  • Green finance policy design and effectiveness evaluation.
  • Role of governments in unlocking private investments in renewable energy.
  • Role of new technologies in easing green finance for renewable energy development.
  • Econometric models of climate change.
  • Measuring the social cost of carbon.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of climate finance under different institutional and environmental contexts.
  • Investor demand for climate finance opportunities.
  • Theoretical and applied contributions to sustainability-growth nexus in the sector.
  • Innovative and market-based instruments and energy efficiency.

Theme 2: CO2 capture technologies, utilisation and storage
