 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
LINE 1. SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT OF RENEWABLE ENERGY IN ANDALUSIA

Description:

Investigation conducted after signing a research agreement between the University of Seville and the
Andalusian Energy Agency to assess the socioeconomic impact of power plant operations needed to
fulfill the objectives of PASENER. The research is conducted for each type of renewable energy. The
study is based on a computable general equilibrium model derived from the Social Accounting Matrix of
Andalusia.

LINE 2. COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE TREATMENT OF RENEWABLE ENERGY WITHIN THE COUNTRIES
OF THE EU-27. ANDALUSIAN ENERGY AGENCY

Description:

Investigation conducted after signing a research agreement between the University of Seville and the
Andalusian Energy Agency which aimed at conducting a review of the incentives that exist in the EU-27
for the promotion of renewable energy in the areas of electric power, heating and cooling and
transport.


LINE 3. FUNDING SYSTEM OF THE TARIFF DEFICIT.

Description:

The recent report of the National Energy Commission (NEC) proposes that part of the tariff deficit be
funded by the revenue generated from the sale of carbon credits by the next National Allocation Plan.
The objective of this project would be to estimate the revenue generated from the sale and its
consequential reduction of the associated tariff deficit as proposed by the NEC.

LINE 4. ECONOMIC VALUATION OF RENEWABLE ENERGY IN TERMS OF CO2 EMISSIONS REDUCTION

Description:

The aforementioned report of the National Energy Commission is particularly critical of the premiums
system for electric power generated from solar thermal plants. Since the wholesale price of the various
technologies do not include the economic value of non-CO2 emissions compared to other “dirty”
technologies presented in the Spanish mix (mainly thermal and combined cycle), this project contains
several works, among which is an estimate of the net balance of CO2 emissions (hypothesis of the
displacement of dirty technologies for this clean technology) and the economic value of non-CO2
emissions.

This would allow a comparison with the premiums system cost.

The economic valuation of non-CO2 emissions would be added to the impact in reducing the current
account of the payment balance deficit.

LINE 5. GROSS AND NET IMPACT ANALYSIS REGARDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOLAR THERMAL
ENERGY.

Description:

Based on the achievement of the goals established by the Spanish Renewable Energy Plan (PER 2012-
2020), this research project aims to analyze the gross impact that solar thermal energy development
could have in Spain. The estimate of the net impact is derived from a displacement hypothesis of equal
installed capacity of a conventional contaminant technology. The study is developed from a linear
general equilibrium model.


LINE 6. ENERGY EFFICIENCY PLANS ANALYSIS FOR SPAIN (2008-2012) and (2011-2020)

Description:

This project aims to assess the results achieved by Spains 2008-2012 Energy Saving and Efficiency
Strategy Action Plan in terms of savings in emissions and energy consumption in their various actions,
as well as the analysis of energy efficiency from the viewpoint of the proposals included in the Energy
Saving and Efficiency Action Plan 2011-2020, having as its objective a 20% savings of primary energy
consumption by 2020.

LINE 7. LOCAL ENERGY MEASURES TAKEN THROUGH THE COVENANT OF MAYORS. THE ROLE OF CITIES
IN ENERGY DEVELOPMENT.

Description:

The role of cities in the reduction of contaminant emissions has been highlighted by the European
Commission, which considers them to be vital components in the climate battle. In addition to their
environmental role, cities are also deemed to be an essential link to achieve the recent energy
objectives. Europe has developed a movement of cities committed to reducing emissions through the
development of energy policies relating to efficiency and renewable energy production and
consumption. In this framework, the following papers are being developed in collaboration with the
Andalusian Government Agency of Water and the Environment.

LINE 8. PROMOTIONAL MEASURES OF LOW-TEMPERATURE SOLAR THERMAL ENERGY.

Description:

This project aims to analyze the current status of solar thermal energy, both in Spain and worldwide.
Establishing a relationship between the promotional measures that have been established and the
results obtained.


LINE 9. EFFECTS OF A REACTIVATION OF NUCLEAR MORATORIUM POLICY FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY.

Description:

The Fukushima nuclear accident can reactivate the nuclear moratorium policy in countries such as
Germany.

The reintroduction of the moratorium can result in a greater role of RES in its electricity mix.

Since Spain currently exceeds its electricity generation capacity, the closing of German nuclear
facilities would favor the possibility of exporting power, provided that it can be supported by the
transmission network.

Project Structure:

A) Estimated volume of GWh that Germany would need to import in the event that their oldest nuclear
plant currently in production should shut down.

B) Spains estimated investment production costs of the kwh needed in Germany (with all aspects
associated with maintenance and other relevant cost) and, if at all possible, the socioeconomic impact
for Spain.

C) Calculate the transportation costs of an amount equivalent to the energy of Spain – Germany based
on the location of the manufacturing plants in Spain.

D) Estimated revenue generated by the sale of electric power and its impact on the commercial trade
balance.

LINE 10. ESTIMATION OF WORLDWIDE ENERGY CONSUMPTION BY 2040

Description:

A decline in the worlds population is expected by 2040.

The expected population decline does not necessarily mean a loss of energy consumption. This energy
consumption will depend on population distribution, distribution of economic activity and consumption
habits.

Project Structure:

1. - Trends in the development of global population distribution by 2040.

2. - Trends in the development of global consumption of electricity.

3. - Analysis of the energy mix in those areas that are projected to be more densely populated.


LINE 11. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IN SPAIN

Description:

The link between Spanish energy consumption and production will be assessed from an an extensive
database at Spains provincial level. The link between non-renewable energy consumption and economic
activity will also be assessed. This relationship also aims at analyzing the possible gains in terms of
energy efficiency. The study is conducted by estimates of a non-linear regression econometric type
from the database.
