ITS Seminar - Escape from Third-Best: Rating Emissions for Intensity Standards

Seminar | May 3 | 4-5 p.m. | 502 Davis Hall


Derek Lemoine, Ph.D., Department of Economics, University of Arizona

Institute of Transportation Studies


An increasingly common type of policy regulates the carbon intensity of transportation and electricity markets. In order to extend the policy's scope beyond point-of-use emissions, regulators assign each fuel an emission intensity rating for use in calculating compliance. We show that welfare-maximizing ratings do not generally coincide with the best estimate of actual emissions. The regulator...   More >
