dc.description.abstractThis paper attempts to predict the potential effects of CO2 emissions tradingon fuel choice in the German electric power industry. By analyzing panel data(1968-1998) of major utilities, we show that the fuel mix of electric utilities isprice inelastic. As a consequence, the implementation of a CO2 tradingscheme will, if anything, only slightly induce interfuel substitution. Accordingly,low-carbon fuels will hardly replace lignite and hard coal through CO2emissions trading, as long as abatement targets are not extremely ambitious.However,one cannot rule out that fuel prices may become more important forthe utilities' fuel mix as a result of deregulation in the German power sector.en_US
