BC3 Journal Article “The importance of regret minimization in the choice for renewable energy programmes: Evidence from a discrete choice experiment”

This study provides a methodologically rigorous attempt to disentangle the impact of various factors – unobserved heterogeneity, information and environmental attitudes – on the inclination of individuals to exhibit either a utility maximization or a regret minimization behaviour in a discrete choice experiment for renewable energy programmes described by four attributes: greenhouse gas emissions, power outages, employment in the energy sector, and electricity bill.

BC3 Journal Article “The Determinants of Brownfields Redevelopment in England”

This paper uses discrete choice models, supported by GIS data, to analyse the National Land Use Database, a register of more than 21,000 English brownfields—previously used sites with or without contamination that are currently unused or underused. Using spatial discrete choice models, including the first application of a spatial probit latent class model with class-specific neighbourhood effects, we find evidence of large local differences in the determinants of brownfields redevelopment in England and that the reuse decisions of adjacent sites affect the reuse of a site.

Valuing nature’s contributions to people: the IPBES approach

A new paper published in the journal Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, and led by Unai Pascual (Ikerbasque Research Professor at BC3) and member of the Multidisciplinary Expert Panel of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) synthesizes the vision by IPBES about the values of nature’s contributions to people (NCP) for a good quality of life.

BC3 Journal Article “Historical Energy Price Shocks and their Changing Effects on the Economy”

The purpose of this paper is to identify the changes in the impact of energy shocks on economic activity — with an interest in assessing if an economy's vulnerability and resilience to shocks improved with economic development. Using data on the United Kingdom over the last three hundred years, the paper identifies supply, aggregate demand and residual shocks to energy prices and estimates their changing influence on energy prices and GDP.
