BERENGUER UNGARO, Mónica Rosario et al. Leading Role of Political Economy in Appraising the Energy Management. Econ. y Desarrollo [online]. 2019, vol.162, n.2, e15.  Epub Aug 13, 2019. ISSN ISSN.

The international community is getting more and more involved in the energy management not only due to the depletion of energy resources, but also due to pollution. There are various solutions to these problems, with political economy being one of them. This is why this work was aimed at showing that political economy plays a leading role in appraising the energy management. The results showed that political economy serves cognitive, methodological, ideological, and practical purposes which have different, but closely related concepts. It was demonstrated that possible solutions suggested by governments could have social cost. However, the Cuban government’s solution is to guarantee that the whole Cuban population has permanent access to the energy they need, and at the same time to limit the effects that energy consumption has on the environment.

Keywords : Energy efficiency; energy resources; energy.
