Presentation

 

The Symposium on Energy Sustainability and Competitive Markets in Barcelona will bring together high ranking researchers in the field of energy economics. The meeting will examine various questions related to energy sustainability (environmental policies and technological change; the greenhouse effect and the energy mix in Europe; R&D in the energy sector, etc.). It will also analyse various issues related to competition and consumers and the business strategies required to face the challenges of global markets in the energy sector.

 

The meeting, to be held in Barcelona on 29 January 2013, forms part of the activities organised by the UB-IEB Chair in Energy Sustainability, sponsored by the Foundation for Energy and Environmental Sustainability (FUNSEAM). The group hopes that the symposium will help disseminate the work of leading researchers in the field of energy economics, with a particular emphasis on energy and environmental sustainability. The aim of the meeting is also to introduce the work of the Chair to both national and international academics and to establish a network of contacts with researchers working in the same field.
As the program shows, the caliber of the speakers and the invited specialists augurs well for the success of the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona.
