this with a keen eye on “Expecting the Unexpected” future crises, and policies that might anticipate them and provide better outcomes for society.

Though sustainable development goals and other international initiatives have insisted on the importance of energy access in peace building, there is still little understanding about the extent to which energy systems themselves can contribute to or mitigate structural violence. While there are ample relevant examples globally from a diverse literature and increasing body of case studies, this knowledge has not been systematically organized to show theoretical alternatives to current energy systems or deliver practical policy advice in building such alternatives.Informed by the contributions of a multidisciplinary global author pool, Energy Policy for Peace provides both a new foundation for researchers and practitioners exploring how energy systems can be changed to build positive peace, and a toolkit for redressing structural violence. The work opens by reviewing how unequal energy access strengthens structural violence. It argues that increasing access to energy access may be an important tool in mitigating structural violence. It concludes with practical policy recommendations and institutional reforms designed to mitigate the structural violence embedded in many energy systems and develop energy strategies for peace building.

Recent Developments in Green Finance, Green Growth and Carbon Neutrality explains the role of green finance in transforming the global economy into a green and carbon neutral one. The book explores the synergy between green growth strategy and green finance policy (2G) and carbon neutrality in an economic-environmental-financial framework that helps readers understand how to design a feasible path toward achieving carbon neutrality through economic initiatives and financial innovations. It shows how to apply the notion of green growth to organizations and illustrates the need for a theory of energy economics that estimates the benefits of a low-carbon transition and carbon neutrality. Sections include historical background, relevant literature necessary to understand topics, the notions of green finance, green growth and carbon neutrality from an economic perspective. Other sections cover models and methods of carbon neutrality assessment, the nexus between carbon neutrality and economic development, green growth and financial development, green finance and green energy exploration and consumption, and more. Two chapters specifically focused on UN SDGs 7 and 13 round out the book, and it concludes with a final section that gathers and integrates the concepts discussed throughout the book.

Hierarchical Modeling of Energy Systems presents a detailed methodology for hierarchical modeling of large-scale complex systems with a focus on energy systems and their expansion planning and control. General methodological principles of hierarchical modeling are analyzed, and based on this analysis, a generalized technology for the hierarchical approach is presented. The mathematical foundations of decomposition and bi-level programming, as well as the possibility of using information technologies are also considered. The theoretical propositions are demonstrated by numerous hierarchical modeling examples aimed at planning the development of the energy sector and expansion of energy systems, analyzing, and optimizing these systems, and controlling their operation. In addition, codes and sample simulations are included throughout. This is an invaluable guide for researchers, engineers, and other specialists involved in the development, control and management of energy systems, while the summary of fundamental principles and concepts in energy modeling makes this an accessible learning tool for graduate students on any course involving energy systems or energy modeling.

Handbook of Thermal Management Systems: e-Mobility and Other Energy Applications is a comprehensive reference on the thermal management of key renewable energy sources and other electronic components. With an emphasis on practical applications, the book addresses thermal management systems of batteries, fuel cells, solar panels, electric motors, as well as a range of other electronic devices that are crucial for the development of sustainable transport systems. Chapters provide a basic understanding of the thermodynamics behind the development of a thermal management system, update on Batteries, Fuel Cells, Solar Panels, and Other Electronics, provide a detailed description of components, and discuss fundamentals. Dedicated chapters then systematically examine the heating, cooling, and phase changes of each system, supported by numerical analyses, simulations and experimental data. These chapters include discussion of the latest technologies and methods and practical guidance on their application in real-world system-level projects, as well as case studies from engineering systems that are currently in operation. Finally, next-generation technologies and methods are discussed and considered.
