We address the long-standing challenge of adding optimal exploration to the classic Hotelling model of a non-renewable resource. We prove that a frontier of critical levels of proven reserves exists, above which exploration ceases, and below which it proceeds at infinite speed.
This article identifies supply and demand shocks in the oil and gas market using monthly data (from January 2008 to December 2021) and explores their impact on clean energy stock returns in Europe. Our results show that a negative gas supply shock positively affects clean energy stocks, while a negative shock in global oil supply does not have a significant effect on clean energy stocks throughout the period studied.
In this study, we analyse how access to electricity affects children’s well-being in Rwanda through the allocation of their time in the different activities of domestic production and their leisure time.
Experimental economics offers the possibility to study the behavior of economic agents in ideal conditions, as it allows for the complete control of the environment of participants. This thesis presents results from several field experiments, as well as their contributions to the literature.
In this paper, we show that the adoption by the regulator of measures such as the automatic tariff adjustment mechanism or cost reflectivity allows the mitigation of currency and inflation risks on the evolution of installed capacity in the 54 African countries over the period 1990-2019.
This paper studies energy demand determinants and energy poverty in Morocco and assess to which extent the adoption of PV panels could help achieve a just energy transition.
The objective of this paper is to analyze the link between electrification and deforestation in Cote d'Ivoire. Our results show a positive link. Indeed, deforestation continues to gain ground in the country alongside the vast national electrification access programs ongoing since 2011.
In its 2021 strategy review, the European Central Bank's Governing Council unanimously decided to make climate change one of its priorities for the coming years. In this article, we try to understand how this change was achieved.
Several researchers argue that the root cause of today’s ecological disaster is not the anthropos, but the way we have been organizing the global economy through capitalism. It follows that we would be living in the Capitalocene rather than the Anthropocene. In this article, we demonstrate that the Capitalocene concept suffers from four intrinsic flaws
This paper analyzes the optimal reward scheme in an organization involving agents with social preferences whose tasks are complementary.
This article identifies supply and demand shocks in the oil and gas market using monthly data (from January 2008 to December 2021) and explores their impact on clean energy stock returns in Europe.
