Europe’s electricity regime: restoration or thorough transition

Concerns about climate change, diminishing social acceptance of traditional fuels, and technological innovations have led several countries to pursue energy transition strategies, typically by massive diffusion of renewable electricity supplies. The German ‘Energiewende’ has been successful so far in terms of deploying renewable power, mainly by applying particular feed-in tariffs, and by bundling public, academic, industrial and political support. So far though, only few EU member states proceed with a similar transition. In March 2014 CEOs of Europe’s major energy companies publicly opposed a fast and thorough transformation of electricity supplies to become fully renewable. In April 2014 the European Commission published new state aid guidelines, generally mandating renewable energy support mechanisms (premiums, tenders) of lesser performance than regularly adjusted, specific feed-in tariffs. The new guidelines are likely to be pernicious for the fast deployment of renewable electricity supplies.

Tensions in Corporate Sustainability: Towards an Integrative Framework

Tensions in Corporate Sustainability: Towards an Integrative Framework | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it

his paper proposes a systematic framework for the analysis of tensions in corporate sustainability. The framework is based on the emerging integrative view on corporate sustainability, which stresses the need for a simultaneous integration of economic, environmental and social dimensions without, a priori, emphasising one over any other.

Un tout petit effet rebond pour l’éclairage basse consommation

Un tout petit effet rebond pour l’éclairage basse consommation | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it
Ce qui se gagne d'un côté se perd souvent de l'autre. C'est le principe de « l'effet rebond », qui voit par exemple l'acquéreur d'une voiture peu gourmande en carburant appuyer sur le champignon et rouler davantage. Si l'économie devrait être de 100 à comportement constant et que l'économie effective est de 40, l'effet rebond est de 60 %.

Sciences sociales et transitions énergétiques

Le défi de structuration d’une communauté de sciences humaines et sociales sur l’énergie en France est bien réel et appelle un agenda de recherche pluridisciplinaire : économie, histoire, philosophie, géographie, sociologie, sciences politiques et de gestion, psychologie sociale, urbanisme, architecture…. Porté par les laboratoires PACTE et CIRED, ce colloque a pour objectif de rassembler et de confronter les approches sur quatre fronts d’avancement des analyses de la transition énergétique :

. Des futurs énergétiques en construction

. Demande, demandes?

. Marchés, nouveaux portages et nouveaux partages

. Territoires en transition

Determinants of quadic patenting: Market access, imitative threat, competition and strength of intellectual property rights

We analyze firms' decision to patent in global markets.

We introduce the notion of a quadic patent.

Quadic patenting in China is the most dominant among that in all countries.

Accessing markets is a key driver of quadic patenting.

Quadic patenting is also shaped by imitative threat and product market competions

Costs of meeting international climate targets without nuclear power

Costs of meeting international climate targets without nuclear power | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it

New calculations show that the impact of a global phase-out of nuclear energy on global mitigation costs is quite modest, but that there are substantial differences for countries. Total compliance costs increase the most for Japan and the US, but these are rather marginal if measured in terms of GDP. China, India, and Russia benefit from a nuclear phase-out because their additional revenues from selling certificates outweigh the additional costs of losing nuclear power as a mitigation option.

The role of short-termism and uncertainty in organizational inaction on climate change: multilevel framework

Despite increasing pressure to deal with climate change, firms have been slow to respond with effective action. This paper derives a multi-level framework for a better understanding of why many firms are failing to reduce their absolute greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

Energy coordination in eco-districts: The multi-disciplinary NEXUS project

Funded by ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) the NEXUS project aims at identifying innovations in energy storage and management (especially of intermittent renewables) at the level of eco-districts or city blocks. The multidisciplinary analysis involves technological, sociological, economic, city planning and political dimensions 1. The research analyses socio-energy nodes (SEN) at district or block level. SENs are seen as the place of the coordination among district stakeholders, from real estate, energy and city planning actors to constructors or investors. Deploying appropriate technical systems, SENs are supposed to be more or less replicable from a territory to another. The project studies the arrangement and deployment conditions of SENs at district level and describes them through a portfolio of contrasted scenarios (including smart grids) in view of a 2040 goal of dividing greenhouse gases by 4. These scenarios will propose visions of districts or blocks able to smoothen energy intermittencies, using assumptions about economic constraints, technological capacities, regulatory context and political decisions at local and national scales.

Barriers to electricity load shift in companies: A survey-based exploration of the end-user perspective

Barriers to electricity load shift in companies: A survey-based exploration of the end-user perspective | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it

As countries move toward larger shares of renewable electricity, the slow diffusion of active electricity load management should concern energy policy makers and users alike. Active load management can increase capacity factors and thereby reduce the need for new capacity, improve reliability, and lower electricity prices.

Household Transitions to Energy Efficient Lighting | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it

New energy efficient lighting technologies can significantly reduce household electricity consumption, but adoption has been slow. A unique dataset of German households is used in this paper to examine the factors associated with the replacement of old incandescent lamps (ILs) with new energy efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs).

A brighter future? Quantifying the rebound effect in energy efficient lighting

A brighter future? Quantifying the rebound effect in energy efficient lighting | Energy Management and Strategy | Scoop.it

A rebound of 6% is estimated for the average switch to an energy efficient bulb. A rebound of ca. 3% is estimated for the main bulb in the living or dining room. Higher luminosity makes up 60% (40%) of the rebound for the average (modal) bulb.

The magnitude of the rebound differs by initial bulb and replacement bulb type. A third of the switches to energy efficient bulbs entail negative rebound effects.

Private environmental governance through cross-sector partnerships: Tensions between competition and effectiveness

We analyze the suitability of cross-sector partnerships as an effective mechanism for private environmental governance. By focusing on the interaction between firms within cross-sector partnerships, we analyze how competition between firms affects partnership effectiveness. Marrying insights from the private governance literature with institutional theory and the resource-based view, we identify under which conditions firm-level competition for legitimacy and capabilities, respectively, undermines or enhances effectiveness of cross-sector partnerships to address environmental issues. In doing so, our argument develops the various factors that moderate the relationship between competition and effectiveness for different types of partnerships
