Energy Transitions

This research program aims at analyzing the provisions and potential impacts of climate-energy policies in three main research topics: integration of renewables in electricity and gas sectors; pricing mechanisms, consumer behaviors and new energy uses; spatial equity and redistribution.

 Our research topics

  • Renewables and self-consumption
  • Decentralised production and networks functionning
  • Local impacts of the energy transition
  • Thermal renovation and real-estate assets value
  • Analysis of energy consumptions in the tertiary sector
  • Introduction of “performance guarantee” mechanisms
