The Contribution Of Renewable Energy To Wellness. Not Yet A Lesson Learned


  • Regueiro Ferreira, Rosa María


In the last twenty years, renewable energy a greater role in the global energy outlook, due to the increasing demand for available energy, particularly electric, the search for greater energy diversification, the assumption of policies to reduce emissions greenhouse gases because they're combining their use allows objectives to obtain high production yields. Within the renewable energy mix emphasized the role of wind energy as a source of electricity. Despite the defense of the benefits of renewable energy from various fields to ensure the welfare of the citizenry in times of profound economic and energy as the current instabilities, global acceptance seems too slow.In this paper, we present a theoretical discussion with the approach of institutional economics, the bio-economy and energy economy, on the key elements of the strength of the renewable energies to achieve welfare, showing some of the main barriers to their final acceptance.
