El Pais (edición País Vasco): Las olas de calor aumentarán la mortalidad en Euskadi

Un estudio financiado por el Gobierno vasco que pone cifras concretas a lo que podría ocurrir en Euskadi en una proyección de cara a los próximos 80 años. Si no se adoptan medidas correctoras, a partir de 2020 las olas de calor podrían incrementar la mortalidad hasta un 58%, en el escenario más desfavorable.El estudio presentado en el foro Klimatek, en Bilbao, está firmado por el centro vasco de investigación de cambio climático BC3, y cuenta con el respaldo del Departamento de Medio Ambiente del ejecutivo de Lakua.

BC3 Journal Article “Assessing vulnerabilities and limits in the transition to renewable energies: land requirements under 100% solar energy scenarios”

The transition to renewable energies will intensify the global competition for land. Nevertheless, most analyses to date have concluded that land will not pose significant constraints on this transition. Here, we estimate the land-use requirements to supply all currently consumed electricity and final energy with domestic solar energy for 40 countries.

BC3 Journal Article “The importance of regret minimization in the choice for renewable energy programmes: Evidence from a discrete choice experiment”

This study provides a methodologically rigorous attempt to disentangle the impact of various factors – unobserved heterogeneity, information and environmental attitudes – on the inclination of individuals to exhibit either a utility maximization or a regret minimization behaviour in a discrete choice experiment for renewable energy programmes described by four attributes: greenhouse gas emissions, power outages, employment in the energy sector, and electricity bill.
