• Alternative designs for tariffs on embodied carbon. A global cost-effectiveness analysis 

      Böhringer, Christoph; Bye, Brita; Fæhn, Taran; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;682, Working paper, 2012)
      In the absence of effective world-wide cooperation to curb global warming, import tariffs on embodied carbon have been proposed as a potential supplement to unilateral emissions pricing. We systematically consider alternative ...
    • Are high oil prices profitable for OPEC in the long run? 

      Aune, Finn Roar; Glomsrød, Solveig; Lindholt, Lars; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;No. 416, Working paper, 2005)
      High oil prices are favourable for OPEC in the short run, but may undermine its future revenues. We search for the optimal oil price level for the producer group, using a partial equilibrium model for the oil market. The ...
    • Best i test, men hva så? : kommentarer til NOU 2001:29 

      Holmøy, Erling; Hægeland, Torbjørn; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Journal article, 2002)
      Referansetestingsutvalgets forslag til sammenligning av indikatorer for norske og utenlandske rammevilkår for næringslivet er svakt begrunnet. Vi mener rammevilkår for utenlandske bedrifter sjelden bør ha relevans for ...
    • Betyr egentlig kvotemarkedet noe for kraftprisene? 

      Bye, Torstein; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Journal article, 2005)
      Fra nyttår 2005 innførte EU og Norge kvotemarked for utslipp av klimagasser. I utgangspunktet skulle en tro, slik mange påstår, at kvoteprisen vil slå fullt ut i kraftmarkedet. Dette kan være tilfelle i enkeltimer, men ...
    • Carbon leakage from the clean development mechanism 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Strand, Jon (Discussion Papers;591, Working paper, 2009)
      The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an offset mechanism designed to reduce the overall cost of implementing a given target for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in industrialized Annex B countries of the Kyoto Protocol, ...
    • Carbon taxes and the petroleum wealth 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;No. 128, Working paper, 1994)
      The aim of this paper is to examine the impacts of a global carbon tax on fossil fuel markets. In particular, the effect on the Norwegian, as well as the global, petroleum wealth is studied. Most empirical models of fossil ...
    • Cartelization in gas markets : studying the potential for a "Gas OPEC" 

      Gabriel, Steve A.; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Egging, Ruud G.; Avetisyan, Hakob; Siddiqui, Sauleh (Discussion Papers;638, Working paper, 2010)
      Natural gas is increasingly important as a fuel for electric power generation as well as other uses due to its environmental advantage over other fossil fuels. Using the World Gas Model, a large-scale energy equilibrium ...
    • Cartelization in gas markets: Studying the potential for a “Gas OPEC” 

      Gabriel, Steven A.; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Egging, Ruud; Avetisyan, Hakob G.; Siddiqui, Sauleh (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Natural gas is increasingly important as a fuel for electric power generation as well as other uses due to its environmental advantage over other fossil fuels. Using the World Gas Model, a large-scale energy equilibrium ...
    • Climate policies in a fossil fuel producing country. Demand versus supply side policies 

      Fæhn, Taran; Hagem, Cathrine; Lindholt, Lars; Mæland, Ståle; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion papers;747, Working paper, 2013-06)
      In absence of joint global action, many jurisdictions take unilateral steps to reduce carbon emissions, and the usual strategy is to restrict domestic demand for fossil fuels. The impact on global emissions of such demand ...
    • CO2-emissions from Norwegian oil and gas extraction 

      Gavenas, Ekaterina; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Skjerpen, Terje (Discussion papers;806, Working paper, 2015-04)
      Emissions from oil and gas extraction matter for the lifecycle emissions of fossil fuels, and account for significant shares of domestic emissions in many fossil fuel exporting countries. In this study we investigate ...
    • Cost-effective environmental policy: Implications of induced technological change 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;No. 314, Working paper, 2002)
      Abstract: Cost-effective environmental policy generally requires that all emission sources are faced with the same tax. In this paper I discuss how the existence of induced technological change may alter this result, if ...
    • Cost-effective unilateral climate policy design: Size Matters 

      Böhringer, Christoph; Fischer, Carolyn; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;No. 664, Working paper, 2011)
      Abstract: Given the bleak prospects for a global agreement on mitigating climate change, pressure for unilateral abatement is increasing. A major challenge is emissions leakage. Border carbon adjustments and output-based ...
    • Det norske kvotesystemet 

      Hagem, Cathrine; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2007)
      Regjeringens forslag til kvotesystem for 2008-2012 innebærer vesentlige endringer i forhold til dagens kvotesystem. Noen endringer følger av at systemet skal integreres fullt ut i EUs system, andre endringer er selvvalgt. ...
    • Does a renewable fuel standard for biofuels reduce climate costs? 

      Greaker, Mads; Hoel, Michael Hoel; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion papers;720, Working paper, 2012-12)
      Recent contributions have questioned whether biofuels policies actually lead to emissions reductions, and thus lower climate costs. In this paper we make two contributions to the literature. First, we study the market ...
    • Does improved environmental policy enhance economic growth? endogenous growth theory applied to developing countries 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion Papers;No. 114, Working paper, 1994)
      The environmental impacts on an economy is studied over time using endogenous growth theory. Externalities from the environment on production are central in the analysis, and we examine whether an optimal path realizes ...
    • Does oilrig activity react to oil price changes? An empirical investigation 

      Ringlund, Guro Børnes; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Skjerpen, Terje (Discussion Papers;No. 372, Working paper, 2004)
      Abstract: In this paper we analyse how oilrig activity in different Non-OPEC regions is affected by the crude oil price. Oilrig activity outside OPEC is an important indicator for production in the near future, and ...
    • The effects of transport regulation on the oil market : does market power matter?

    • Elsertifikater og fornybar kraft : mål eller middel? 

      Hagem, Cathrine; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Journal article, 2011)
      Hva er hensikten med den foreslåtte loven om elsertifikater? I denne kommentaren vurderer vi elsertifikater som et generelt virkemiddel i energi- og klimapolitikken, og som et virkemiddel for å oppfylle EUs fornybardirektiv. ...
    • Emissions leakage and subsidies for pollution abatement. Pay the polluter or the supplier of the remedy? 

      Fischer, Carolyn; Greaker, Mads; Rosendahl, Knut Einar (Discussion papers;708, Working paper, 2012-10)
      Asymmetric regulation of a global pollutant between countries can alter the competitiveness of industries and lead to emissions leakage. For most types of pollution, abatement technologies are available for firms to produce ...
    • Emissions trading with offset markets and free quota allocations 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Strand, Jon (Discussion papers;719, Working paper, 2012-12)
      We study interactions between a “policy bloc’s” emissions quota market and an offset market where emissions offsets can be purchased from a non-policy “fringe” of countries (such as for the CDM under the Kyoto Protocol). ...
