“What a CO2 price floor can (and cannot) do for German climate goals”


Germany can meet its energy sector climate goals with a CO2-price floor between 50 and 75 euros, write Fabian Huneke, Carlos Perez Linkenheil and Simon Göß from the Berlin-based independent energy market specialist Energy Brainpool, in a contribution for energypost. But if neighbouring countries don’t take similar measures, more than half of the reduced CO2- emissions would be shifted abroad, lowering the effect from a European perspective.
