Environmental and Climate Economics (ECE)
El grup de recerca Economia Ambiental i Climàtica (Environmental and Climate Economics) desenvolupa models integrats per abordar qüestions difícils i d’actualitat en la frontera entre l’economia, els estudis d’innovació i les ciències mediambientals, enfocat a promoure una transició ràpida i completa cap a una economia baixa en carboni. Algunes aplicacions específiques tracten temes d’energies renovables, transport i ciutats, mentre que s’emfatitzen metodologies d’economia evolucionària i de conducta, utilitzant modelització basada en múltiples agents interactius. Els projectes actuals tracten l’avaluació de paquets de polítiques climàtiques efectives, redirigint negociacions climàtiques internacionals cap a la tarificació del carboni, i la formació de clubs de clima internacionals. Tenim també un interès de llarga trajectòria en la relació entre el creixement econòmic i el medi ambient, i en particular com es veu afectat pel canvi climàtic i les polítiques.

Agent-based models (ABMs) have recently seen much application to the field of climate mitigation policies. They offer a more realistic description of micro behaviour than traditional climate policy models by allowing for agent heterogeneity, bounded rationality and non-market interactions over social networks.

Differences in CO2 emissions of solar PV production among technologies and regions: Application to China, EU and USA / Liu, Feng (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; van den Bergh, Jeroen (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
A widespread implicit assumption is that renewable energy options are approximately low-carbon. However, production and life cycles of such technologies tend to produce CO2 emissions. To minimize life-cycle emissions, one should account for such emissions and implement adequate policies to encourage innovation and adoption of well-performing technologies in this respect. [...]

Global competition dynamics of fossil fuels and renewable energy under climate policies and peak oil: A behavioural model / Zeppini, Paolo (University of Bath. Department of Economics) ; van den Bergh, Jeroen C.J.M. (Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
We develop a stochastic decision model to analyse the global competitive dynamics of fossil fuels and renewable energy. It describes coal, oil/gas, solar and wind. These differ not only in pollution intensities but also in profitability and innovation potential. [...]

16 p, 3.1 MB Social reinforcement with weighted interactions / Konc, Théo (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Savin, Ivan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The speed and extent of diffusion of behaviors in social networks depends on network structure and individual preferences. The contribution of the present study is twofold. First, we introduce weighted interactions between potential adopters that depend on the similarity in their preferences and moderate the strength of social reinforcement. [...]

Replicator dynamics in value chains : explaining some puzzles of market selection / Cantner, Uwe (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät) ; Savin, Ivan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Vannuccini, Simone (University of Sussex. Science Policy Research Unit)
The pure model of replicator dynamics provides important insights in the evolution of markets but has not met with much empirical support. This article extends the model to the case of firms vertically integrated into value chains (VCs). [...]

Perceived fairness and public acceptability of carbon pricing : a review of the literature / Maestre-Andrés, Sara (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Drews, Stefan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Bergh, Jeroen C. J. M. van den (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
While carbon pricing is widely seen as a crucial element of climate policy and has been implemented in many countries, it also has met with strong resistance. We provide a comprehensive overview of public perceptions of the fairness of carbon pricing and how these affect policy acceptability. [...]

An agrowth strategy, defined as being agnostic and indifferent about GDP growth, is proposed as an alternative to unconditional anti- and pro-growth strategies. It is argued that such a strategy can contribute to reducing scientific and political polarization in the long-standing debate on growth versus the environment. [...]

Tackling the plastic problem : a review on perceptions, behaviors, and interventions / Heidbreder, Lea Marie (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Interdisziplinäre Forschungsgruppe Umwelt) ; Babloka, Isabella (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Interdisziplinäre Forschungsgruppe Umwelt) ; Drews, Stefan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Menzel, Claudia (Universität Koblenz-Landau. Sozial-, Umwelt- und Wirtschaftspsychologie)
The excessive production and consumption of plastic has serious consequences on the environment and human health. The reduction of plastic has therefore become a major global challenge. As technical solutions might be insufficient to curb the problem, a perspective highlighting the impact of human behavior is needed. [...]

Fossil fuel divestment and climate change : Reviewing contested arguments / Braungardt, Sibylle (Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI) ; Bergh, Jeroen C. J. M. van den (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Dunlop, Tessa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The strategy of fossil fuel divestment has attracted considerable attention in recent years, particularly in the press and social media. Spearheaded as a movement based on ethical principles, divestment has been suggested to play a potential role in shaping public opinion and policymaking on climate change. [...]
