This Course Unit covers the theory and some empirical aspects of the energy economy.
It deals with questions concerning the thinking and economic decision in the field of energy.

This Course Unit aims then to enable students of the SEM Department :

  • Understand the importance of economic thinking in the decision-making of major energy projects
  • To be able to use economic concepts in a particular global issue
  • Acquire some economic modeling methods for a given problem
  • Develop a common language and an aptitude for multidisciplinary
  • Develop critical thinking in relation to the literature


Course of Energy Economics (Ghislaine Destais)
This course introduces the economic issues related to energy without neglecting their roots in the physical dimension of energy. It presents vocabulary, basic tools and the basic culture of energy economist in addressing both the macro and micro-economic aspects.

Energy and environmental issues (Patrick Criqui)
The objective of the course is to give a general understanding of the evolution of the energy system and its role in the development, operation and influence of resource constraints and environment on its future development. It also aims to provide all the elements of economic analysis needed to understand the role of economic instruments in the development of policies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gas emissions, both nationally and internationally.

Workshops in Energy Economics (Oana Ionescu)
These workshops, methodological guidance, are based largely on the active participation of students.
Each workshop focuses on a general and integrator theme, but with related sub-themes that will be addressed over time: dynamic optimization, updating, time scale, modeling, game theory (eg Kyoto ) etc. Students receive a research article in the economic literature that they should read and study to prepare an active participation in each session. The quality and effectiveness of participation in discussions aimed at developing their ability to synthesize the scientific criticism and to take into account other and their discipline.
