Abstract: The distributional consequences of environmental policies are a major issue for the public acceptability of energy transitions, as the Yellow-vest demonstrations highlighted. Our research objective is to assess the short and mid-term distributional impacts of policy packages on firms and households – rather than of single policy instruments - including carbon taxing, technology adoption subsidies and compensating lump-sum transfers. We offer insights on the fair transition promoted by the EU Fit-for-55 proposal with a case-study on two successive versions of the French low-carbon strategy.
