The COVID-19 crisis as a metric for triggering energy transition: elements for the long term

Abstract

This paper explores the effects of lockdown on French energy uses in order to provide a source of information on the link between lifestyle and energy uses for the construction of long-term energy demand scenarios. The aim of the first constructed scenario is to evaluate whether French carbon neutrality objectives could be attained by 2050 if we were to pursue the lifestyle imposed during lockdown for a long period. This scenario will allow us to put into perspective the scale of behavioral changes necessary to achieve the implementation of the Paris Agreement. The second scenario considers the experiment of lockdown as a source of lifestyle mutations leading to more energy sobriety. This scenario is an alternative proposal for avoiding a rebound in greenhouse gas emissions after the crisis.
