    Abstract

    Durante los últimos años la política energética española ha estado muy sesgada hacia la sustitución de fuentes energéticas tradicionales, muy contaminantes, por otras renovables, sin índice de carbonización. La gran cantidad de recursos públicos que se han destinado a financiar la producción de estas energías contrasta con la creciente escasez general de recursos y con la reducida aportación pública a la I+D+i en el sector energético español. Utilizando el modelo de Curva de Kuznets Ambiental, hemos obtenido evidencia sobre la existencia de una relación inversa entre el gasto público en políticas de I+D+i energéticas y las emisiones de gases contaminantes. During the last years the Spanish energy policy has been heavily biased towards replacing traditional energy sources, highly polluting, other renewable, without charring rate. The large amount of public resources being allocated to finance the production of these energy contrasts with the growing general shortage of resources and reduced public input to R&D in the Spanish energy sector. Using, for empirical analysis, the model of Environmental Kuznets Curve, we obtained evidence for existence of an inverse relationship between public spending policies R&D energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
