Hassan Qudrat-Ullah, Professor, York University, 4700 Keele St., Toronto M3J 1P3, Canada (

Aymen Kayal, Associate Professor, College of Industrial Management, KFUPM, Dhahran, 31261, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (

Global climate change and global warming has the potential to severely impact both the production and consumption of energy across the globe. The Middle East region where even slightly warmer weather can result in an increased demand of energy (e.g., for more air conditioning use and energy-intensive methods for water supply), lower labor productivity (e.g., relatively few hours are available during the day), less supply of energy (e.g., hydro generation can suffer due to none or less availability of water due to rising temperature). The potential imbalance of energy demand and supply can often lead to rising electricity costs and power outages which, in turn, can have severe impact on the socio-economic welfare of the population of these countries. Although more sunny days can help in harnessing solar power, the pre-dominant use of fossil-based electricity generation by this region and the resulting environmental emissions is a major concern to be addressed. Consequently, for the decision makers, to better understand the sustainable production and consumption of energy and the related socio-economic dynamics require a systematic and integrated approach. Modeling and simulation in general and system dynamics and agent-based modeling in particular have the capabilities to deal with the complexity of the climate change and energy dynamics. Therefore, the primary aim of this book is to present, in the context of the Middle East region, the latest decision making tools, techniques, and insightful and innovative solutions that the decision makers can utilize to overcome the challenges that their energy systems face.

Unified by the common goal of making better decisions in the sustainable production and consumption of energy, we would like to invite potential authors to submit and showcase their work related to the major theme of this book, “Climate Change and Energy Dynamics in the Middle East”. In addition to relevance of your work to the Middle East, we seek both theoretical (only state of the art reviews) and empirical chapters with a focus on system dynamics, econometric, and agent-based models.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
• Energy demand dynamics
• Energy supply dynamics
• Renewable energy dynamics
• Integrated energy system
• Energy efficiency
• Energy policy decisions
• Technological advances and the dynamics of climate change and energy
• Energy and environment
• Energy security dynamics in the region and the world
• Electricity demand supply dynamics
• Climate change and its impact on energy supply
• Climate change and its impact on energy demand
• Energy policy and climate change
• Fossil-based generation of electricity
• Adaptation and mitigation strategies in the region
• Environmental emissions
• Sustainable electricity supply
• Nexus of electricity supply (demand) and sustainable development
• Low-carbon economies
• Green energy supply chains
• Disruptive technologies and the dynamics of climate change and energy

The extended abstract (2-3 pages) should explain the: (i) topic(s), (ii) the goal(s) of the chapter, (iii) a brief description and significance of your contribution within the book theme, (iv) and the utility/ real-world application of your work. A list of related keywords (8 to 10) and a (tentative) table of content of the chapter should also be included in your submission.

Proposals can be submitted by e-mail attachments to the Editors, Hassan Qudrat-Ullah, ( OR Aymen Kayal (, by April 15, 2018.
