Friday Lunch Meeting, Stéphane Gloriant, 11th of january 2019

11 January 2019 @ 11 h 30 min - 13 h 00 min

Stéphane Gloriant (Researcher “Macroeconomic modeling of green growth” at the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition)will lecture about “A quantified assessment of the French carbon tax”.

Called the “climate-energy contribution”, the carbon tax was introduced in France in 2014 to price energy-related CO2 emissions not covered by the European emissions trading system. Its acceleration should accelerate, at least as far as the rate is concerned, calling for a first assessment of its actual effects. This is what this Information & Debates proposes, concentrating the evaluation on the sectors most concerned. Evaluating the impact of the tax is not just about comparing emissions before and after coming into force. This requires comparing the emissions observed over the period with the evolution of a “counterfactual” scenario representing the hypothetical trajectory that emissions would have followed in its absence.
