Valeur touristique des aménités environnementales et nuisances associées aux infrastructures d'énergie re-nouvelable : une approche hédonique spatiale

Abstract : Installing greater numbers of renewable energy solutions in France has the potential to generate various negative externalities for the users of rural areas. Wind turbines and overhead power lines can often be seen as "eyesores" which adversely affect the aesthetic qualities of rural landscapes, thus reducing their use value. In this study, we apply the hedonic price method to evaluate this loss of value in terms of external costs for the tourist sector. The results of a generalized method of moments estimation, to deal with spatial autocorrelation of errors, highlighted the importance of comfort and proximity to the coast in determining the rental price of each property. They also confirm that rental price was significantly reduced when properties were located close to energy infrastructures. While it is important not to lose sight of the fact that the majority of rural cottages are currently located at some considerable distance from energy infrastructures, the external costs for vacation rentals highlighted in this study show that appropriate support mechanisms need to be put in place.
