Coal phase-outs and carbon prices: Interactions between EU emission trading and national carbon mitigation policies

Energy Policy, 2020, vol. 144, issue C

Abstract: The European Union Emission Trading System (EU ETS) constitutes the core instrument of the European Union climate protection policy. It limits greenhouse gas emissions of its member states and aims at facilitating an efficient allocation of emission reduction across national borders. Accompanying this policy at the European level, individual member states have introduced national mitigation policies, including renewable energy (RES) expansion measures or coal phase-outs.
