    Abstract

    [fre] Coût dans le secteur de la distribution d'électricité : économies d'échelle, économies de densité et formes . institutionnelles par Olivier Evrard et Bernard Lejeune . Cet article a pour objet d'évaluer empiriquement la pertinence économique (en termes d'efficience-coût) de la politique de délégation de la distribution d'électricité des communes vers des organismes ou sociétés extra-communales. Pour ce faire, les possibilités d'économies d'échelle et de densité au sein du secteur ainsi que les coûts d'exploitation relatifs des diverses formes institutionnelles existantes sont évalués sur base de l'estimation d'une fonction de coût hédonique à court terme. [eng] Electricity Distribution Costs: Economies of Scale, Economies of Density and Institutional Forms . by Olivier Evrard and Bernard Lejeune . The purpose of this paper is to empirically evaluate the economic pertinence (in terms of cost effectiveness) of the policy of delegating local electricity distribution to non-local organisations or companies. We evaluate the sector's possibilities for economies of scale and density and the running costs of the different existing institutional forms based on the estimation of a short-term hedonic cost function.
