Climate Policy Design for Energy-Intensive Industries - And The Rest of Us

January 8, 2009 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Driving the U.S. energy system toward climate stabilization requires integration of multiple policy instruments in a staged series of legislative and regulatory policy vehicles. Qualifying the limitations of a cap-and-trade approach, Dr. Hummel will present a framework for orienting and organizing a multi-faceted policy development process. After surveying key design recommendations for specific sectors, the presentation will drill deeper into the specific challenge of engaging energy-intensive industries subject to global competition. After briefly discussing some of the policy designs under consideration, Dr. Hummel will engage the importance of LBL's research into best practice metrics for these industries as a key to resolving a major barrier in both federal and international climate policy negotiations.
