35 p, 1.4 MB Power capacity: A key element in sustainability assessment / Diaz-Maurin, François ; Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
In the field of complex energetics, human societies to survive follow the same ‘maximum power principle’ as other living systems. In this view, human societies developed because they have been able to increase ‘their capacity to convert energy at a given time rate’ rather than simply increase ‘their level of energy consumption’. [...]

18 p, 609.3 KB Consumer valuation of energy-saving features of residential air conditioners with hedonic and choice models / Matsumoto, Shigeru ; Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
The promotion of energy-efficient appliances is necessary to reduce the energetic and environmental burden of the household sector. However, many studies have reported that a typical consumer underestimates the benefits of energy-saving investment on the purchase of household electric appliances. [...]

49 p, 1.1 MB Re-opening the black box in societal metabolism : the application of MuSIASEM to water / Madrid, Cristina ; Cabello, Violeta ; Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
In this paper we address the complexity of the analysis of water use in relation to the issue of sustainability. In fact, the flows of water in our planet represent a complex reality which can be studied using many different perceptions and narratives referring to different scales and dimensions of analysis. [...]

30 p, 1.3 MB The global uranium rush and its Africa frontier : lessons from Namibia / Conde Puigmal, Marta (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Kallis, Giorgos (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
Uranium mines are the - often forgotten - source of nuclear power. The promotion of nuclear energy as a clean alternative and the projected increase of electricity demand in countries such as China and India, have led to a global “uranium rush”, unseen since the peak of the Cold War. [...]
