The French National Debate on the Ecological Transition has revealed various major issues related to the implementation of the energy transition, among which the questions of identifying relevant transition pathways. The work undertaken by the Experts Committee has established several transition paths, depending on : (i) the evolution of energy demand level, (ii) the penetration of new uses (behaviors and technologies), (iii) the nature of the proposed energy mix and the speed of implementation these changes by 2050.
The purpose of this Chair is to lead collaborative academic research in order to bring powerful insights on innovative funding schemes dedicated to the energy transition (financial engineering and regulatory issues) as well as to provide relevant tools to assess associated performances (macro-economic models for instance).
Realised with Jean-Pierre Ponssard, this "Cahier de l'ILB" is dedicated to sustainable mobility. It deals with various subjects : how driving restrictions affect urban pollution, carbon footprint of motor vehicles in the United States, hydrogen vehicles, the importance of strong regulation to reap the full benefits of innovation in mobility.

In the social norms literature concerned with the private provision of public goods there seems to be an implicit belief that it is best to have all agents adhere to the ‘good’ social norm. We challenge this view and study...
This study uses the global climate–economy–biosphere (CoCEB) model formulated in Part 1 to investigate economic aspects of deforestation control and carbon sequestration in forests, as well as the efficiency of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies as policy measures for climate change mitigation.
The Chair Energy and Prosperity will welcome Roger Guesnerie in it's seminar on Septembre 29th. His speach will be on the following subject : "Calcul économique : à propos de quelques débats concernant le risque et le développement durable"
