Energy Efficiency, Emission Energy, and the Environment

Energy RESEARCH LETTERS, 2021, vol. 1, issue 1, 1-4
This paper studies the implications of environmental policies for energy efficiency and emission efficiency. We develop an environmental-economic model in which energy consumption produces pollutant emissions that negatively affect productivity. We find that an energy efficiency improvement provokes the â€œrebound effectâ€ but also increases energy consumption and pollutant emissions. By contrast, a technological improvement in emissions leads to a rise in energy consumption but a reduction in emissions.
