A general equilibrium cost-bene t rule for green certi ficates
Abstract: I embed a electricity certificate system, mandating that a
certain fraction of total electricity production must come from renewable
sources, in a stylized competitive economy and derive a general equilibrium
cost-benefit rule from perturbing the regulation. The welfare consequences
(ignoring distributional effects) of the perturbation are compactly
summarized in a simple formula.
