Technology Choice Under Environmental and Technology Policies

Part of the Sustainability and Innovation book series (SUSTAINABILITY)

This chapter studies, based on the technical, economic and financing assumptions set out in chapter 5, the single and combined influence of environmental and technology policies on the utility’s choice of a new electric generation technology, first for the case of the absence of a CO2 abatement technology (section 6.2). Section 6.3 analyses how results change if a CO2 abatement technology is available. Section 6.4 summarises and discusses the results.
