Globalization of carbon markets

How to create a robust and sufficiently high price signal on carbon that can be gradually spread to the whole global economy.

Research area A

This research area provided an intellectual centerpiece for scientific activity in the program. It focused on mechanisms and incentives for the development of regimes that ensure a price signal that trigger long term investments in low carbon technologies.

It had the long term targets of GHG emission reductions as a basis for the research and it also looked into possible distortions between policy areas and markets due to e.g. allocation of allowances and how to overcome such distortions, which are crucial for linking and integrating markets.
