Market Power and Technology Diffusion in an Energy-Intensive Sector Covered by an Emissions Trading Scheme

Zeng, Zhu
2019 Sustainability  
In the model, each firm needs to determine the optimal time to adopt the new emissions abatement technology, taking into account its benefits and costs, as well as its rival's strategic behavior.  ...  With this framework, the results suggest that firms will delay adoption of the new emissions abatement technology in the presence of market power.  ...  (i.e., the arrival time of new emissions abatement technologies is uncertain).  ...
