Researchers in the field of Energy study the sources, production, use, and demand for energy in the past, present and future. The Energy Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Energy scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
The field of Energy has become increasingly complex and important in recent decades. Tremendous environmental and technological changes have occurred, requiring a global reexamination of the energy industry and policy. These recent shifts require Energy researchers to cooperate with experts from many other disciplines. Researchers in fields such as Sustainability, Economics, Law and Innovation are needed to collaborate with Energy researchers to address important challenges: determining global and local policies, enhancing security of supplies and improving energy relations across borders and organizations, and more.
