Energy Security and Climate Change Mitigation as Combined Areas of Analysis in Contemporary Research

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Climate change mitigation and energy security are partly interacting areas that both present future challenges. The extensive research underway within these areas is mainly conducted in separate research communities, although there are some integrative efforts. This paper examines the breadth and heterogeneity involved in treating energy security and climate change mitigation as a combined research area. The outcome is a comprehensive analytical framework which considers energy security aspects, climate change mitigation strategies, temporal scope and future perspective, analytical focus, approaches and methodologies, geographical scope, and scientific traditions and perspectives.
