On behalf of EnBW AG Connect has developed an approach for cross-sector carbon pricing. The three main elements of the approach are to introduce a minimum price for CO2 in the ETS sectors, to price CO2 in transport and heating sectors with the ETS minimum price and to redistribute the revenues from this carbon price by reducing the tax burden on electricity. These measures can support climate protection quickly and effectively. They are socially compatible and can initiate sustainable development.
On Friday, 13th September 2019 Dr. Marco Nicolosi (Connect) and Dr. Jörg Jasper (EnBW expert for energy economics) presented and discussed the study with members of the press, the industry and policy makers.
