The electricity sector is one of the largest carbon emitters in Europe. To control these emissions, economic instruments such as emissions trading, taxes, and various voluntary agreements are increasingly being considered.

This study the economic instruments likely to be developed, on both national and EU levels, their potential impact, and the potential interactions of different instruments within and between countries, including issues relating to international electricity and emissions trading.
