Article
A country's existing emission standard policy will lead to a “lock in” effect. When the country plans to adopt new market-based instruments to control greenhouse gas emissions, it must consider this effect as it chooses among instruments to avoid larger efficiency loss. In this paper, we find that the “lock in” effect will cause a kink point to occ...

Sector coverage matters greatly in designing China’s national emissions trading system (ETS), with issues to be considered including impacts on emission reduction, economic and social welfare change, and carbon leakage to uncovered sectors. In this article, we evaluate various policy choices by setting up six scenarios in a China computable general...
Article
Full-text available
There has been a rapid-growing trend in studying China’s environmental problems in the past decade. However, the existing environmental statistics data are far from meeting researchers’ requirements. The biggest problem is that the official environmental statistics data are only provided at either regional level or sectoral level. Considering the h...
Article
Financial incentives play a key role in promoting renewable energy investments that can help China achieve the 'dual carbon’ goal. The national emissions trading scheme (ETS) and the renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS) are two existing market-based policy instruments that can generate stable expected returns for low-carbon projects. This pape...
Preprint
The contact and interaction of human is considered to be one of the important factors affecting the epidemic transmission, and it is critical to model the heterogeneity of individual activities in epidemiological risk assessment. In digital society, massive data makes it possible to implement this idea on large scale. Here, we use the mobile phone...
Article
China’s national emission trading scheme (ETS) started operating in 2021 after four years of preparation. In the initial stage of national ETS, benchmarking approach is one of the hottest topics that have gained sufficient attention. For the reason that benchmarks will greatly affect the permits allocation results and thus affect the effectiveness...
Article
Carbon leakage could potentially occur if one group of countries implemented emission reduction policies while others did not. This paper integrates a counterfactual simulation study using a GTAP-E based CGE model with a carbon flow decomposition analysis, thus enabling us to trace the complex paths of carbon leakage numerically. Under the NDC scen...
Article
This paper investigates the distributional effects of China's National Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) on different income groups by using a recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium model including 11 household groups (including one rural household group and ten urban household groups). Scenarios are designed along two dimensions including se...
Article
Full-text available
China has built the world’s largest power transmission infrastructure by consuming massive volumes of greenhouse gas- (GHG-) intensive products such as steel. A quantitative analysis of the carbon implications of expanding the transmission infrastructure would shed light on the trade-offs among three connected dimensions of sustainable development,...

Inferring the uncertainties in economic conditions are of significant importance for both decision makers as well as market players. In this paper, we propose a novel method based on Hidden Markov Model (HMM) to construct the Economic Condition Uncertainty (ECU) index that can be used to infer the economic condition uncertainties. The ECU index is...
Article
Full-text available
Air pollution reduction policies can simultaneously mitigate CO2 emissions in the industrial sector, but the extent of these co-benefits is understudied. We analyse the potential co-benefits for SO2, NOx, particulate matter (PM) and CO2 emission reduction in major industrial sectors in China. We construct and analyse a firm-level database covering...
Article
We conduct a multi-model comparison of a carbon tax policy in China to examine how different models simulate the impacts in both near-term 2020, medium-term 2030, and distant future 2050. Though Top-down computable general equilibrium (CGE) models have been applied frequently on climate or other environmental/energy policies to assess emission redu...

Article
Full-text available
Globally, policy environments have become increasingly more complex with the growth in the number of wicked problems, such as that posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In their response to these problems, public administrations have, from necessity, become heavily reliant on their intergovernmental relations systems, as the challenges posed generally re...
Article
China has implemented retrofitting measures in coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) to reduce air pollution through small unit shutdown, the installation of air pollution control devices (APCDs), and power generation efficiency improvement. The reductions in highly toxic Hg emissions and their related health impacts by these measures remain poorly under...
Article
The power sector is the main contributor to climate change and atmospheric pollution, and reducing the emissions from the power sector is essential for achieving sustainable development. However, few studies have accounted for the emissions from various power-generation technologies. In this paper, a high-resolution inventory of power plants with m...

Full-text available
This study develops a new concept involving using the existing infrastructure for photovoltaic (PV) generation to reduce the costs associated with increased land use and to avoid curtailment due to the mismatch between power supply and demand. We establish a method to estimate the technological potential and economic performance of the PV systems d...
Preprint
China has implemented retrofitting measures in coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) to reduce air pollution through small unit shutdown (SUS), the installation of air pollution control devices (APCDs) and power generation efficiency (PGE) improvement. The reductions in highly toxic Hg emissions and their related health impacts by these measures have not...
Article
We demonstrate that unit errors of measurement will lead to significant biases in estimating the constant elasticity of substitution (CES) function. Monte-Carlo simulations show that estimation results tend to reach Cobb–Douglas (CD) functions or extreme values if units of input variables are incorrectly used. To avoid this problem, we suggest addi...
Article
The allocation of carbon emissions permits is a major component of the design of carbon trading schemes. The choice of allocation mechanisms can influence the long-term growth path, which in turn affects the effectiveness of the emissions reduction policy. The findings of this article indicate that while a static allocation mechanism can maximize c...
Conference Paper
So far, there are few researches based on GTAP model focusing on the inter-regional trade activities among BRICS countries. Specifically, few studies have paid special attention to tariff exemption or trade facilitation scenario analysis. On the other hand, these topics broadly exist in global, multilateral and bilateral trade agreements and dia...
Article
This paper examines how the different characteristics of both electric vehicles themselves and the consumers would influence the consumption behavior on electric vehicles. Data collection is based on the questionnaire design using the orthogonal experimental method and large-scale stated preference survey covering more than 2000 households in 10 ce...
