Congratulations Santacruz, thank you for your hard work and your tenacity!!
report, which reviews the situation of the sector at the national and
international level, devotes a complete section to the analysis and evaluation
of the main macroeconomic indicators of the sector. This section has been
developed, for the third consecutive year, by the GEAR research group of the
University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM).
Some of the
main data in the report place the Spanish photovoltaic sector as a leader at the
European level and sixth worldwide.
photovoltaic sector as a whole generates a direct impact on national GDP of
3,220 million euros (0.26% of total GDP) and a total of 58,699 jobs considering
direct, indirect, and induced employment.
Last April 28th, GEAR participated in the scientific disclosure radio show “Investiga que no es poco” of CMM radio about the recent publication in Nature Communications. You can listen to the interview from the following link (notice, the interview is in Spanish):
Last March 26, the GEAR member Luis Antonio López, was invited by the “Cátedra de Economía de la Energía y del Medio Ambiente” to present the conference entitled “Principales nodos de CO2 asociados al comercio internacional entre China y el resto del mundo” in the framework of the XII Jornada de Econonía y Medio Ambiente” at the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, University of Seville.
The Global Energy and Environmental Economic Analysis Research Group (GEAR) from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) has signed a new contract with UNEF to develop the 2017-2018 macroeconomic status report of the solar photovoltaic sector in Spain.
The report will present a detailed economic, social and environmental assessment of the current situation of the solar photovoltaics Spanish sector in an MRIO context.
The report is going to be presented ending May in the UNEF’s headquarter in Madrid.
GEAR acknowledges UNEF the confidence in the Academic Research, as helps to spread to the society and to the economy the scientific knowledge.
Last March 13-14, the GEAR member Fabio Monsalve, was invited to teach a Seminar entitled “Cálculo de Huellas Antropogénicas E-MRIO. Módulo Excel” by the Master on Economics and Development and to present the conference entitled “Dejando Huella” in the framework of the “11th Jornadas de Economía y Medio Ambiente”, both at the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, University of Seville.
