Renewable Energy And Greenhouse Gas Mitigation

  • Choiniere, Conrad J.
Registered author(s):

    The paper develops an exhaustible resource model with cumulative pollution and a backstop technology that exhibits increasing marginal costs of production. The model explores conditions under which it is optimal to have a protracted transition period where both an exhaustible and renewable resource are used simultaneously.
