Electronic structure calculations within Hedin’s GW approximation are becoming increasingly accessible to the community. In particular, as it has been shown earlier and we confirm by calculations using our MBPT_LCAO package , the computational cost of the so-called G0W0 can be made comparable to the cost of a regular Hartree-Fock calculation. In this work, we study the performance of our new G0W0 implementation based on a contour deformation technique to reproduce the ionization potentials of all 117 closed-shell molecules belonging to the G2/97 test set, using a pseudo-potential starting point provided by the popular density-functional package SIESTA . Moreover, the ionization potentials and electron affinities of a set of 24 acceptor molecules  are compared to experiment and to reference all-electron calculations.
