Effects of Interactions between EU Climate and Energy Policies

19 November 2016

The CARISMA case study analysis on energy and climate policy interactions aims to complement existing literature on policy interactions by addressing a set of aspects of policy interactions related to: the policy levels at which interactions may occur (EU, national or regional levels), inter-temporal interactions (e.g., short term versus long term policy interactions), and interactions that occur if stakeholders are indirectly affected by a policy instrument (even if they are explicitly excluded from the policy).

Four cases studies have been analysed :

  • France: Impact of the implementation of the RED and energy efficiency measures on GHG emissions in in the electricity sector under the EU ETS.
  • Austria: Interaction between energy efficiency policy measures at the levels of the federal and regional governments.
  • Greece: Impact of the planned Energy Efficiency Obligation scheme in Greece on the GHG emissions in the Greek power sector covered by the EU ETS.
  • EU-level: Implications of interaction between the EU ETS and the Renewable Energy Directive

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.

    Maximising benefits of carbon pricing through carbon revenue use: A review of international experiences

    Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap. With raising revenues from carbon taxes and emission trading systems (ETSs) that have tripled since the Paris Agreement, and an upward trend that could continue in the medium-term, ‘how to use carbon revenues’ has become a crucial question. This report, prepared as an activity of the EU-funded European Union Climate Dialogues (EUCDs) project, aims to inform policymakers and practitioners on lessons learned and ways forward on the use of carbon revenues, with a comprehensive approach based on a review of international experiences.
