The Seminar on Sustainable Economy was represented in the XLV International Conference on Regional Science by our researchers María Jesús Gutiérrez-Pedrero and María Jesús Ruiz-Fuensanta who presented the paper: «Determinantes regionales en la localización de fuentes de generación de energías renovables. El caso europeo.» The Conference was held in Castellón (Spain) on November 20th-22nd, 2019.
The 2015 Paris Agreement outlined a global strategy to mitigate the effects of climate change for the post-Kyoto period. One of the commitments of the European Union (EU) adopted from this agreement was to achieve at least a share of renewable energy sources in at least 32% of the energy mix.
In 2017, wind power technology generated 362.4 TWh in the EU, accounting for 36% of the electricity generated by renewable technologies, 11% of the gross electricity generation, and 4.1% of the energy production of the EU. It was the first renewable technology in electricity generation.
Wind power plays a central role in the European strategy to combat climate change. In addition, investment in wind power technology strengthens European energy independence, and it is configured as a high-tech economic sector with a high impact on the European economy. Therefore, the analysis of wind power in the EU is a relevant effort . Thus, this Special Issue, entitled “Economic Analysis of Wind Power in the EU”, is proposed for the international journal Energies, which is an SCIE journal (2018 IF = 2.707). This Special Issue mainly covers original research and studies related, but not limited, to several topics, including strategies and public policies for wind power deployment in the EU, evolution of capital and operational expenditures, identification of the determinants of wind power capacity investment, or the assessment of the impact of wind power on the global economic activity, electricity markets and networks, or electricity prices. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of a rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
We invite you to submit your original work to this Special Issue. We are looking forward to receiving your outstanding research.
Deadline: April 30th, 2020.

The 2019 Spring Workshop of the Seminar on Sustainable Economy was held at the Faculty of Law and Social Sciences in Ciudad Real last May, 23. It was a worthwhile as well as a fun meeting where several investigations were presented. Standing: Fernando Callejas (UCLM CR), Gemma Patón (UCLM CR), Christoph P. Kiefer (CSIC), Cristina Peñasco (Cambridge U.), Pedro Gento (UCLM CR), Gemma Durán (UAM), our Dean Juan José Rubio (UCLM CR), María José Gutiérrez (UCLM CR), María Jesús Ruiz (UCLM CR), Miguel A. Tarancón (UCLM CR), Consoli Quintana (UCLM CR), Eugenio Dueñas (COITI CR), Isabel Martínez (UCLM CR), Dioni Ramírez (UCLM CR); squatting: Vicent Alcántara (UAB), Pablo del Río (CSIC) and José Antonio Negrín (UCLM CR). Our speakers were: Gemma Durán, Vicent Alcántara, Cristina Peñasco and Christoph P. Kiefer. Thank you so much!
Today we have held a meeting with experts in order to discuss the role of Public Regulation in the deployment of Renewable Energy, with auctions as a specific and relevant issue. The speakers have been Antonio Jiménez-Blanco (UPM), Pablo del Río (CSIC), Luis Arroyo Jiménez (Jean Monnet Chair at UCLM) and Miguel A. Tarancón (SeS at UCLM). The meeting has been moderated by María Jesús Ruiz Fuensanta (SeS at UCLM).
We all wish you a peaceful Xmas and a happy, healthy New Year 2019!
Our Seminar on Sustainable Economy was represented in the XLIV International Conference on Regional Science by 7 team members who presented 4 papers. Maria Jesús Ruiz also coordinated a special session regarding «Energías renovables y desarrollo sostenible: eficiencia, medioambiente y revitalización económica del territorio». The Conference was held in Valencia (Spain) on November 21st-23rd, 2018. In the first picture: María Jesús Gutiérrez, Miguel Ángel Tarancón, María jesús Ruiz, Emilio López and Consoli Quintana.
