Long-term mitigation strategies and marginal abatement cost curves : a case study on Brazil (English)

How capital-based instruments facilitate the transition toward a low-carbon economy : a tradeoff between optimality and acceptability (English)

This paper compares the temporal profile of efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions induced by two mitigation strategies: a regulation of all emissions with a carbon price and a regulation of emissions embedded in new capital only, using capital-based instruments such as investment regulation, differentiation of capital costs, or a carbon tax with temporary subsidies on brown capital. ... See More +
