Call for papers: Journal of Industrial Ecology special issue on Environmental Impacts of Demand-Side Technologies and Strategies for Carbon Mitigation
Deadline: June 30, 2014
For the full call for papers, please go to: http://jie.yale.edu/JIE-cfp-Demand-Side. Strategies to reduce the emission of greenhouse (GHG) gases include supply and demand side approaches. The focus of this special issue is on the demand side approaches. Most research focuses on the efficacy and cost of these technologies and strategies in reducing GHG emissions. These strategies, however, also have non-GHG environmental impacts on air and water quality, on human and ecosystem health as well as natural resource impacts. Research on these non-GHG impacts is less developed than that which examines carbon mitigation. This is especially true for demand-side strategies, which focus on improvements in energy and material efficiency.
This special issue is intended to fill that gap.
