Special Issue “Accelerating Renewable Energy Transition Post Major World Events”: The world economy is currently facing the most extreme economic shock since the Second World War. Against this dire macroeconomic situation, the aim of the current Special Issue is to examine how to build back better and to accelerate renewable energy transition in order to withstand the next big shocks coming our way: climate and ecological breakdown. The global lockdown has meant severe changes in our life and particularly our transport patterns but has only given us a small reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions. Millions of people have also lost their jobs. With a focus on green growth, the circular economy, energy efficiency and clean renewable energy post major word events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, this Special Issue seeks to stimulate critical debate on business leadership and government policy innovations in renewables and fossil fuels energy transition.
