The Interaction of Emissions Trading and Renewable Energy Promotion

Jan Abrell, Hannes Weigt
2008 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper we analyze how the EU ETS and renewable support mechanisms influence one another.  ...  We find that in case of an ETS with a green certificate trading scheme or a feed-in system the price for carbon drops to zero due to the high share of CO 2 -neutral renewable generation.  ...  In practice, feed-in tariffs are financed via taxes on the electricity price.  ...

A machine learning model to investigate factors contributing to the energy transition of utility and independent power producer sectors internationally

Galina Alova, Ben Caldecott
2021 iScience  
There is evidence of independent power producers dominating the electricity sector's uptake of renewable energy, with utilities lagging behind.  ...  The results also suggest considerable differences in policy and market factor contributions to technology choices of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development vis-à-vis emerging economies.  ...  The results point to emission taxes augmenting the uplifting impact of feed-in-tariffs on solar capacity of IPPs (Figure S2A ).  ...
