• Emissions trading with updated grandfathering : entry/exit considerations and distributional effects 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;No. 546, Working paper, 2008)
      Abstract: Allocation of free emissions allowances may distort firms' incentives or have adverse distributional effects. Nevertheless, Böhringer and Lange (2005) show that in a closed emissions trading scheme with a fixed ...
    • Gratis klimakvoter og investeringer i ren teknologi 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Journal article, 2011)
      Tildeling av gratis klimakvoter kan påvirke bedrifters insentiver til å investere i renere produksjonsteknologi. I denne artikkelen diskuterer vi effektene av gratis tildeling når bedriftene får tildelt et antall omsettelige ...
    • Incentives to invest in abatement technology : a tax versus emissions trading under imperfect competition 

      Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;606, Working paper, 2010)
      In the longer run, effects on R&D and the implementation of advanced abatement technology may be at least as important as short-run cost effectiveness when we evaluate public environmental policy. In this paper, we show ...
    • Oil consumption subsidy removal in OPEC and other Non-OECD countries Oil market impacts and welfare effects 

      Aune, Finn Roar; Grimsrud, Kristine; Lindholt, Lars; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;No. 846, Working paper, 2016-09-19)
      This paper studies the oil market effects of phasing out oil consumption subsidies in the transport sector. Welfare effects in different countries are also examined. We investigate potential feedback mechanisms of oil ...
    • Output-based allocation and investment in clean technologies 

      Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;644, Working paper, 2011)
      Allocation of emission allowances may affect firms' incentives to invest in clean technologies. In this paper we show that so-called output-based allocation tends to stimulate such investments as long as individual firms ...
    • Prices vs. quantities : technology choice, uncertainty and welfare 

      Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;677, Working paper, 2012)
      This paper shows that tradable emissions permits and an emissions tax affect the firms' technology choice differently under uncertainty. A tax encourages the most flexible technology if and only if stochastic costs and ...
    • Price versus tradable quantity regulation : uncertainty and endogenous technology choice 

      Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;No. 643, Working paper, 2011)
      Abstract: This paper shows that tradable emissions permits and an emissions tax have a risk-related technology choice effect. We first examine the first- and second-order moments in the probability distributions of optimal ...
    • Regulation in the presence of adjustment costs and resource scarcity: transition dynamics and intertemporal effects 

      Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion Papers;No. 864, Working paper, 2017-09-20)
      Announcement of future environmental regulation is likely to reduce current emissions in the combined presence of resource scarcity and adjustment costs. This contrasts with the results in the literature on the green ...
    • Smart hedging against carbon leakage 

      Böhringer, Cristoph; Rosendahl, Knut Einar; Storrøsten, Halvor Briseid (Discussion papers;No.822, Working paper, 2015-10)
      Unilateral climate policy induces carbon leakage through the relocation of emission-intensive and trade-exposed industries to regions with no or more lenient emission regulation. Both analytical and numerical studies suggest ...
