    Modernization and Innovation in the Materials Sector: Lessons from Steel and Cement

    Since 2007, the European cement and steel sectors have been characterized by substantial surplus production capacity. Hence re-investment in primary production of many materials remains limited and endangers the longer-term economic viability of many plants. Opportunities for innovation and modernization could overcome these challenges. They are linked to new demands for more efficient and lower-carbon ...

    Leakage Protection for Carbon-Intensive Materials Post-2020

    Climate protection is a global challenge that all countries have a common but differentiated responsibility to address. However, not all governments are willing to commit to targets of equal stringency, and individual countries may put different emphases on carbon pricing in their policy mix. Carbon prices may thus continue to differ over longer time horizons. Therefore, measures to protect production ...

    Europe's Mechanism for Countering the Risk of Carbon Leakage

    The EU’s Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is a regional cap-and-trade program in a world with no binding international climate agreement. This climate regulation may induce a relocation of production away from Europe, with potentially negative consequences for the European economy. This relocation could lead to carbon leakage, i.e. a shift of greenhouse gas emissions from Europe into regions with ...

    On the Emissions-Inequality Trade-off in Energy Taxation: Evidence on the German Car Fuel Tax

    By using estimates from an Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS), we investigate how the German energy tax on car fuels changes the private households’ CO2 emissions, living standards, and post-tax income distribution. Our results show that the tax implies a trade-off between the aim to reduce emissions and vertical equity, which refers to the idea that people with a greater ability to pay taxes should ...

    An Analysis of Allowance Banking in the EU ETS

    The existence of some 2 billion unused EU Allowances (EUAs) at the end of Phase II of the EU's Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) has sparked considerable debate about structural shortcomings of the EU ETS. At the same time, there has been a surprising lack of interest in one possible explanation of this accumulation of EUAs: the theory of intertemporal permit trading, i.e. allowance banking. In this ...

    The Local Economic Impact of Wind Power Deployment

    Globally installed wind power capacity has grown tremendously since 2000. This study focuses on the local economic impacts of wind power deployment. A theoretical model shows that wind power deployment is not necessarily driven by locally-accruing economic payoffs, but also by other factors such as emphasis on environmentally-friendly energy production and its associated benefits. The theoretical analysis ...

    Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind? The Effect of Wind Turbines on Residential Well-Being

    We investigate the effect of the physical presence of wind turbines on residential well-being in Germany, using panel data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) and a unique novel panel data set on more than 20,000 wind turbines for the time period between 2000 and 2012. Using a Geographical Information System (GIS), we calculate the proximity between households and the nearest wind turbine as ...

    New Spain: France Transmission Line: A Cost-Benefit Analysis

    Die Kosten der geplanten unterirdisch verlegten Hochspannungs-Gleichstrom-Übertragungsleitung (HGÜ) zwischen Spanien und Frankreich übersteigen die Investitionskosten einer vergleichbaren Wechselstrom-Freileitung. Die Frage stellt sich, ob die Mehrkosten mit ausreichendem Zusatznutzen für die Gesellschaft, wie zum Beispiel erhöhter Versorgungssicherheit, zu rechtfertigen sind. Aus diesem Grund wurden ...

    Global Warming, Technological Change and Trade in Carbon Energy: Challenge or Threat?

    Is it possible to combat global climate change through North-to-South technology transfer even without a global climate treaty? Or do carbon leakage and the rebound effect imply that it is possible to take advantage of technological improvements under the umbrella of a global arrangement only? For answering these questions two possible states of the world are discussed: one, where more energy efficient ...
