Abstract

Les objectifs fixés par l'accord de Kyoto, s'ils seront respectés, imposent des changements fondamentaux dans la structure de l'économie nord-américaine. Ce texte met en évidence l'ampleur du défi de Kyoto en décrivant clairement l'inertie historique dans l'industrie électrique nord-américaine et en comparant deux scénarios potentiels d'évolution de l'industrie pour atteindre les objectifs de Kyoto. Nos résultats suggèrent que l'atteinte des objectifs de Kyoto dans le secteur électrique sera quasi impossible.
