Reduction of GHG emissions
Our line of research focuses on the evaluation the environmental performance of firms and economies by analysing the fluctuations of CO2 emissions and their links with economic activity. The methodological framework is based on a dynamic factor analysis to elaborate indicators of the environmental performance. We develop a CO2 emissions-GDP linkage matrix to attain useful information on the firms and economies.
The impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) and information systems(IS) in energy derived efficiencies at different industries.
The management of efficient energy systems at organization can impact in final results. Deficiencies in the way firms manage information resources oriented to produce energy efficiencies can imply a lack of organizational image and economic losses. Processes can be controlled by properly using information and communication technologies (ICT) and open data repositories (ODR). This research is oriented to develop applications that allow the control of energy consumption in key processes at different industries. These applications allow establishing preventive and protective measures to reach energy efficiencies. For the development of these applications, different concepts such as cloud computing, Internet of things (IoT), Near Field Communication technology (NFC) will be applied.
