    The design on China's carbon tax policy to mitigate climate change

    Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning, 2010
    Carbon tax was an effective policy tool to cope with the climate change and promote energy saving and emission reduction. A Computable General Equilibrium Model was set up to simulate the influence of levy carbon tax on China's macro-economy, energy saving and CO2 emission reduction. The results suggest that low rate carbon tax was a feasible option in China's near future.

    Plugging the energy efficiency gap with climate finance: the role of international financial institutions (IFIs) and the Green Climate Fund to realise the potential of energy efficiency in developing countries

    International Energy Agency, 2012
    Energy consumption is growing in developing countries at a great pace and improvements in energy efficiency (EE) could provide opportunity for economic growth while providing broader access to energy and related services even from limited energy resources. This report underlines that moving the developing world towards a low carbon economy requires a scaling up of financing for EE.
