Vicente became an engineer in 1993 (University of Zaragoza, Spain), and then was researching CO2 balances and energy & economic balances in life cycle analysis within the R&D center CIRCE. He started as project manager in the Canary Islands Institute of Technology in 1997, where he was involved in off-grid autonomous-renewable-energy-driven desalination projects (electric and thermal processes) and other sustainability activities until 2014, when he retired after a larynx cancer. Four years later, he completed his PhD on technical & economic optimization of solar & wind powered reverse osmosis systems. He has more than 20 publications. Vicente has been active since 2014 by attending courses in photography, graphic design and coaching. He balances his activities with hiking, meditation, cooking, dancing, and family life (3 kids). He is also an active member in a gender equality men’s association, and hosts conferences to share his experience and life learning during and after his cancer. As a One Community volunteer, Vicente is leading the solar design and research team.
