Title

What is the impact of energy renovation of housing on energy consumption? Ex post evaluation on panel data

 

Abstract
 
This article provides an ex post evaluation of the impact of energy renovation works in the residential sector on energy expenditure using data from the Energy Management survey carried out by TNS-SOFRES for the ADEME in 2000 to 2013. The model with fixed effects and instrumental variables identifies a very modest effect of the work since an additional € 1,000 spent leads to an average reduction in the annual energy bill of € 8.29 (or – 0.64%). Consequently, the discounted net profit from the renovation of an average dwelling is very negative. These results question the relevance of subsidies and public aid for renovation if they are motivated solely by energy savings.

Titre 

Energy transition in metropolitan areas, rural areas and the desert

Authors : Louis Boisgibault & Fahad Al Kabbani

 

Abstract
 
Metropolis, rurality, desert: three types of space that require a differentiated approach for the energy transition. This book presents detailed field studies in Riyadh, Lille, Fayence, Bokhol, Ouarzazate and in the Arabian desert. It also analyzes local actions and good practices according to resources and constraints to remove the brakes on the energy transition. Solutions are sought by type of space for buildings, transportation, industry and services. Targets are set for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, as part of the commitments of the Paris climate agreement. Educational, Energy transition in metropolises, rural areas and the desert is aimed at elected politicians, professionals and any public wishing to learn about changes in energy production and consumption patterns.

May 8th WEBINAR : Green Recovery Post-Covid-19 : European or National Strategies?

08 May 2020

May 8th, Friday from 3pm to 4pm France (starting 9 AM Eastern Time) Webinar:

Green Recovery Post-Covid-19 : European or National Strategies?

with Anna Creti, Patrice Geoffron, Lara Lázaro Touza and Thomas Pellerin-Carlin

On April 10th, 17 European climate and environment ministers signed an open letter to the European Commission to use the European Green Deal as a framework to shape the EU’s upcoming recovery plan. The need to scale up investments, notably in the fields of sustainable mobility, renewable energy, building renovations, research and innovation, the recovery of biodiversity and the circular economy are the pillar of European resilience. A group of 180 political decision-makers, business leaders, trade unions, campaign groups and think tanks have also urged the bloc to adopt green stimulus measures. Is there a common European strategy or national policies to shape the recovery? The EU is headed for a steep recession triggered by the outbreak, but is divided on how to finance green measures. Proposals have been put forth by several European Member States.

The webinar discusses the different perspectives being actually debated.

Title 

Internal Migration and Energy Poverty in South Africa

Authors: Johanna Choumert-Nkolo and Leonard Le Roux (University of Cape Town)

 

Abstract
 
Despite recent progress, energy poverty remains pervasive is Sub-Saharan Africa. Rapid urbanization adds on a significant challenge to often under-capacitated local authorities that struggle to provide services to new urban dwellers. In the case of South Africa and other SSA countries, this has resulted in a proliferation of under-serviced informal urban settlements on the urban periphery, where a lack of energy access is compounded with a lack of access to other services and job-opportunities to result in sites of concentrated and multidimensional deprivation. As such, it is not immediately clear that rural-urban migration results in reductions in energy poverty for migrants. In this paper, we present the first analysis of the relationship between rural-urban migration and energy poverty in South Africa, and to our knowledge in Africa, using a nationally representative panel dataset. Using a difference in differences approach, we are able to follow the energy access of both migrants and non-migrants over a 10-year period. We find that rural-urban migration results in almost immediate reductions in energy poverty for migrants themselves, with especially dramatic reductions in the use of traditional cooking fuels. However, the additional gains that result from migration to informal urban settlements are modest, given the pace of change that is also taking place in rural areas in South Africa, especially in the case of grid access and access to electrical appliances.

Title 

Incentives to (not) disclose energy performance information in the housing market

Authors: Elisabetta Cornago and Luisa Dressler

While Elisabetta currently works at the OECD, this paper was developed with Luisa Dressler while at Université Libre de Bruxelles. The paper is unrelated to OECD work and does not present OECD positions on the topic.

Brief abstract
 
Disclosure of energy performance certificates (EPCs) is often incomplete, which hampers their effectiveness in relieving information asymmetries between landlords and tenants in the housing market. Even when a certificate is available, landlords do not always disclose it. This contradicts the unraveling result, according to which all landlords should disclose quality information unless it is costly to do so. We leverage a cross-sectional dataset of residential rental advertisements from the Belgian region of Brussels to empirically evaluate incentives to disclose an EPC. We find that two fundamental assumptions for the unraveling result are not confirmed in our setting: tenants value energy performance of rental property only when dwellings are of very high quality and do not appear to rationally adjust their expectations when faced with dwellings that withhold their EPC. The paper formulates specific policy advice for reforming EPC mechanisms to increase disclosure rates.

Abstract
 
I demonstrate how sustainable investing through exclusionary screening and environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration affects asset returns. I develop an asset pricing model with partial segmentation and disagreement among investors. I characterize two exclusion premia generalizing Merton’s (1987) premium on neglected stocks and a taste premium that disentangles the link between ESG and financial performance. By constructing an instrument that captures sustainable investors’ tastes for green firms, I estimate this model applied to green investing and sin stock exclusion using U.S. data between 2000 and 2018. The model outperforms the four-factor model, and yields a taste and an exclusion effect of 1.5% and 2.5% per year, respectively.

Title

Book: Two Degrees – Societies Facing Climate Change
 

Discussants

Jean Baptiste Fressoz researcher at the CNRS at the Alexandre Koyré Center of the EHESS, author of “The Anthropocene Event: The Earth, History and Us”. Threshold, 2013.

Amy Dahan, CNRS research director, author of “Governing Climate, What Future Possible ?: Twenty Years of Negotiations.” Press Po Science, 2015.

Abstract
 
Two degrees, it seems little, but it’s huge. Earth’s temperature has already increased by one degree since pre-industrial times. Carbon emissions related to human activities are primarily responsible. Climatic upheavals are underway and their impacts will only get worse. It is almost certain that we will not hold the goal, solemnly endorsed by the world’s governments, of keeping global warming below 2 ° C. The reason for this incapacity lies in the triple dependence of our societies (technical, economic, cultural) on fossil energies, which constitute a base as diffuse as powerful. Science tells us that at this rate the worst is to be feared. But that does not induce an individual leak. We must, on the contrary, face collectively. Noting the current impossibility of radically changing our way of life and organization, this book nevertheless commits us to follow several realistic paths of adaptation and reform to prepare a less dark future.
