On the 21st and 22nd of June, the 8th Atlantic Workshop on Energy and Environmental Economics(AWEEE) took place on the island of A Toxa, in the Northwestern Spanish area of Galicia. It is a biennial scientific meeting born in 2004, organized by Economics for Energy with the collaboration of CEPE (ETH Zurich) and the University of Münster (CAWM) and the support of ECOBAS. The workshop has become an important outlet for the discussion and debate on state-of-the-art research on energy and environmental issues, with a limited number of participants who come from all around the world. The AWEEE combines keynote lectures on specific topics by prestigious academics with the presentation of research by invited speakers and by other participants, including a poster session, through an open call for papers.
