Does the 2023 budget allow the French to cope with the energy crisis? Think tanks analysis

Webinars - By : Damien DEMAILLY

A webinar was organized by IDDRI, l’OFCE et l’Institut Jacques Delors and Institute for Climate Economics I4CE on Thursday, December 14 from 12 to 1:15 pm


In the midst of an energy crisis, France is preparing for a winter of tension. As the French National Assembly prepares to vote on the 2023 budget bill and Europe tries to find a collective solution to this crisis, many questions remain open as to the ability to manage the economic and social emergency and the acceleration of the energy and climate transition.


Against this backdrop, four French think tanks have proposed a deciphering of the energy crisis and the responses provided by France’s 2023 budget and by the European Union:


  • When will the energy crisis end?
  • Is the tariff shield an effective response to the economic, social and ecological challenges of this crisis?
  • Between fragmented national approaches and the desire to speak with one voice: what solutions can be found to manage the energy crisis on a European scale?
  • Is the 2023 budget up to the challenge of accelerating the climate transition?



  • Phuc-Vinh Nguyen, Researcher on French and European Energy Policies, Jacques Delors Institute;
  • Andreas Rüdinger, Coordinator on Energy Transition in France, IDDRI;
  • Xavier Timbeau, Director of OFCE;
  • Damien Demailly, Deputy Director, I4CE

    After 5 years of the Green Deal, where is Europe on the road to decarbonisation?

    Following the European elections on June 9, the EU is adapting to a new, more conservative, political reality. Yet despite changing political tides, a new EU leadership will still need to find a credible answer to how the continent is to reach climate neutrality by 2050. To understand how to get there, we need a clear understanding of the progress already made. This is where the European Climate Neutrality Observatory (ECNO) comes in.

    Social and Climate Budget Tagging: Insights from Indonesia

    Attention is growing to the need to tackle climate and social issues jointly. Indeed, both climate change and climate policies affect social issues such as poverty, inequality, or access to healthcare. A well-known example is that of carbon pricing, a climate policy which can have regressive effects in some contexts. As another example, climate change induced heatwaves are disproportionately likely to impact poorer individuals who typically have more constrained access to healthcare, physical jobs in outdoor conditions, and through indirectly driving up food prices. To foster an effective and sustainable transition to low-carbon and resilient economies, policymakers need to ensure individuals do not lose more from climate policies than they already lose from the effects of climate change, but instead benefit from them.

    Approaches to meeting the Paris Agreement goals: options for Public Development Banks

    Options for Public Development Banks. Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015, several public development banks (PDBs) have responded with structured approaches to align their operations with the Agreement’s expectations (as described in Section 1). However, many PDBs, particularly those in emerging markets and developing economies, are yet to adopt an approach to align with the Paris Agreement (i.e., Paris alignment). As entities whose investment mandates are established by the Parties to the Paris Agreement (i.e., national governments), PDBs have specific obligations derived directly from these Parties’ commitments to act across all policy and regulatory frameworks under their jurisdictions, including for state-owned or state-mandated institutions and agencies. Accordingly, PDBs are expected to operate in a manner that supports the achievement of the Paris goals. More specifically, they are obligated to integrate their activities within the Agreement’s implementation mechanism by providing financial, technical, and capacity building support that is entirely consistent with national low-emission climate-resilient development pathways.
