The Dialogs on Energy and Sustainability evolves from the Working Group on Sustainable Energy Policies. It aims at increasing its operational capability concerning the decision making, its spreading, and the specification on the considered subjects. The DES is coordinated by Pedro Linares and Gonzalo Sáenz de Miera. It is made up of a stable number of specialists on different aspects related to energy and sustainable development. The DES meets every two months to discuss about an already defined subject, according to a preestablished annual programme. The programme is designed in accordance to the most important and current issues every year. The DES's goal is to study options in depth and contribute to the formulation of necessary policies in order to obtain a sustainable energetic model in Spain.
Given that the DES's primary objective is to contribute to the debate about the definition of sustainable energy policies, its main product is a set of documents, open to general public, which clearly expresses the different attitudes for the subjects discussed. Points of consensus are specially emphasized.
For this purpose, a document, with a maximum length of 5 pages, is prepared to be spread in different institutions or companies, and a 2 page document is published in "Energías Renovables" magazine.
The Chair supports the DES's activities, increasing its capabilities. All the documents issued by the DES, as well as any other related material, will be available on the BP Chair's website and the following blog.
