    We evaluate the impact of climate change and global change in terms of environment, economy and society, and we undertake strategies of adaptation.

    We define the demand for hydrological resources from the different drainage basins in Andorra, focusing on studies on future scenarios and the analysis of water management policies.

    We carry out studies aimed at providing support to energy planning on both a municipal and national scale through energy systems modeling, to promote savings, efficiency and the introduction of renewable energies.
