  • Market structure and the enforcement of emissions taxes

    This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the nature of an optimal emissions tax when firms’ emissions are not perfectly observable, specifically in two types of market structure: perfect competition and Cournot competition with and without free market entry.

  • Modelling an international market of CO2 emission permits

    Many regions, e.g. countries, have developed energy-economy models (such as MARKAL-MACRO, MM) to assess their energy policies, in particular concerning the curbing of their carbon dioxide CO2) emissions. To integrate regional MM models, we propose a multiregional MARKAL-MACRO (mMM) model. It enables one to study international cooperation to curb jointly CO2 emissions through a market of emission ...

  • Offsets in the international emissions market: Do buyers get what they pay for?

    This paper analyses buyer preferences in the context of the market for emissions trading under the UNFCCC. The purpose of this paper is to investigate pricing of offsets (Certified Emissions Reductions or “CERs” under the UNFCCC) (through an empirical survey of two segments of the authorized CER buyer market) to understand the relationship between buyer preferences for CER carbon offsets in the ...

  • A Comparison of Emission Taxes and Permit Markets for Controlling Correlated Externalities

    This paper provides an answer to the question: Are emission taxes an efficient and self-enforcing mechanism to control correlated externality problems? By “correlated externalities” we mean multiple pollutants that are jointly produced by a single source but cause differentiated regional and global externalities. By “self-enforcing” we mean a mechanism that accounts for the endogeneity that ...

  • Converging Markets

    The crucible in this scenario for the international climate regime is the emergence of an effective and liquid international carbon market with participation of private entities. In order to make the carbon market effective a bilateral negotiation track will develop, operating in parallel with the multilateral track under the UNFCCC. The purpose of the bilateral track is to integrate the various ...

  • Emissions Trading (Cap and Trade)

    The Kyoto Protocol, adopted by 170 nations but not the US, established the initial carbon trading market. The goal of an emissions trading plan is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Typically, a government agency sets an annual limit (cap) on the amount of emissions generated. Companies that emit greenhouse gases are given credits or allowances which represent the right to emit a ...
