Collaboration with ADEME: carbon value and carbon tax in the context of renewable energies deployment

Participants : Odile Pourtallier, Mireille Bossy.

Started in January 2009 and finished in October 2012, this collaboration financed by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), involves the Centre for Applied Mathematics (CMA), at Mines ParisTech, Coprin and Tosca teams at Inria. It focuses on a short term carbon value derived from the so-called financial carbon market, the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS), which is a framework for GHG emissions reduction in European industry.

The objective of this project is to study the compatibility and complementarity of a carbon tax and a target for renewable energy deployment [32] , see also Inria -TOSCA Team report.
