    Project-Based Carbon Contracts: A Way to Finance Innovative Low-Carbon Investments

    Low and uncertain carbon prices are often stated as a major obstacle for industrial sector investments in technologies to deliver deep emissions reductions. Project-based carbon contracts underwritten by national governments could addressregulatory risk, lower financing costs and strengthen incentives for emission reductions at investment and operation stage. In this paper design options for project-based ...

    Benchmarks for Emissions Trading – General Principles for Emissions Scope

    Greenhouse gas emission benchmarks are widely implemented as a policy tool, as more countries move to implement carbon pricing mechanisms for industrial emissions. In particular, benchmarks are used to determine the level of free allowance allocation in emission trading schemes, which are distributed as a measure to prevent carbon leakage. This paper analyses how benchmark designs impact firms’ production ...

    Time-Consistent Carbon Pricing

    In this paper we show that carbon pricing is subject to time-inconsistency and we investigate solutions to improve on the problem and restore the incentive for the private sector to invest in low-carbon innovation. We show that a superior price- investment equilibrium can be sustained in the long-term, if the policy-maker is enough forward looking and allowed to build reputation. In the short-term, ...

    Financing Power: Impacts of Energy Policies in Changing Regulatory Environments

    Power systems with increasing shares of wind and solar power generation have higher capital and lower operational costs than traditional technologies. This increases the importance of the cost of finance for total system cost. We quantify how renewable policy design can influence cost of finance by addressing regulatory risk and facilitating hedging. We use interview data on wind power financing costs ...

    Bridging the Industrial Energy Efficiency Gap: Assessing the Evidence from the Italian White Certificate Scheme

    The Italian white certificate scheme is the main national policy instrument to incentivise energy efficiency of the industrial sector, with savings from white certificates amounting to 2% of Italy's 2012 primary energy consumption. The mechanism sets binding energy-saving targets on electricity and gas distributors with at least 50,000 clients and includes a voluntary opt-in model for participation ...

    Productivity Measurement with Natural Capital

    This paper proposes a measurement framework that explicitly accounts for the role of natural capital in productivity measurement. It is applied to aggregate economy data from the OECD Productivity Database, with natural capital data from the World Bank. It is shown that the direction of the adjustment to productivity growth depends on the rate of change of natural capital extraction relative to the ...

    Environmental Policies and Productivity Growth: Evidence across Industries and Firms

    This paper investigates the impact of changes in environmental policy stringency on industry- and firm-level productivity growth in a panel of OECD countries. To test the strong version of the Porter Hypothesis (PH), we extend a neo-Schumpeterian productivity model to allow for effects of environmental policies. We use a new environmental policy stringency (EPS) index and let the effect of countries׳ ...

    Climate Friendly Materials Platform

    Übersicht Grundstoffe wie Aluminium, Zement und Stahl sind für unsere Volkswirtschaften von zentraler Bedeutung, aber ihre Produktion macht etwa 16 Prozent der europäischen und 25 Prozent der globalen Treibhausgasemissionen aus. Daher ist es schwer vorstellbar, wie Europa die Verpflichtungen aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen ohne nennenswerte Emissionsminderungen in der Grundstoffindustrie...
