Article

In Brazil, there are almost ten million people relying on traditional use of biomass for cooking, which correspond to about five percent of the country's population. The vast majority lives in poor municipalities away from urban centers. The replacement of fuelwood for LPG is the result of an intense urbanization process and governmental interventi...
Article
Full-text available
Solutions based exclusively on technology are unlikely to fully deliver a transition towards a low-carbon society. Shifts in consumption patterns and lifestyles associated with technological solutions are essential to achieve safe GHG concentration levels. Considering households' consumption patterns, residential electricity consumption represents...

Almost 38% of the world’s population rely on traditional biomass for cooking and heating in 2015. In Nepal, there are almost 22 million people relying on traditional use of fuelwood for cooking/heating in 2015, which corresponds to about 80% of the country’s population. In Brazil, there are almost 10 million people relying on traditional use of fue...
Research
Full-text available
Despite being among the 15th most unequal countries in the world, Brazil has made progress in the past four decades. Its Gini index has decreased from 0.623 to 0.515. In fact, almost nine million of households ascended to middle and affluent classes since 2000. Therefore, higher income levels mean higher consumption and carbon footprint. At the sam...

Full-text available
In the first decade of 21st century, Brazil experienced an important distributional change with almost nine million households ascending to middle and affluent income classes. In this context, the study’s main objective is to evaluate the distribution and patterns of Brazilian household expenditure, and the related total (direct and indirect) energ...
Article
As one of the leading nations on climate negotiations, Brazil has to go beyond its voluntary commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and become a more constructive and less low-key player in the UNFCCC negotiations. In this context, the studys main objective was to evaluate the Brazilian residential energy consumption, its regional specificity, a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Currently, there are 1.3 billion people with no access to electricity worldwide. Almost 1 million of those are in the Brazilian Amazon region. Yet, electricity access to allow basic needs is not enough to ensure a sustainable development. Hence, it is important to understand linkages among poverty alleviation, energy access, and carbon footprint of...
Article
The objective of this study is to verify whether natural gas is only a backup fuel against shortages of upgraded biogas or a threat to the Swedish vision of pursuing a vehicle fleet independent of fossil fuels. The paper uses Stockholm County as a case study to guide our analysis. The region not only concentrates the largest number of inhabitants i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper uses Stockholm County as a case study to guide our analysis. The region not only concentrates the largest number of inhabitants in Sweden but also holds alone around 35% of the Swedish fleet of passenger cars using gas as fuel. The region's potential vehicle gas demands are 460 GWh by 2020 and 1 202 GWh by 2030. The methodological approac...
Conference Paper

Transitions to "low-carbon" development paths with limited greenhouse gases emissions are unlikely to be achievable solely via technological solutions: behavior, notably consumption patterns, will also have to evolve.

Thesis
Full-text available
Brazil has historically adopted the model of electricity production based on hydropower (71%) which uses, mostly, large reservoirs to reduce the influences on the variation of affluent natural energy. However, it has proven impossible for the expansion of the Brazilian energy matrix to remain the same as the main areas for expansion (Northern r...

Transitions to "low-carbon" development paths (i.e., to development paths with limited greenhouse gases emissions) are unlikely to be achievable solely via technological solutions; behavior, notably consumption patterns, will also have to evolve. However, an assumption implicit in most GHG emissions scenarios is that as income per capita converge across countries, households consumption patterns will converge as well, leading to potentially very high demand for energy, very high demand for natural resources and very high emissions. ECOPA precisely aims at examining how flexible the link between income per capita and consumption patterns is; and at drawing implications of these findings for future emissions scenarios. To do so, ECOPA maps and compares consumption patterns, and their evolution, in France, an "old" industrialized economy, and Brazil, a rapidly emerging economy. In both countries, a combination of econometric analysis of consumption data, household surveys and in-depth studies of representative goods and services is used to (i) map consumption patterns across income groups, and (ii) explore the determinants of their changes over time. Strong emphasis is put on obtaining consistent monetary and physical flows. This is necessary to analyze the energy and emissions implications of consumption patterns, but this constitutes a significant theoretical and empirical stumbling block. Finally, on the basis of the retrospective analysis, scenarios of how household consumption patterns in the two countries might evolve are built and their implications for energy and GHG emissions are computed.
