Taxing Emissions in [Un]Congested Power Systems

October 19, 2015
12:00-1:00 PM
(there will be pizza!)
HHH Room 170

Please join us for our first STEP-FAR seminar of the semester with Vivek Bhandari. 

This presentation is a part of Bhandari's PhD thesis. His talk will explore the use of emission taxes to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and their effect on power systems in terms of emission savings, generator revenue, load revenue and governmental revenue.  The context will be the electricity sector in the United States. Bhandari will conclude that, due to power system constraints, emission tax may not reduce emission, and may just impose a tax burden on no one else but load.

About the STEP-FAR Seminar Series

STEP FAR (Science Technology and Environmental Policy Feedback and Research) is designed for students, staff, faculty, and fellows to get together in an informal setting to discuss their projects, research-in-progress, opportunities, and a variety of other issues related to science, technology, environment, energy, and policy. It is a bi-weekly seminar taking place throughout the academic year. Learn more about STEP-FAR.
