    Effectiveness and Heterogeneous Effects of Purchase Grants for Electric Vehicles

    We evaluate German purchase subsidies for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) using data on new vehicle registrations in Germany during 2015-2022. We account for confounding time trends and interacting EU-level CO2 standards using neighboring countries as a control group. The program was cost-ineffective, as only 40% of BEV and 25% of PHEV registrations were ...

    Supporting the Transition to Climate-Neutral Production: An Evaluation Under the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures

    To reach climate neutrality, carbon emissions from the production of basic materials need to be curtailed. When governments encourage this transition by adopting support measures, the measures must comply with the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures. This article analyzes three selected support schemes under the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures: (i) free allocation ...

    Coase and Cap-and-Trade: Evidence on the Independence Property from the European Carbon Market

    I examine the Coasean independence property in a large multinational cap-and-trade scheme for greenhouse gas emissions, the EU Emissions Trading System. I analyze whether emissions of power producers are independent from allowance allocations by leveraging a change in allocation policy for a difference-in-differences strategy. The evidence suggests that the independence property holds overall and for ...

    The Emission Intensity Effect: Carbon Border Adjustments in the Presence of Heterogeneous Firms

    In the absence of globally coordinated action to combat climate change, governments are concerned that ambitious carbon pricing could harm the competitiveness of emission-intensive industries. A prominent measure to prevent that manufacturing producers relocate to countries with laxer environmental regulation are carbon border adjustments often referred to as carbon tariffs. Several studies have...

    Small change won’t do – Why we must change the system to stop the climate crisis

    The Climate crisis is hurting the people who have the least resources and voice. Climate action is urgent, and must be well designed to deliver a fair transition globally, as the recently published International System Change Compass (ISCC) describes.  After the G7 summit and before the political summer break the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and the Open Society...
