Climate change mitigation in Australia: tax or ...
71,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The primary question explored by this book is what alternative, carbon tax or emissions trading, would be an optimal policy for climate change mitigation in Australia. This book focuses on assessing carbon tax and emissions trading policy options on the basis of multiple criteria related to climate change policy in the Australian context. Recognising the complexity of the question, the author examines policy approaches capable of addressing the climate change mitigation problem and identifies the methodological approach appropriate to evaluate potential policy options. More specifically, the author determines the criteria necessary for climate change policy evaluation in Australia, ranks performance of the policy options adjacent to the criteria and, finally, evaluates and selects an optimal policy option for climate change mitigation in Australia.

Emissions Trading and Innovation
92,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One major objective of the introduction of emissions trading in the European Union was to promote innovation towards mitigating climate change. Focusing on the German electricity industry, this book analyses from a theoretical and an empirical perspective the extent to which this objective has been achieved and how the design of the trading scheme could be improved to this end. The theoretical analysis was largely based on an algebraic model which allowed for comparison of the relevant companies' profits under various configurations of the design options. The empirical analysis was grounded on two surveys of the electricity industry - one prior to the start of emissions trading, the other after two and a half years of experience had been gained - which enabled identification of the concrete changes in the companies' perceptions and attitudes towards innovation as a result of the introduction of emissions trading. The analysis reveals some indications that the instrument has basically functioned as originally intended although it has certainly not yet developed its full potential in terms of promoting innovation towards a more climate friendly electricity system.

Political Economy and Economic Impacts of Clima...
92,50 € *

This book provides a political economy analysis and an economic impact assessment of climate change policy. The analysis shows that the design of market-based instruments of climate policy can be explained by the behavior of environmental regulators who maximize their political support. The consideration of preferences of sectoral interest groups in regulatory decisions can induce economic inefficiencies in terms of a sectoral differentiation of environmental taxes or an asymmetric allocation of tradable emissions permits to parts of the economy. In turn, the design of climate policy instruments plays a decisive role for the associated economic impacts. The book argues that the economic benefits of linking domestic emissions trading schemes of industrialized nations depend on the sectoral scope of these schemes and the stringency of allowance allocation. Establishing regional flexibility of emissions reductions, e.g. via the access to carbon abatement options in developing countries, further improves the prospects for a cost-efficient and ambitious implementation of future climate policy.

Emissions trading schemes are increasingly beingadopted to combat climate change. New Zealand createdthe world s first all sectors all gases such schemein 2008, awarding tradable credits for carbonsequestration and imposing liabilities for emissions(i.e. harvest or deforestation) from forestry. Addingcarbon pricing as a decision variable complicatesforest and forest land valuation, highlighting thereal options available to foresters (i.e. to deferharvest or to change land use). Standard forestvaluation methodologies do not properly capture thevalue impacts of carbon pricing on forestry. Thisbook was commissioned by the New Zealand Ministry ofAgriculture and Forestry, and develops a new approach bootstrapping real options analysis (BROA) toaddress this shortcoming. The BROA approach is richenough to capture the complexities of forestvaluation under carbon pricing, while remainingtractable enough to find practical application. Itshould be useful to academics interested in valuingcomplex real options, as well as to academics,practitioners and policymakers interested inevaluating the impact of carbon pricing on forestryand forest land use.

Emissions Trading for Climate Policy

The 1997 Kyoto Conference introduced emissions trading as a policy instrument for climate protection. Bringing together scholars in the fields of economics, political science and law, this book, which was originally published in 2005, provides a description, analysis and evaluation of different aspects of emissions trading as an instrument to control greenhouse gases. The authors analyse theoretical aspects of regulatory instruments for climate policy, provide an overview of US experience with market-based instruments, draw lessons from trading schemes for the control of greenhouse gases, and discuss options for emissions trading in climate policy. They also highlight the background of climate policy and instrument choice in the US and Europe and the foundation of systems in Europe, particularly the EU's directive for a CO2 emissions trading system.
