Le prochain séminaire de recherche la Chaire Énergie et Prospérité aura lieu Vendredi 09 février 2018 à l’Agence Française de Développement. Nous recevrons Paul Brockway (University of Leeds, UK) pour un exposé intitulé:
Access to cheap and widely available fossil fuels powered global economic growth for over 250 years. However, the last decade has seen a slowdown in the global economy – and people (governments, economists) are looking for answers. Labour productivity is seen as a prime candidate. But are we looking in the wrong place? This seminar presents recent research suggesting energetic constraints could be being reached. First, is a reduction in available or ‘net’ energy, – since extracting fossil fuels in harder-to-reach places requires more energy. Second, historical gains in energy efficiency – which have been a key engine of economic growth – are slowing down due to thermodynamic limits.
Date : 09 février 2018 de 15h à 17h
Lieu : AFD – 5 Rue Roland Barthes, 75012 Paris – Salle E05-100.

The cattle sector, both emissions- and land-intensive, represents a great opportunity for mitigation through reforestation. In this paper, we study the efficiency of land-use regulation. Our analytical results indicate that the subsidy is the best alternative policy to emissions tax, provided that the elasticities of land use and emissions to cattle feeding are close. Interestingly,...
The workshop aims to identify the key uncertainties and debates regarding the role of bioenergy in a climate neutral economy, at national and global scales, and the challenges for the design of climate policies. Speakers and precise time will be confirmed soon.
