Auditori - Parc Científic de Barcelona. Baldiri i Reixac Street, 4-8. Barcelona


The Symposium on Energy and Environmental Policy will bring together high ranking researchers in the field of energy economics. The meeting will examine various questions related to the low carbon alternatives (energy storage, RES-E, and shale gas), the markets and networks (energy losses, CO2 market design and distributed generation), and the environmental policies (RES-E promotion, consumption side policies, industrial policy for climate change mitigation, and environmental R&D investment).
The meeting, to be held in Barcelona on 02 February 2016, 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 markets and sustainability.
