General Equilibrium Effects of Green Technological Progress

Ngo Long and Frank Stähler ()

Environmental & Resource Economics, 2018, vol. 69, issue 1, 159-166

Abstract: Abstract This paper demonstrates that technological progress in production of renewable energy can influence the extraction path of fossil fuels indirectly by a change in the equilibrium interest rate. We show in a simple model that the indirect effect can be so strong that first-period or even aggregate extraction levels rise with green technological progress, contrary to popular expectations.
