International Policy Responses to the Energy Crisis Triggered by the Russian Invasion of Ukraine: A Global Comparison of Best Practices.

The aim of this special issue is to collect recent information on the exposure of countries and regions to the policy measures taken to combat the energy crisis triggered by the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The measures discussed and appraised will encompass energy savings and efficiency policies with different designs. In fact, it is exactly those policies and measures related to saving energy and using it more efficiently that have been underexposed both in the political response to the crisis and the academic coverage, although they have the potential to sustainably address both the energy and climate crises in the long term. The findings communicated in this special issue will provide critical knowledge and improved understanding on the strategies by different countries developed to counteract the energy crises. There is also the option to fill out an Annex for a specific country. Based on the Annex information the special issue editors will write a paper which would compare the different countries and those filling out Annexes will be co-authors of this paper.
