What Really Happens: International Lessons from Greenhouse Gas Emissions Management Policies
This project will test the assumption that pricing carbon emissions is an effective way of reducing them. There are numerous examples of carbon pricing from a simple tax (wholesale, retail or both) to a cap and trade system. Different governments have used different designs which include credits and redistribution of the cost impacts. CERI intends to review the multiple designs that have been implemented globally to see if it can be demonstrated which design is the most effective in terms of reducing emissions at the lowest cost.
