Evaluación de la eficiencia productiva de los parques eólicos gallegos
The aim of this research is to evaluate the efficiency levels of Galician wind parks in the generation of electricity in the year 2004. Methodologically, the main instruments used are Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) techniques, as complements, parametric deterministic and stochastic techniques. The results show that there is a high average level of efficiency; in general some units however, do under perform in spite of the suitability of their operating conditions. This information should be useful for corporate promoters of wind parks, the regulator of the sector and society in general. El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el nivel de eficiencia en la generación de electricidad de los parques eólicos gallegos en el año 2004 mediante técnicas no paramétricas DEA como método principal, y de un modo complementario mediante técnicas paramétricas tanto determinísticas como estocásticas. Los resultados muestran que el nivel de eficiencia medio es bastante elevado aunque existen unidades que teniendo en cuenta las condiciones en que operan no alcanzan niveles adecuados de eficiencia. Esta información puede ser relevante para los promotores de los parques eólicos, el regulador del sector y la sociedad en general.
