  • Paz-Galindo, Luis A. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1999)
    This dissertation presents a different approach at looking at market power in capacity rights markets that goes beyond the functional aspects of capacity rights markets as access to transportation services. In particular, ...
  • Lanz, Bruno, 1980-; Rutherford, Thomas Fox; Tilton, John E. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2011-02)
    Subglobal climate policies induce changes in international competitiveness and favor a relocation of carbon-emitting activities. We argue that many energy-intensive activities are also capital-intensive, so that carbon ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1995)
    The standard framework in which economists evaluate environmental policies is cost-benefit analysis, so that policy debates usually focus on expected costs and benefits, or on the choice of discount rate. But this framework ...
  • Currie, Janet; Greenstone, Michael; Moretti, Enrico (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2011-02)
    We are the first to examine the effect of Superfund cleanups on infant health rather than focusing on proximity to a site. We study singleton births to mothers residing within 5km of a Superfund site between 1989-2003 in ...
  • Adelman, Morris Albert (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1994)
    The annual change in the value of an in-ground mineral is equal to the increase or decrease of inventories ("reserves"), multiplied by the market value of a reserve unit. The limited shrinking resource base does not exist. ...
  • Berndt, Ernst R.; Epstein, Roy J.; Doane, Michael J. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1995)
    Using multiple regression methods, we have undertaken a statistical "benchmark" study comparing system average electricity rates charged by three California utilities with 96 other US utilities over the 1984-93 time period. ...
  • Loury, Glenn C. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1990)
    This paper studies a dynamic, quantity setting duopoly game characterized as follows: Each firm produces an indivisible output over a potentially infinite horizon, facing the constraint that its cumulative production cannot ...
  • Rao, Nirupama S. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Research Policy, 2010-04)
    Rapid increases in oil prices in 2008 led some to call for special taxes on the oil industry. Because oil is an exhaustible resource, however, the effects of excise taxes on production or on reported producer profits may ...
  • Manzano, Osmel (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2000)
    Important reforms have been made to the oil sector tax code in Venezuela. Given its diversity of oil resources, there was a concern that some resources were not being exploited because of the structure of the tax code. ...
  • Poterba, James M. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1991)
    This paper develops several points concerning the design and implementation of a carbon tax. First, if implemented without any offsetting changes in transfer programs, the carbon tax would be regressive. This regressivity ...
  • McGuinness, Meghan; Trotingnon, Raphael (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    This memorandum provides an overview of three deficiencies within the current presentation of the Community Independent Transaction Log (CITL) data that have implications for researchers' ability to accurately analyze the ...
  • Lacombe, Romain H.; Parsons, John E. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    This paper provides an overview of the current status of development of the Canadian oil sands industry, and considers possible paths of further development. We outline the key technology alternatives, critical resource ...
  • Ellerman, A. Denny; Montero, Juan-Pablo (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2002)
    This paper provides an empirical evaluation of the temporal efficiency of the U.S. Acid Rain Program, which implemented a nationwide market for trading and banking sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission allowances. We first develop ...
  • Joskow, Paul L. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1991)
    This testimony discusses the changing structure of the electricity industry and some of the public policy issues that are associated with these changes. Professor Joskow also discusses his perspective on a selected set of ...
  • Montero, Juan-Pablo (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2002)
    A tradeable permits market is said to be efficient when all affected firms trade permits until their marginal costs equal the market price. Detailed firm-level data are generally required to perform such an efficiency test, ...
  • Martin, Katherine C.; Joskow, Paul L.; Ellerman, A. Denny (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    Due to variations in weather and atmospheric chemistry, the timing and location of nitrogen oxide (NOX) reductions determine their effectiveness in reducing ground-level ozone, which adversely impacts human health. Electric ...
  • Feilhauer, Stephan M. (Stephan Marvin); Ellerman, A. Denny (2008)
    This paper uses top-down trend analysis and a bottom-up power sector model to define upper and lower boundaries on abatement in Germany in the first phase of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (2005-2007). Long-term trend ...
  • Reilly, John M.; Thomas, Christopher Kent (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1993)
    Efforts to access climate change have generally been unsuccessful in describing the economic damages (or benefits) associated with climate change or the functional relationship of damage (or benefits) to climate. Existing ...
  • Duflo, Esther; Greenstone, Michael; Pande, Rohini; Ryan, Nicholas (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2010-08)
    Emissions trading schemes have great potential to lower pollution while minimizing compliance costs for firms in many areas now subject to traditional command-and-control regulation. This paper connects experience with ...
  • Bernard, Andrew B.; Chang, Pamela H. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1994)
    In this paper, we examine the determinants of the international trade in waste between developed countries. Data from the 1980s suggest that while the trade in waste between developed and less developed countries has ...
