Achieving the energy shift requires an evolution of the structural and financial structures to develop, finance, and deploy low-carbon assets.

This article conducts a bibliometric analysis of the academic publications on the financing of renewable energies referenced in Web of Science up to June 2018. Our analysis reveals 11 main clusters. We highlight the fact that a majority of the sample focuses on market-based policy instruments used to support renewable energy development.
This paper examines the cost competitiveness of an extra-large-scale (275,000 m3/d) solar-powered desalination, taking as a case study the Chtouka Ait Baha plant in Morocco.
In this article we use the recent Covid-19 crisis to investigate what motivates individuals in their decisions to deal with two externalities, namely disease transmission, in particular social distancing, and the willingness to undertake green expenditure.
