This January Oliver Canosa (UB), student of Environmental Sciences, has started a period of research internship at the ENT Foundation until mid-May. His tutor at the UB is Professor Jordi Roca and Jaume Freire will be his tutor at the ENT Foundation. His research work will focus on the project “Input-output analysis of energy in Catalonia”.
The project will develop an input-output analysis of energy for Catalonia based on the 2014 input-output tables prepared by Idescat and the satellite energy accounts that will be developed during the course of the project. Subsequently, the energy intensities, the drag coefficients and the key sectors in the use of energy in Catalonia will be calculated, in order to show the behavior of the Catalan economic structure in relation to the global use of energy in Catalonia.
