Deepening the territorial Life Cycle Assessment approach with partial equilibrium modelling: First insights from an application to a wood energy incentive in a French region

2021
Auteurs :
T. Beaussier, S. Caurla, V. Bellon-Maurel, P. Delacote, E. Loiseau

An innovative modelling framework and metrics are developed to assess the economic and environmental performances of regional incentives in the wood energy sector. Our approach is based on the coupling between a partial equilibrium economic model of the forest sector with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Its originality relies on the computation of regional eco-efficiency...

Expenditure elasticity and income elasticity of GHG emissions: A survey of literature on household carbon footprint

2021
Auteurs :
Antonin Pottier

The article examines the relationship between a household's income and its carbon emissions (the carbon footprint). It is found that, generally, the carbon footprint grows less rapidly than expenditure, and confirms that the income elasticity is lower than the expenditure elasticity

Exploring nonlinearity on the CO emissions, economic production and energy use nexus: A causal discovery approach

2021
Auteurs :
Peter Martey-Addo, Christelle Manibialoa, and Florent Mc Isaac

We examine the interactions between growth in CO2 emissions, economic production, and energy use at the global and multi-regional levels over the period 1990–2014. Among our findings, our results suggest that policy effectiveness could be gained if a country’s climate actions were coordinated with the other geographies most affected by their consequences, providing valuable...

Testing Goodwin with a stochastic differential approach—The United States (1948–2019)

2021
Auteurs :
Florent Mc Isaac

This paper follows Harvie and Grasselli and Maheshwari's research program in testing both Goodwin's predator–prey model and the extension proposed by van der Ploeg. The aim of this paper is to provide a guideline for the bloc estimation and the backtesting strategy that can be applied to such a class of continuous-time non-linear macroeconomic...
