Abstract

This paper analyzes the consequences of innovations in the electronic goods sector for global energy consumption and identities a global rebound effect with respect to trade in second-hand electronic consumption goods. With the help of 2SLS-regressions, the positive influence of trade in second-hand electronics on the respective penetration rates in developing countries and the consequences for worldwide energy consumption are estimated.
