Les ménages et la consommation d’énergie. Commissariat général au développement durable, mars 2017, 120 p. http://www.statistiques.developpement-durable.gouv.fr/publications/p/2726/1041/menages-consommation-denergie.html

Que sait-on de la performance thermique des logements ? Comment la consommation d’énergie réelle se compare-t-elle avec celle mesurée par les diagnostics de performance énergétique ? Qui sont les ménages en précarité énergétique ? Habitent-ils plus souvent dans des espaces périurbains ? Telles sont quelques questions, auxquelles des analyses exploitant l’enquête Phébus sur les performances de l’habitat, équipements, besoins et usages et rassemblées ici visent à apporter des éléments de réponse.

Adversity and reform: Ukrainian gas market prospects / Simon Pirani. Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, March 2017, 12 p. (Energy insight ; 7) https://www.oxfordenergy.org/publications/adversity-reform-ukrainian-gas-market-prospects/

This Energy Insight looks at how far the Ukrainian gas market, one of Europe’s largest, has moved away from a model based on large-scale Russian imports and post-Soviet economic relationships, towards a new set of arrangements underpinned by closer integration with the European market. The transition is taking place against a volatile political and economic background of the military conflict in eastern Ukraine and the economic slump that has accompanied it. This article considers the progress of Ukraine’s efforts to minimise Russian gas imports, and to raise domestic gas production, and of Russia’s transit diversification policy. It surveys the changes in Ukraine’s domestic market.

United States’ Energy and Climate Policy under President Trump: Ramifications for Energy Markets and the GCC / Jim Krane and Elsie Hung. Emirates Diplomatic Academy, February 2017, 11 p. (EDA Insight policy brief) http://eda.ac.ae/media-events/news/item/410-eda-insight-analyses-us-energy-and-climate-policy-under-president-trump

US energy policy is evolving under Trump, and the changes will affect trade, foreign policy and relations with key global energy suppliers, including the GCC member countries. Shifting US policies are also likely to influence global climate action and geopolitics. Based on Trump’s pro-fossil fuel statements and cabinet appointments, and the administration’s noncommittal stance toward climate change, American individuals and firms may feel reduced government pressure to curtail carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption. US fossil fuel producers may operate under fewer regulatory constraints. This EDA Insight explores how US energy and climate policies could change under the Trump administration, and what implications these could have (i) in the US itself, (ii) for energy markets globally and (iii) for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states.
