The low prices in the European Emission Trading System (EU ETS) have triggered discussions of various possible reforms. One option is to decouple the CO 2 prices from renewable energy policy by adjusting the emission cap to renewable energy investment overshoots. We introduce two ways of reducing the CO 2 cap in response to overshoots of...

The EU parliament has accepted a proposal of the EU commission on the backloading of EU emission allowances (EUA), where the auctioning of EUAs is postponed to future time periods. The EU commission has also proposed a market stability reserve (MSR), which is a quantity-based stabilisation policy that is aimed at controlling the volume of EUAs...

In recent years the Europe Unions emission trading system (EU ETS) has experienced very low prices. This has triggered a political discussion about stabilising the EU ETS and improving incentives for investing in CO2 abatement. As a result of this discussion, the EU parliament accepted a proposal of the EU commission on the backloading of EU...

The recent low CO2 prices in the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) have triggered a discussion whether the EU ETS needs to be adjusted. We study the effects of CO2 price floors and a price ceiling on the dynamic investment pathway of two interlinked electricity markets (loosely based on Great Britain, which already has introduced a...

Congestion management in liberalized power sectors is a complex multi-actor problem, where technical, economic, social, regulatory, and political aspects all play a role. This paper presents a participatory simulation tool that can be used to evaluate congestion management mechanisms. It was developed to facilitate research related to strategic...

The recent low of CO2 prices in the European Union Emission Trading Scheme have triggered a renewed discussion, whether the introduction of a CO2 price oor would lower investor uncertainty and thus trigger more investment in low-carbon electricity generation. We compare the effects of a CO2 price floor on the dynamic investment pathway of an...

Carbon taxation and emission trading are policy instruments for achieving significant CO2 emission reduction by inducing a shift in technology and fuel choice. Simulations with a quantitative agent-based model of a competitive electricity generation sector show that under both policies CO2 emissions increase for 10-15 years due to the long life...
