START2030 aims at providing comprehensive analyses of the economic incidence and social impacts of a transition to a 100 percent renewable electricity system by 2030. Policy scenarios will be analysed to depict the broad range of effects of this transformation. The analysis will deliver insights on the emission impact as well as on the macroeconomic and distributional effects of the transformation. Policy recommendations on how to mitigate detrimental effects on vulnerable groups will be derived.

To solve the climate crisis, a fundamental decarbonisation of the economy is indispensable. In addition to technological changes, this requires accompanying climate policy measures, most importantly the taxation of carbon emissions. As this instrument leads to manifold indirect effects and uncertainties, FARECarbon employs a stakeholder-assisted multi model comparison of carbon taxation in Austria. It aims to reduce model uncertainties and to synthesise the debate on carbon taxes, and to develop a concerted proposal on how to implement carbon taxes in Austria.

The European Emission Trading System (EU ETS) that covers greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and energy supply is a key instrument of the EU's climate policy. Since the start of the scheme in 2005, the credibility of the EU ETS has, however, been put into question due to a persistent oversupply of allowances (reflecting the regulators' uncertainty about firms' emission levels in the first trading period and a drop in emissions following the financial market and economic crisis in the second trading period). Numerous changes to the design of the EU ETS have been made in order to tackle this issue. The project SAFE aims at contributing to the research on the functioning and effectiveness of emissions trading schemes. It analyses whether the EU ETS despite a considerable surplus of allowances and low prices spurred abatement activities of the covered firms and whether firms have perceived changes in the incentives provided by the scheme over time. Moreover, it analyses how firms engaged in allowance trading and if their trading behaviour changed since the start of the EU ETS. To answer these questions, a case study for Austria is conducted in which an analysis of data on allocations, verified emissions and trading flows from the EUTL is combined with a survey among firms covered by the EU ETS.
