    Energy Poverty in Developing Regions: Strategies, Indicators, Needs, and Technological Solutions
    (Springer, 2022-02-14) Ruiz-Rivas Hernando, Ulpiano; Tahri, Yousra; Arjona María, María del Mar; Chinchilla Sánchez, Mónica; Castaño de la Rosa, Raúl; Martínez Crespo, Jorge; European Commission
    This paper presents a critical review of the multidisciplinary work done on energy poverty in developing regions, a topic that presents remarkable differences with energy poverty in OECD countries. These efforts have resulted in the establishment of strategies to fight against energy poverty and to expand basic energy supplies (to leave no one behind, LNOB, one of the central statements on the Sustainable Development Agenda), in developing regions. Alongside they have produced the proposal of different indicators to characterize energy-poor households and their problems. These broad topics, currently in the spotlight, are linked with other long-term lines of research, such as the design and implementation of alternative technological solutions for sustainable and affordable energy supply or (as a part of the discussion on the concept of development) the conceptual identification of capabilities, needs, and rights that are energy-related. We discuss the different lines of work and the interactions of the different aspects.

    Disruptive Data-Related Technologies and Global Value Chain: Insights from SMEs in Emerging Markets
    (De Gruyter, 2023-07-11) Hernández Paz, Virginia; Revilla Torrejón, Antonio Javier; Rodríguez Márquez, Alicia; European Commission; Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (España)
    In this chapter, we address the question of how digital data technologiesmay help SME-EMs overcomesuch barriers and gain access to GVCs. More concretely, we advance previous studies connect-ing digital technologies with the likelihood to participate in GVCs in three ways. Firstly, we untangle the effects of different technologies dependingon their role in the process of managing data and information: data gathering and stor-age (smart devices and cloud computing), data analysis and sensemaking (big data andartificial intelligence), and data sharing and monitoring (blockchain). Secondly, we extendthe arguments and findings from previous research to the specific case of SME-EMs
