Lecture on “Co-benefits of energy efficiency: Quantifying productivity impact”

Global Change Programme of Jadavpur University (GCP-JU) organized a lecture session with Souran Chatterjee on January 16, 2017 (Monday) from 3.30 PM to 4.30 PM at the office of Global Change Programme, First Floor, Biren Roy Research Laboratory, Jadavpur University. 

Souran Chatterjee is a Ph.D. research scholar at Central European University, Hungary. He is also working as an Economist in Horizon 2020 project, European Commission.

He spoke on “Co-benefits of energy efficiency: Quantifying productivity impact”.


Note on the lecture:

Full economic assessment is required to understand the full potential of any energy policy. However, today these assessments often do not include important factors such as co-benefits/multiple impacts of any energy policy. The inclusion of additional impact into decision-making analysis may influence any policy maker to design a better policy portfolio. Most of the time, multiple impacts of energy efficiency policy are not incorporated into ex-ante policy analysis due to the absence of mature methodologies. Therefore, this research contributes to the methodological tool box by proposing the solutions to the key methodological challenges of aggregation of multiple impacts including the risks of double counting.
