Iñigo Capellan Perez. Valladolid, 1986. Industrial Engineer from the University of Valladolid and ENSAM Arts et Métiers Paris-Tech. Holds a MSc. in “Electrical Energy and Sustainable Development” (ENSAM Lille, 2008) and a PhD in Economics with the dissertation “Development and Application of Environmental Assessment Modelling Towards Sustainability” (University of the Basque Country, 2016). His research interest focus on the analysis and modeling of the energy-economy-environment systems, the transition to renewable energies in the context of the depletion of fossil fuels and climate mitigation and the technical and social transformations towards sustainability. He has contributed to several books and has published in international journals such as Energy & Environmental Science, Energy, Energy for Sustainable Development and Sustainability Science.
