The Role of Financial Services in Climate Adaption in Developing Countries

Der Finanz- und Versicherungssektor (im folgenden Finanzsektor genannt) kann Klimarisiken mindern und damit eine zentrale Rolle bei der Anpassung an den Klimawandel spielen. Allerdings ist der Finanzsektor gerade in den Entwicklungsländern mit besonders hohen Klimarisiken und hoher Klimavulnerabilität kaum präsent, wofür insbesondere das Fehlen von Geschäftsmöglichkeiten verantwortlich gemacht Fin

Rationales und irrationales Verhalten in der russischen Klimapolitik

Russland nutzt die internationalen Klimaschutzinstrumente nur geringfügig und verspätet, obwohl die russische Wirtschaft davon profitieren könnte. Auch einer Verlängerung des Kyoto-Protokolls steht Russland abweisend gegenüber. Dieses scheinbar irrationale Verhalten hat nachvollziehbare Gründe, wenn man die unveränderte Energieabhängigkeit der russischen Wirtschaft betrachtet. Die

Removing Cross-Border Capacity Bottlenecks in the European Natural Gas Market: A Proposed Merchant-Regulatory Mechanism

We propose a merchant-regulatory framework to promote investment in the European natural gas network infrastructure based on a price cap over two-part tariffs. As suggested by Vogelsang (2001) and Hogan et al. (2010), a profit maximizing network operator facing this regulatory constraint will intertemporally rebalance the variable and fixed part of its two-part tariff so as to expand the congested

Merger Efficiency and Welfare Implications of Buyer Power

This paper analyzes the welfare implications of buyer mergers, which are mergers between downstream firms from different markets. We focus on the interaction between the merger's effects on downstream efficiency and on buyer power in a setup where one manufacturer with a non-linear cost function sells to two locally competitive retail markets. We show that size discounts for the merged entity has

Renewable Electric Energy Integration: Quantifying the Value of Design of Markets for International Transmission Capacity

Integrating large quantities of supply-driven renewable electricity generation remains a political and operational challenge. One of the main obstacles in Europe to installing at least 200 GWs of power from variable renewable sources is how to deal with the insufficient network capacity and the congestion that will result from new flow patterns. We model the current methodology for controlling

The Globalization of Steam Coal Markets and the Role of Logistics: An Empirical Analysis

In this paper, we provide a comprehensive multivariate cointegration analysis of three parts of the steam coal value chain - export, transport and import prices. The analysis is based on a rich dataset of international coal prices; in particular, we combine data on steam coal prices with freight rates, covering the period December 2001 until August 2009 at weekly frequency. We then test whether

Overcoming Data Limitations in Nonparametric Benchmarking: Applying PCA-DEA to Natural Gas Transmission

We empirically demonstrate a practical approach of efficiency evaluation with limited data availability in some regulated industries. We apply PCA-DEA for radial efficiency measurement to U.S. natural gas transmission companies in 2007. PCA-DEA reduces dimensions of the optimization problem while maintaining most of the variation in the original data. Our results suggest that the methodology

Overcoming Data Limitations in Nonparametric Benchmarking: Applying PCA-DEA to Natural Gas Transmission

This paper provides an empirical demonstration for a practical approach of efficiency evaluation against the background of limited data availability in some regulated industries. Here, traditional DEA may result in a lack of discriminatory power when high numbers of variables but only limited observations are available. We apply PCA-DEA for radial efficiency measurement to US natural gas
