Article
This empirical study discusses both the incentive and redistributive effects of nonlinear tariffs on the drinking water of developed countries. Using an original panel database based on a natural experience with drinking water in France, we econometrically explore the impact of tariffs changes on consumption (linear versus nonlinear). We demonstrat...
Article
L’approche des tarifs de l’eau potable en France a changé depuis 2010, puisque les collectivités peuvent recourir à des tarifs progressifs croissants par blocs. Ces tarifs, bien qu’initialement conçus comme des solutions de second rang aux pertes sèches du monopole, se révèlent complexes à mettre en œuvre pour satisfaire d’autres objectifs. La réac...

La prise en compte des enjeux environnementaux et sociaux, le déploiement des réseaux intelligents et la contrainte forte de maîtrise des coûts ont conduit à la mise en œuvre de nouvelles pratiques...

Theoretically, these new tariffs aim to use more cost-reflective pricing to incentivise consumers to adopt the right behav...

Within this paper, we develop a simple overlapping generations model (OLG) with a renewable resource (forest) in the spirit of Koskela et al. (2002). Seeding activities (more broadly, forestry) are introduced in the form of a domestic production as well as a joy-of-giving bequest motive regarding the resource. In this simple framework, we show that...
Article
In this paper, we studied the influence of contract renewals on water prices in France. When studying French water contracts in force between 2008 and 2018, we found that contract renewals have little influence on the prices paid by consumers. However, at contract renewal times, the share of the price that goes to the firms decreases. This price de...
