Clean technology adoption and its influence on tradeable emission permit prices
In this paper we give an example in which the price of tradeable emission permits increases despite firms' adoption of a less polluting technology. This is in contrast with Montero (2002) and Parry (1998), among others. If two Counot players switch to a cleaner technology, the price for permits may increase due to an increase in the net demand for permits and a decrease in net supply of permits after the clean technology is adopted. This is only the case when output demand is elastic.
