Short biography:
Currently working on sustainability assessment of management strategies of the forest sector in the context of the bio-economy, developing and implementing the Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment Tool. Yaneth Palacios have been research in Life Cycle Assessment of Renewable Energy Systems to transform the University lecture hall in Valladolid (Spain) into a Zero Energy Buildings nZEB, assessing the energy performance of the systems currently in use, to analyze the energy efficiency of the proposed renewable systems and to evaluate the comparative environmental impacts of the various systems. Yaneth Palacios worked for more than 10 years as a teacher in engineering programs in Spain, Venezuela and Colombia.
