Sažetak

Increasing renewable energy consumption is considered the panacea
to tackle the issue of global warming and energy security. The
digitalization of society can provide smart solutions for energy and
environmental-related issues. Similarly, education can bring environmental
awareness and encourage individuals and firms to rely
more on renewable energy sources. We have tried to investigate
the impact of education and digitalization on the renewable
energy demand in Japan by applying the Quantile ARDL model. In
the short and long run, the estimates attached to education are
significantly positive almost all quantiles, which confirms that the
higher the level of education in Japan, the higher the renewable
energy demand. Likewise, the estimated coefficients of ICT, in both
the short and long run, are positive and significant, confirming that
increased digitalization help facilitate the renewable energy
demand in Japan. Moreover, when we observe the Wald test, the
asymmetric impact of education and digitalization are confirmed
on the renewable energy demand in the short and long run.
