Carbon Markets Around the Globe

Sustainability and Political Feasibility

Sven Rudolph and Elena Aydos

In this timely book, Sven Rudolph and Elena Aydos take an interdisciplinary approach that combines sustainability economics, political economy, and legal concepts to answer two fundamental questions: How can carbon markets be designed to be effective, efficient and just at the same time? And how can the political barriers to sustainable carbon markets be overcome? The authors advance existing theoretical frameworks and examine empirical data from various real-life emissions trading schemes, identifying strategies and policy windows for implementing truly sustainable ETS.

Written by leading scholars of EU climate law from the University of Groningen, chapters address the relevant directives and regulations, examining their implementation and impact on current policy and academic debate. The textbook introduces the main climate mitigation targets and instruments of the EU, analysing all available legal instruments to mitigate climate change, ranging from greenhouse gas emissions trading to the use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency mechanisms. In addition, the book provides an analysis of some overarching issues, such as the impact of climate law on energy network regulation, multi-level governance and protection of human rights.

Th is article presents a novel framework to help understand the evolution of renewable energy policy. In the process, it outlines a number of potential pathways to adapt to the rise of lowcost renewable energy technologies. For decades one of the primary aims of renewable energy policy has been to bridge the cost gap between conventional and renewable energy sources. With this cost gap narrowing and even disappearing in certain cases, the role of renewable energy policy is changing, away from traditional subsidies and toward providing a set of framework conditions that reduce key investment risks and provide investment certainty. Th is article provides a new lens through which to understand this transition: even in a world where renewable energy technologies are the least-cost sources of new power supply, they will still need a stable policy framework, one that supports project bankability, encourages investment in more system flexibility, and that establishes a clear long-term vision for the energy system.
