  • Greenstone, Michael; Gayer, Ted (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    This paper argues that an increased application of quasi-experimental and experimental techniques will improve understanding about core environmental economics questions. This argument is supported by a review of the ...
  • Bernard, Andrew B. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1996)
    We examine the hypothesis that hazardous waste facilities are disproportionately located in minority neighborhoods. We also ask whether such facilities provide observable economic benefits to the surrounding community. the ...
  • Friedlaender, Ann Fetter (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1991)
    This paper reports on results obtained from the estimation of a rail cost function using a pooled-time series, cross section of Class I railroads for the period 1974-1986. An analysis is performed of short-run and long-run ...
  • Friedlaender, Ann Fetter (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1990)
    This paper reports on results obtained from estimation of a rail cost function using a pooled time-series cross section of Class I U.S. railroads for the period 1973-1986. Based on the results of this cost function, an ...
  • Smith, James L.; Thompson, Rex W. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2006)
    Any investor in assets that can be exploited sequentially faces a tradeoff between diversification and concentration. Loading a portfolio with correlated assets has the potential to inflate variance, but also creates ...
  • Knittel, Christopher R. (MIT CEEPR, 2011-12-01)
    The United States consumed more petroleum-based liquid fuel per capita than any other OECD- high-income country- 30 percent more than the second-highest country (Canada) and 40 percent more than the third-highest (Luxemburg). ...
  • Nam, Junsang; Webster, Mort David; Kimura, Yosuke; Jeffries, Harvey Edward; Vizuete, William Gustavo; Allen, David T. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    High concentrations of ozone in the Houston/Galveston area are associated with industrial plumes of highly reactive hydrocarbons, mixed with NOx. The emissions leading to these plumes can have significant temporal variability, ...
  • Rodriguez, Diego; Stoker, Thomas M. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1992)
    This paper presents a simple regression test of parametric and semiparametric index models against more general semiparametric and nonparametric alternative models. The test is based on the regression coefficient of the ...
  • Rodriguez, Diego; Stoker, Thomas M. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1993)
    This paper presents a straightforward regression test of parametric and semiparametric index models against more general semiparametric and nonparametric alternative models. The test is based on the regression coefficient ...
  • De Figueiredo, Mark A. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2007)
    This essay examines several legal, regulatory and organizational issues that need to be addressed to create an effective regulatory regime for carbon dioxide capture and storage ("CCS"). Legal, regulatory, and organizational ...
  • Joskow, Paul L. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2005)
    This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and empirical literature on the regulation of natural monopolies. It covers alternative definitions of natural monopoly, regulatory goals, alternative ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Rose, Nancy L.; Shepard, Andrea (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1993)
    This paper explores the influence of economic regulation on the level and structure of executive compensation. We find substantial and persistent differences in CEO compensation between firms subject to economic regulation ...
  • Batlle, Carlos; Pérez-Arriaga, Ignacio J.; Zambrano-Barragán, P. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2011-05)
    Drawing from relevant experiences in power systems around the world, this paper offers a critical review of existing policy support mechanisms for RES-E (renewable energy sources for electricity), with a detailed analysis ...
  • Pérez-Arriaga, Ignacio J. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2009-07)
    Answering to the formidable challenge of climate change calls for a quick transition to a future economy with a drastic reduction in GHG emissions. And this in turn requires the development and massive deployment of new ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Tirole, Jean (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2004)
    Despite all of the talk about ₃deregulation₄ of the electricity sector, a large number of non-market mechanisms have been imposed on emerging competitive wholesale and retail markets. These mechanisms include spot market ...
  • Schmalensee, Richard (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2009-11)
    This paper provides an overview of the use of renewable energy sources to generate electricity in the United States and a critical analysis of the federal and state policies that have supported the deployment of renewable ...
  • Adelman, Morris Albert; Watkins, G. C. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1992)
    The Hotelling Valuation Principle, that the in-situ value of a mineral unit equals the current net price, is a special case of a more general relation. Tested against a set of recent Canadian sales of oil and gas reserves, ...
  • Labandeira Villot, Xavier; Labeaga, José María; Rodriguez, Miguel A. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2005)
    Sharp price fluctuations and increasing environmental and distributional concerns, among other issues, have led to a renewed academic interest in energy demand. In this paper we estimate, for the first time in Spain, an ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Tirole, Jean (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2004)
    We analyze a number of unstudied aspects of retail electricity competition. We first explore the implications of load profiling of consumers whose traditional meters do not allow for measurement of their real time consumption, ...
  • Allcott, Hunt (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2009-10)
    Most US consumers are charged a near-constant retail price for electricity, despite substantial hourly variation in the wholesale market price. This paper evaluates the .rst program to expose residential consumers to hourly ...
