Description & Coverage
Description:

Energy and environmental finance (EEF) is an emerging global phenomenon. During the last few decades, many countries started monitoring EEF practices. Major components of these practices include costs, fraud, scandals, and more. Among several problems, the most prevalent is the lack of awareness about the issues of EEF among various stakeholders.

The Handbook of Research on Energy and Environmental Finance 4.0 is an international reference that provides understanding and lessons learned in all aspects of EEF in individual, organizational, and societal experiences. This book examines research in the shape of experience, implementation, and application. Covering topics such as clean power, energy poverty, and environmental degradation, this book is a dynamic resource for academicians, researchers, professionals who work within the domains of EEF, EEF regulators, scholars of EEF, managers involved in EEF organizations, law practitioners involved in EEF regulations, auditors involved in audit and control systems of EEF, university professors, and students pursuing studies and research in EEF.

Reviews & Statements

Regarding the chapter titled "Financial Assessment Model for Energy Streams: Evidence From the Middle East":

According to the available statistics of the Iranian Industries Organization, about 334 different types of industries have been identified and confirmed. Each industry has a huge portfolio of similar industries. This study was conducted empirically in certain clusters. Industries were divided into 8 separate groups with 4 main factors, depending on nominal capacity. The most important factors involved were the number of employees, electricity, fuel, and water consumed. The reported values were shifted and estimated based on energy stream/revenue in currency. The initial data of this study were the findings of the both Iranian industries organization and the Iranian environment protection agency that assessed before the construction of each industry individually. The information encompassed the most authoritative database for Iranian industries, which is the first research published in English in this regard. In the present chapter, we tried to identify the input (initial feed or energy stream) and output (products shifted in the currency as revenue) materials introduced into industries, energy consumed for industries individually, the weighted average of factors among whole industries using multi-criteria decision-making models, and significant differences and correlation among industries and their factors. The investigated variables are important to develop a new type of classification for industries based on their performance via data envelopment analysis and executing energy streams.
