A Representation of the World Population Dynamics for Integrated Assessments Models
N° 131 – November 2019
Victor Court, Florent McIsaac
Using the gross world product (GWP) as the only exogenous input variable, we design a model able to accurately reproduce the global population dynamics over the period 1950–2015. We then add to our model an excess mortality function associated with climate change.

Rate-of-return regulation to unlock natural gas pipeline deployment
N° 130 – September 2019
Florian Perrotton, Olivier Massol
Focusing on the situation in Mozambique, we examine whether the adoption of rate-of-return (RoR) regulation can reconcile the public authorities’ ambition for the construction of a large national pipeline system and the preference of foreign private investors for smaller infrastructure that are solely intended to supply a few creditworthy industrial sites.

The Nexus Between Climate Negotiations and Low-Carbon Innovation :A Geopolitics of Renewable Energy Patents
N° 124 – December 2018
Clément Bonnet, Samuel Carcanague, Gondia Seck, Emmanuel Hache, Marine Simoën
Intellectual property is a central issue in the climate negotiations. On the one hand, it shapes and encourages innovation in low‐carbon technologies. On the other hand, it reduces access to these technologies by giving patent holders market power. We analyze the interactions between climate negotiations and the acquisition of patents on renewable energy technologies.

Impact of variable renewable production on electricity prices in Germany: a Markov Switching model
N° 114 – May 2017
Cyril Martin de Lagarde, Frédéric Lantz
This paper aims at assessing the impact of renewable energy sources (RES) production on electricity spot prices. To do so, we use a two-regime Markov Switching (MS) model, that enables to disentangle the so-called “merit-order effect” due to wind and solar photovoltaic productions (used in relative share of the electricity demand), depending on the price being high or low.
