Should we extract the European shale gas ? The effect of climate and financial constraints

The study uses a model for Europe where electricity may be produced by coal, shale gas or solar, in which carbon concentration must remain below a ceiling ;   at the optimum, tightening the ceiling brings forward solar use and, in most cases, increases shale gas extraction. ; a binding constraint on energy expenditures may lead to over-extract shale gas and to postpone solar use
