Abstract

Le caractère composite de la fourniture d’électricité a des implications pour la politique de régulation de la sécurité d’approvisionnement dans le secteur de l’énergie électrique, ce que nous démontrons en nous appuyant sur le concept d’externalité politiquement pertinente. Les décideurs publics ne devraient pas, par exemple, chercher à faire payer à tous les usagers, et de manière uniforme, un investissement visant à améliorer la sécurité d’approvisionnement sur la seule base qu’ils en retirent un effet externe positif. Il est pertinent qu’ils paient pour cette amélioration seulement dans le cas où ce paiement viendrait affecter leurs propres décisions de consommation. Ce résultat suggère l’intérêt d’un marché de sécurité à la carte, complémentaire des marchés de gros, à condition que les coûts de transaction ne soient pas élevés.
