Costs of Reducing CO2 Emissions: Evidence from Six Global Models
AbstractThis paper summarises and analyses results of the OECD's Model Comparisons Project. The aim of the project is to better understand differences across six global models in the cost of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. In order to facilitate comparisons, key assumptions and reduction targets have been standardised. The paper provides evidence on; i) projected carbon dioxide emissions through the next century, and ii) the carbon taxes and output costs entailed in reducing these emissions ... Ce document résume et analyse les résultats du projet de l'OCDE de comparaison de modèles. Le but de ce projet est de mieux comprendre les différences de coûts de réduction des émissions de dioxide de carbone que font apparaître six modèles globaux. Pour faciliter ces comparaisons les hypothèses clés et les objectifs de réduction ont été standardisés. Cette étude met en évidence ; i) les émissions projetées de dioxyde de carbone d'ici à la fin du siècle prochain et ii) les taxes sur le carbone et les coûts de production que suppose la réduction de ces émissions ...
