Head of the AU Center for research in social sciences (CRISS) Raufhon Salahodjaev along with his co-authors from Poland published a research paper in one of the top journals “Energies”.

The paper is titled “Does Renewable Energy Sector Affect Industrialization-CO2 Emissions Nexus in Europe and Central Asia?”. This study shows that renewable energy mitigates CO2 emissions.

Ten percentage points increase in renewable energy consumption reduces CO2 emissions per capita by 2.2% and renewable energy consumption compensates for the negative effect of industrialization on environmental quality.

The journal “Energies” is ranked Q1 both on Web of Science and Scopus, and impact factor 3.2. The paper can be accessed here:  https://www.mdpi.com/1996-1073/15/16/5877
