Quantifying the Externalities of Renewable Energy Plants Using Wellbeing Data: The Case of Biogas

Although there is strong support for renewable energy plants, they are often met with local resistance. We quantify the externalities of renewable energy plants using well-being data. We focus on the example of biogas, one of the most frequently deployed technologies besides wind and solar. To this end, we combine longitudinal household data with novel panel data on more than 13, 000 installations ...

Market Concentration in Europe: Evidence from Antitrust Markets

An increasing body of empirical evidence is documenting trends toward rising concentration, profits, and markups in many industries around the world since the 1980s. Two major criticisms of these studies is that concentration and market shares are poorly measured at the national industry level while firm level revenues are a poor indicator of product sales. We use a novel database that identifies over ...

A Retrospective Study of State Aid Control in the German Broadband Market

We provide an evaluation of the impact of public subsidy schemes that aimed to support the development of basic broadband infrastructure in rural areas of Germany. Such subsidies are subject to state aid control by the European Commission (EC). While the EC increasingly recognises the role of economic analysis in controlling public aid to companies, there are to date no full retrospective studies performed ...

The Leniency Rule Revisited: Experiments on Cartel Formation with Open Communication

The experimental literature on antitrust enforcement provides robust evidence that communication plays an important role for the formation and stability of cartels. We extend these studies through a design that distinguishes between innocuous communication and communication about a cartel, sanctioning only the latter. To this aim, we introduce a participant in the role of the competition authority, ...

The U.S. Coal Sector between Shale Gas and Renewables: Last Resort Coal Exports?

Coal consumption and production have sharply declined in recent years in the U.S., despite political support. Reasons are mostly unfavorable economic conditions for coal, including competition from natural gas and renewables in the power sector, as well as an aging coal-fired power plant fleet. Nevertheless, coal remains a major energy source in the North American energy markets. Supplementing EMF34 ...

Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen: Energieverbrauch 2020 auf historischem Tief

Der Energieverbrauch in Deutschland sinkt in diesem Jahr voraussichtlich auf einen historischen Tiefststand: Vorläufigen Berechnungen der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen (AGEB) zufolge, an der auch das Deutsche Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW Berlin) beteiligt ist, wurde im Jahr 2020 8,7 Prozent weniger Energie verbraucht als im Vorjahr. Gegenüber 2006, dem Jahr mit dem bisher ...

Nationaler Brennstoffemissionshandel birgt kein erhöhtes Risiko von Carbon Leakage

Die Einführung des nationalen Brennstoffemissionshandels birgt nach Einschätzung von DIW-WissenschaftlerInnen kein erhöhtes Risiko eines Carbon Leakage, also der Verlagerung von klimaschädlicher Industrie ins Ausland. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt eine Studie des Deutschen Instituts für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW Berlin) und des Münchener ifo Instituts, die im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums ...
