Economic Instruments for Long-term Reductions in Energy-based Carbon Emissions - Executive Summary

Concerns about climate change will clearly be among the many factors driving a coherent energy strategy. The real debate is about how much weight should be given to climate change considerations in energy policy and about the appropriate tools for doing so. To provide more context for this critical issue, the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE) has explored a scenario in which economic instruments are used as a key tool to promote long-term carbon emission reductions. The operating assumption of our Ecological Fiscal Reform (EFR) and Energy Program was that long-term reductions in energy-based carbon emissions will be one of the main priorities shaping energy strategy.
