    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, ...

    Using Public Procurement as a Decarbonisation Policy: A Look at Germany

    Public authorities spend large proportions of their GDP on goods and services and are therefore responsible for a significant share of embedded emissions. Given this large impact, governments have the responsibility of decarbonizing their purchases, as well as the potential to influence markets towards sustainability. So-called ‘Green Public Procurement’ (GPP) consists in the use of environmental criteria ...

    Das Kyoto-Protokoll feiert 20. Geburtstag

    Am 11 . Dezember 2017 jährt sich die Verabschiedung des Kyoto-Protokolls zum 20. Mal. Grund genug, zurückzublicken auf die Implementierung dieses ersten bedeutenden Klimaschutzabkommens und zu fragen, welche Erfahrungen gemacht und Lehren daraus gezogen wurden. Die wichtigste davon: Die internationale Formulierung von Emissionsminderungszielen reicht für eine effektive Klimapolitik nicht aus. Deswegen ...

    Öffentliche Beschaffung als Dekarbonisierungsmaßnahme: Ein Blick auf Deutschland

    Die öffentliche Hand gibt große Anteile des Bruttoinlandsprodukts für Waren und Dienstleistungen aus und ist somit für einen erheblichen Anteil der Treibhausgasemissionen verantwortlich. Angesichts dieser beträchtlichen Auswirkungen steht der Staat einerseits in der Verantwortung, möglichst emissionsarm einzukaufen, und verfügt andererseits über das Potenzial, Märkte zu mehr Nachhaltigkeit zu bewegen. ...

    The Nexus of CO2 Emissions, Energy Consumption, Economic Growth, and Trade-Openness in WTO Countries

    This paper analyzes the dynamic relationship between CO2 emissions, energy consumption, GDP, and trade-openness from 1971 to 2013, based on the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis for 70 WTO countries. Using recently developed secondgeneration panel data methods, the empirical results support the EKC hypothesis for the high-, middle-, and lower-income panels used. Concerning the energy consumption ...

    2016 Heat Monitor: "Second Rent" Lower Despite Higher Heating Energy Consumption

    Residential heating is responsible for one-fifth of Germany’s energy consumption. Heating costs were around 562 euros per year for an average apartment in 2016, which is more than a 13th month’s rent minus heating costs (Kaltmiete). These are the findings of the 2016 Heat Monitor, published by the German Institute for Economic Research and ista Deutschland GmbH. The report presents evaluations based ...
