Econometrics — a Keynesian perspective / Lars Syll, Real-world economics review blog, 30/05/2016

Mainstream economists today usually subscribe to the idea that although mathematical-statistical models are not ‘always the right guide for policy,’ they are  still somehow necessary for making policy recommendations. The models are supposed to supply us with a necessary ‘discipline of thinking.’.. lire

Oil: Not Yesterday’s Fuel, Just Yet, The Energy Collective, 27/05/2016

The new hype is to say that the end of the oil age is near. In the long run, the importance of oil will diminish, write Peter Simon Vargha, Chief Economist at  Hungarian oil and gas company MOL and his colleague Csaba Pogonyi, but before that some good years for oil are likely. Just as high prices reduced the likely future demand for oil, low prices will probably prolong its use… lire

European Researchers: Include Consumers in the EU Emission Trading Scheme, The Energy Collective, 30/05/2016

The EU Emission Trading Scheme should not only be applied to industrial producers of CO2, but also to their consumers, proposes Karsten Neuhoff, Head of the Climate Policy Department at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). This would provide sufficient incentives to all market players to reduce their emissions and would do a lot to clarify the structure of free allowance allocation, providing long-term certainty for investments and innovation. New research findings from 17 international institutions, jointly led by Climate Strategies and DIW Berlin, show the viability of this approach… lire

Addressing Energy Technologies and Policies that Shape Future Sustainability / Stefanie Koperniak, Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, The Energy Collective, 30/05/2016

A quickly growing global population presents a variety of challenges, and raises the critical question: How can we sustainably meet energy needs while considering — and preventing — environmental and human impacts? An ever-increasing demand for energy requires the development and maintenance of an underlying infrastructure providing important services and utilities, such as power and communications… lire

The Limits of Oil’s Rebound / Anatole Kaletsky, Chief Economist and Co-Chairman of Gavekal Dragonomics, Project syndicate, 30/05/2016

For the first time since last October, the price of a barrel of oil has broken through $50. So it seems a good time to update the analysis I presented in January 2015… lire

Changement climatique : où en sont les promesses des entreprises ? / Delphine Gibassier, Toulouse Business School, The Conversation, 30/05/2016

Depuis une quinzaine d’années, nombre d’entreprises – répondant aux incitations du GHG Protocol, du CDP et d’autres classements – se sont engagées à mettre en place une comptabilité carbone et à se fixer des objectifs de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) liées à leurs activités… lire

What Africa must do to make green industrialisation a reality / dam Abdou Hassan, Enseignant chercheur, Université de Rouen, The Conversation, 30/05/2016

The latest report from the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa features an in-depth examination of green industrialisation opportunities across the continent. The challenge lies in transforming production methods and creating infrastructure to secure food, water and energy supplies… lire

Customer Power: Are You the Kind of Energy User Who Makes a Difference? / Sussex Energy Group, The Energy Collective, 26/05/2016

In the story of how energy is made and used to keep a country functioning, you don’t get a starring role. You are the passive receiver and consumer of electricity or gas in a tale dominated by governments, corporations and the media. We put the kettle on, we set the thermostat but we don’t take any heat for shaping or challenging the status quo… lire

Nature’s Answer to Climate Risk / Maria Damanaki, Global Managing Director for Oceans at The Nature Conservancy, Project syndicate, 26/05/2016

Nearly half the world’s population – some 3.5 billion people – lives near coasts. As climate change exacerbates the effects of storms, flooding, and erosion, the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of those people will be at risk. In fact, the latest edition of the World Economic Forum’s World Risk Assessment Report names failure to adapt to the effects of climate change as the single greatest risk, in terms of impact, to societies and economies around the world… lire

Biogaz : l’énergie vivante des champs et des alpages, l’Observatoire Energies d’Entreprises, 30/05/2016
