    • Carbon emissions in China: How far can new efforts bend the curve? 

      Zhang, Xiliang; Karplus, Valerie J.; Qi, Tianyu; Zhang, Da; He, Jiankun (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-10)
      While China is on track to meet its global climate commitments through 2020, China’s post-2020 CO2 emissions trajectory is highly uncertain, with projections varying widely across studies. Over the past year, the Chinese ...
    • Climate Co-benefits of Tighter SO2 and NOx Regulations in China 

      Nam, Kyung-Min; Waugh, Caleb J.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Karplus, Valerie J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10-01)
      Air pollution has been recognized as a significant problem in China. In its Twelfth Five Year Plan (FYP), China proposes to reduce SO2 and NOx emissions significantly, and here we investigate the cost of achieving those ...
    • Modeling the Prospects for Hydrogen Powered Transportation Through 2100 

      Sandoval, Reynaldo.; Karplus, Valerie J.; Paltsev, Sergey.; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-02)
      Hydrogen fueled transportation has been proposed as a low carbon alternative to the current gasoline-powered fleet. Using a computable general equilibrium model of the world economy we explore the economic viability of ...
    • Prospects for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles in the United States and Japan: A General Equilibrium Analysis 

      Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey; Karplus, Valerie J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2009-04)
      The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) may offer a potential near term, low carbon alternative to today's gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles. A representative vehicle technology that runs on electricity in addition ...
    • Will Economic Restructuring in China Reduce Trade-Embodied CO2 Emissions? 

      Qi, Tianyu; Winchester, Niven; Karplus, Valerie J.; Zhang, Xiliang (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10)
      We calculate CO2 emissions embodied in China’s net exports using a multi-regional input-output database. We find that the majority of China’s export-embodied CO2 is associated with production of machinery and equipment ...
