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 € *

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.

Forest Valuation under Carbon Pricing

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.

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

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.

At present, as the national carbon emissions trading will be launched, China voluntary emission reduction mechanisms (China Certified Emission Reduction, CCER)usher in the new opportunities for development. As one of the environmental protection industry which is strongly supported by the country, municipal solid waste incineration power generation also ushers in the new business model--solid waste incineration power generation of CCER project. Under the new business model, to make the right investment decisions, it is necessary to consider how to ensure the scientific and rationality of investment value evaluation. It becomes the key to capture market opportunities. And it helps the companies keep competitive and sustainable development. As a result of China's carbon trading market is still at the initial stage, the fluctuation of future CCER trading price will bring uncertainty to the project revenue.The paper brings the uncertainty into the evaluation of garbage incineration power generation CCER project, constructs the evaluation model for this kind of project investment which is based on real options, and provides the scientific method for enterprises and project investors.
