Arbitrage between Energy Efficiency and Carbon Management in the Industry Sector: An Emerging vs. Developed Country Discrimination

Abstract : Following the Copenhagen Climate Conference in 2009, some countries have adopted carbon abatement pledges. As energy savings are a source of indirect carbon reduction, those pledges will impact the development of Energy Efficiency solutions. This study aims to quantify those impacts and determine their sensitivity to COP15 pledges within the competition with other cleaner technologies, especially on the supply-side. The study relies on the TIAM-FR model, which is a 15-region world version of the MARKAL/TIMES model family, where an Energy Efficiency-dedicated module was implemented. A focus is given on Europe, United States and China; and only the implementation of the Energy Efficiency solutions in the industrial sector is considered. On the supply side, the level of power generation is weakly changed with the carbon mitigation constraint while the power mix has a strong sensitivity for pledges more strict than COP15. On the demand side, Energy Efficiency implementation appears as the only lever in mature countries to achieve COP15 variant pledges, whereas a competition with cleaner generation technologies is pointed out according to the stringency of the pledge adopted by China.
