The European Union is the third leading country in greenhouse gas emissions and its energy dependence exceeds 50% because it does not have the materials to carry out the Green Transition. This was stated by Fernando Llano Paz, professor at the Universidade da Coruña, in an interview on RTVE. Llano explained that Europe's energy independence is based on the production of sustainable electricity with [...]
Climate change is a growing threat worldwide. Under this premise, the European Green Pact has been created in Europe with the aim of modernising the territory's economy and improving the management of resources, without being less competitive. To achieve this, goals have been set to which all member countries must contribute: to stop producing net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, to decouple economic growth [...]
The European Parliament approves legislation to accelerate the EU's climate transition and reduce dependence on fossil fuels from Russia. The initiative has more than 20 billion euros in the form of subsidies to boost member states' energy recovery and transition plans. The funds will be distributed according to criteria such as cohesion policy, dependence on fossil fuels and the cost of investments. In fact, [...]

In the current context, Europe not only demands green energies, but also less dependence on other countries. That is why two technologies, green hydrogen and biomass, are emerging as protagonists in this paradigm shift, accompanied by solar and wind energy. Bio-Flex-Gen is a European project related to a heat and electricity co-production plant. It seeks to meet two requirements: on the one hand, to [...]
Spain ranks seventh in the European energy sector. This is according to the consultancy firm Oliver Wyman with its new Green Transition Index, a system with which they have measured the evolution in terms of energy transition of 29 territories in our continent. In each case, the use of transition technologies in each country, the respect of transport for the environment, the sustainability of buildings [...]
