    Border Adjustments on Energy Taxes: A Possible Tool for European Policymakers in Implementing the Kyoto Protocol?

    In diesem Artikel wird untersucht, ob die Europäische Union bestehende und künftig drohende Wettbewerbsnachteile infolge nationaler Energiesteuern mit Hilfe von Grenzausgleichssteuern (Border Tax Adjustments, BTA) gegenüber Nichtunterstützerstaaten des Kyoto-Protokolls von 1997 neutralisieren kann, ohne in Konflikt mit dem geltenden Welthandelsrecht zu geraten, insbesondere mit dem Allgemeinen Zoll- ...

    Perspektiven der nationalen Politik zum Klimaschutz: Herausforderungen und Langfristszenarien für Deutschland

    Innerhalb der internationalen Staatengemeinschaft und der Europäischen Gemeinschaft verfolgt Deutschland anspruchsvolle Ziele zum Klimaschutz. Zur Umsetzung der nationalen Klimaschutzpolitik sind deshalb in den vergangenen Jahren unterschiedliche Instrumente eingesetzt worden, die zum Teil bereits sichtbare Erfolge gezeigt haben. Dennoch müssen die Anstrengungen zum Klimaschutz künftig verstärkt werden, ...

    The Market Stability Reserve: Is Europe Serious about the Energy Union?

    The European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) has been implemented to provide a common climate policy instrument across European Union countries, to contribute to a credible investment perspective for low-carbon investors and support further European integration of energy markets. Thus the EU ETS is a key element of the European Energy Union.However, given the accumulation of a large surplus ...

    Dynamic Properties of Energy Affordability Measures

    Measures of affordability are applied in practice, e.g., to assess the affordability of energy services, water or housing. They can be interpreted as measures of deprivation in a specific domain of consumption. The large body of literature on affordability measure has little overlap with the existing literature on poverty measurement. A comprehensive assessment of the response of affordability measures ...

    Spillovers between Food and Energy Prices and Structural Breaks

    This paper estimates a bivariate VAR-GARCH(1,1) model to examine linkages between food and energy prices. The adopted framework is suitable to analyse both mean and volatility spillovers, and also allows for possible parameter shifts resulting from four recent events, namely: 1) the 2006 food crisis, 2) the Brent oil bubble, 3) the introduction of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) policy, and 4) the ...

    Modelling the Impact of Energy and Climate Policies

    Climate change mitigation and the transformation to a global low-carbon economy is a pressing issue in policy discussions and international negotiations. The political debate is supported by the scientific community with a large number of projections, pathway simulations and scenario analyses of the global energy system and its development over the next decades. These studies are often based on numerical ...

    Effizienzanalysemethoden in der Regulierung deutscher Elektrizitäts- und Gasversorgungsunternehmen

    Mehr als 1600 Verteilnetzbetreiber versorgen deutsche Haushalte mit Strom und Gas. Dabei handelt es sich um „natürliche Monopole“, d.h. es gibt keinen direkten Wettbewerb zwischen den Unternehmen, sondern werden sie durch die Bundesnetzagentur im Anreizregulierungsverfahren reguliert. Herzstück dieses Regulierungsverfahren ist ein Benchmarking beruhend auf der Data Envelopment (DEA) Analysis und der ...

    What Clients Want: Choices between Lawyers' Offerings

    We analyze a client's choice of contract in auctions where Dutch law firms compete for cases. The distinguishing feature is that lawyers may submit bids with any fee arrangement they prefer: an hourly rate, a fixed fee or a \mixed fee," which is a time-capped fixed fee plus an hourly rate for any additional hours should the case take longer than expected. This format of selling legal services is unusual ...

    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 Economic Assessment of Soil Carbon Sequestration with Biochar in Germany

    Biochar is a carbon-rich solid obtained from the heating of biomass in the (near) absence of oxygen in a process called pyrolysis. Its soil incorporation is increasingly discussed as a means to sequester carbon in soils and, thus, to help mitigate climate change. When deployed in agricultural soils in Germany, it has been found by Teichmann (2014a, b) that slowpyrolysis biochar from a wide variety ...
