Environmentally related subsidies and taxes in nergy and transport

The project assesses which subsidies are in place in Austria that are potentially harmful for the environment. Starting from a literature review of international studies on the subject the focus of the analysis is put on direct subsidies and preferential tax treatments (indirect subsidies) in the areas energy generation and use as well as transport. The area "housing" is included in the analysis given its direct interlinkages with energy use and transport.
