The main focus of the Global Energy and Environmental Economics Analysis Research Group (GEAR) is on the different features of energy and environmental economics. GEAR is composed of a group of researchers of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Albacete, Spain). It is a young and dynamic research group that has showed its potential in transferring knowledge and research competences (as illustrated by two PhD students, one of them already awarded), financial achievement capability (the group has obtained funding in  regional and national competitive programs for projects and a national competitive grant for PhD) and relevant research capability (with publications in top journals such as Nature Climate Change. PNAS, Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Cleaner Production, Ecological Economics, Energy Economics, Economic Systems Research or Energy  Policy among others). The group is also involved in a master degree on “Growth and Sustainable Development” that, after only five years, has attracted international students from Spain, Africa and South America. Some of the graduate students has found employments in International Institutions (like CEPAL, Chile) and in other related jobs applying posgraduate competences related to the Master and to IO Analysis.
