?Tarif progressif, efficience et équité?

Claude Crampes () and Jean-Marie Lozachmeur

Revue d'économie industrielle, 2014, vol. n° 148, issue 4, 133-160

Abstract: ?This article is devoted to the analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of convex pricing, more particularly Increasing-Block Pricing. ? We show that, contrary to the expectations of public authorities, progressive rates do not allow to both fighting against energy poverty and reducing total energy consumption. We also analyse the differences between the means-tested tariff for low-income households currently used in France for electricity, and the bonus-malus system on energy consumption by households stated by the law of April 15, 2013 and cancelled later.
