XIII INTERNATIONAL ACADEMIC SYMPOSIUM: Strategies for 2050: energy and industry perspectives

Fecha: febrero 04, 2025Hora: 9h - 18h

Aula Magna - Edifici Històric de la UB


A growing number of countries are announcing firm commitments to achieve net-zero emissions in the coming decades. However, it is imperative to take an additional step to understand how economies evolve and adapt to these new scenarios. In this context, it is essential to examine the pathways to transition to a net-zero energy system by 2050, ensuring a stable and affordable energy supply, providing universal access to energy, and fostering sustainable economic growth. Keeping the spirit of previous years, the Symposium will offer a platform for debate and discussion on how the different actors within the innovation ecosystem can contribute to achieving the climate targets. Authors are invited to submit empirical papers emphasizing the energy policy implications relevant to oil, gas, or electricity sector.
