  • Ramberg, David J.; Parsons, John E. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2010-11)
    Several recent studies establish that crude oil and natural gas prices are cointegrated, so that changes in the price of oil appear to translate into changes in the price of natural gas. Yet at times in the past, and very ...
  • Montero, Juan-Pablo; Guzmán, Juan Ignacio (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2005)
    Following the structure of many commodity markets, we consider a reduced number of large firms and a competitive fringe of many small suppliers choosing quantities in an infinitehorizon setting subject to demand shocks. ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Marron, Donald B. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1991)
    We use data from ten utility conservation programs to calculate the cost per kWh of electricity saved -- the cost of a "negawatthour" -- resulting from these programs. We first compute the life-cycle cost per kWh saved ...

    Reducing the European Union GHG emissions by at least 80% by 2050 will require a near zero carbon electricity, road and rail transport industry, and heating and cooling in buildings. As compared to “business as usual” the ...
  • Ellerman, A. Denny; Montero, Juan-Pablo (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1996)
    This paper presents an analysis of the reduction in SO2 emissions by electric utilities between 1985 and 1993. We find that emissions have been reduced for reasons largely unrelated to the emission reduction mandate ...
  • Evans, Joanne; Green, Richard C. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 2003)
    In an attempt to reduce high electricity prices in England and Wales the government has reduced concentration among generators and introduced New Electricity Trading Arrangements (NETA). Econometric analysis on monthly ...

  • Schmalensee, Richard; Stoker, Thomas M.; Judson, Ruth A. (MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, 1995)
    Emissions of carbon dioxide form combustion of fossil fuels, which may contribute to long-term climate change, are projected through 2050 using reduced form models estimated with national-level panel data for the period ...
  • Smith, James L. (2008)
