Abstract

The AIM-Korea Model has been developed to analyze global environmental policies together with local ones in Korea. Various scenarios are considered for analyzing policy options to reduce CO2 emissions. The major findings of this study can be summarized in terms of three aspects. Firstly, CO2 emissions will continue to increase as long as energy demand increases. It could be difficult to introduce in the market by 2020 energy savings or devices with low CO2 emissions in every sector without implementing any climate policy measures. Secondly, the policy implications of the mitigation of CO2 emissions in Korea is that the adoption of energy-saving devices should be further encouraged, which is indicated by the simulation results showing that the scenario of providing subsidies leads to the most effective reduction in CO2 emissions, as opposed to imposing only a carbon tax. Thirdly, the marginal cost of mitigating CO2 emissions varies according to the sector. Hence, it is important to identify the potential sectors where CO2 emissions reductions might be achievable at relatively low cost. According to the simulation results, the transportation, residential and commercial sectors could be potential candidates.
