A general model for CO2 regulation: the case of Denmark

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

For both economic, political, and administrative reasons, a mixed design of permit market, bubble and tax may be preferable for CO2 regulation. In the case of Denmark, a CO2 market should be introduced for the private manufacturing sector and an administratively set CO2 bubble should be introduced for the public electricity sector. Permits are then to be devaluated in year 2005 by 20%. A CO2 tax should be correctly set at a $50 level in year 2005 for households, transportation sector and private firms not participating in the CO2 market. This model may guide future energy policies in other countries as well.
