A Report for Industry on the Implications of Domestic Policy Design and Global Negotiations

This report aims to help decision makers in industry and the electricity sector better understand the implications of current climate policies in the European Union, the United States, and around the world.

Regardless of specific domestic approaches, or the outcomes of global negotiations, policies and actions to mitigate climate change will directly affect energy-intensive industries and the electricity sector around the world.

With this in mind, researchers in the Mistra Indigo program have during the last years tackled important questions about the globalization of carbon markets, carbon pricing to encourage long-term investments in low-carbon technologies, the distributional effects of climate policies at various levels, and the interactions between climate regulations and markets.

As the Mistra Indigo program is now moving towards the end, we have summed up some of our most important results regarding the subject in this report.
