practical tools and instruments can be mobilized to design and implement such innovative policies. Objective of the course : in an area where academic literature is sparse, the course will favor an empirical approach of various policy experiments with a comprehensive approach : what are the drivers of energy consumption ; what instrument (or package) would be more suited in a given situation ; how to actually design a policy intervention ? Special attention will be given to the multiple bjectives of energy policies (economic, social, environmental). Required reading : A Farewell to Fossil Fuels, Answering the Energy Challenge, Amory B.

This course proposes to explore why a demand side approach is more than ever necessary to respond to the economic, environmental and social difﬁculties generated by the current energy model, and what
Teachers : ksenia ERMOSHINA (Etudiante doctorante). Pedagogical format : Seminar Course validation : You will be evaluated along three axes : A weekly evaluation. Every week, we will ask you to + search documents pertaining to your controversy and to + analyse them using a series of methods and tools that we will teach you. You will collectively build a database that will become the natural resource for scholars and journalists willing to learn and understand your controversy. This database will be made public on the PSIA website once the term is over. A white paper. The insights gained from becoming specialists of your controversy will be consolidated into a white paper. The point of the paper is to sharpen the contentious points of the controversy and clarify its dynamics. So this is « white » as in normatively neutral but decidedly engaged in moving the controversy out of its opacity and shedding light on it. You will be helped every step 1581
