The research group on energy, economy and system dynamics is a research group at the University of Valladolid
The University of Valladolid counts on four campuses -Valladolid, Palencia, Segovia and Soria-, over 100 degrees, 80 doctoral programs and 68 postgraduate degrees, accredited international relations and prestigious research Centres. On average, nearly 25,000 students enrol each year, counts on more than 2,500 teachers and nearly 1,000 people dealing with administration tasks and other services. It offers a comprehensive range of double international degrees, and promotes the transfer of research results.
The Research Group on Energy, Economy and System Dynamics of the University of Valladolid (GEEDS-UVa) was created in 2008 as an interdisciplinary research team integrating researchers from different fields (engineering, economy, physics, etc.). Although the core of the research group is formed by members of the UVa, the group also includes members from other Spanish universities. The research group focuses on the required technical and socioeconomic transformations to achieve sustainability with an emphasis on the energetic and biophysical basis of the human systems.
The group has three main research lines:
- Application of System Dynamics to the modeling and simulation of sustainable energy-economy-environment systems
- Analysis of the biophysical potential and constraints of renewable energy sources
- Analysis of the relationship between human and environment systems from an Ecological Economics approach
