I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics is a think tank that provides public and private decision-makers with expertise on economic and financial issues related to
the energy and ecological transition.
We strive to implement the Paris Agreement, and make global financial flows compatible with low-carbon development that is resilient to climate change.

I4CE is an initiative of Caisse des Dépôts and Agence Française de Développement and is also supported by Morocco’s Caisse de Dépôts et Gestion.

I4CE works on 4 research programs, which focus on the actors of the energy transition


I4ce deploys Its expertise through 3 action modes:

Providing research and expertise

I4CE participates in European research programs, working groups, and responds to consultations. I4CE publishes research works and expert reports.
We respond, alone or with partners, to requests for expertise for private or public entities whose deliverables are subject to public refunds.

Building capacity

I4CE disseminates knowledge through publications and leads action research projects.
I4CE designs, alone or with partners, training programs for public and private decision-makers. These modules are of varying lengths: from half a day to the annual program.
I4CE shares its expertise and pools the results of applied and academic research through the animation of exchange clubs that bring together, several times a year, practitioners, researchers and entrepreneurs.

Contributing to public debates :

I4CE organizes events (conferences, workshops, breakfast debates).
We respond to public consultations from French, European or supra-national institutions and participate in expert working groups.
