Las week I attended an interesting conference in la Isla da Toxa, in Galicia (Spain): the 8th Atlantic Workshop on Energy and Environmental Economics. This is a micro-island in the very north west of Spain. It was quite a challenge to get there as it is far from the main airports, but I rented a car and I could do it with the help of google maps.
The conference is a two-day biannual workshop on energy and environmental economics organized by Economics for Energy with the collaboration of CEPE (ETH Zurich) and the University of Münster (CAWM) and the support of ECOBAS.
I was impressed with the quality of participants and researches explained there. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people working on similar topics of my research field. Around 60 researchers from Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the US, etc. attended the workshop, and most of them presented their research.
I had the opportunity to present some of the findings of the Metres project so far. My talk was titled: “The economic and environmental effects of an environmental fiscal reform in a dynamic CGE framework”. We have already published a paper in Sustainability journal explaining this research, but I had the opportunity to present it and answer some questions from the audience.
