Carbon Charges in Electricity Markets with Strategic Behavior and Transmission

Author

Listed:
  • Anthony Downward

Abstract

We examine the effect of introducing a carbon charge on electricity gen­eration. We model this by way of a two generator Cournot game over a two node electricity network. We find that within the electricity system, emissions of carbon dioxide can increase after a carbon charge is introduced.
