Our Work

The majority of our work falls within the following areas:

Carbon Pricing/Cap and Trade 

Carbon Pricing

CCEP researchers analyze a range of carbon pricing design considerations and impacts, from cap-and-trade programs to carbon taxes.

Clean Air Act 

 

Clean Air Act

In addition to exploring the Clean Air Act’s role in regulating conventional pollutants, CCEP researchers examine the costs and benefits of using the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate Adaptation 

 

Climate Adaptation

Research by CCEP researchers focuses on identifying cost-effective solutions for helping communities and governments adapt to a changing climate.

Electricity 

Electricity

Research by CCEP researchers examines how the US electricity sector can meet growing demand while meeting state—and potentially federal—guidelines for incorporation of renewables and energy efficiency.

Energy Efficiency  

 

Energy Efficiency

CCEP researchers examine how previous energy efficiency policies have fared and what potential new policies are likely to be most efficient and cost-effective at reducing energy use.

International Policy 

 

International Climate Policy

CCEP researchers examine the US role in international climate diplomacy, how to finance and monitor mitigation activities, and the relationship between international, national, and regional climate policies.

Conservation 

 

Renewable and Clean Energy

CCEP researchers examine how renewable energy technologies, clean energy standards, and other renewables policy options affect electricity prices, generation mix, and the distribution of costs.

State and Regional Policies 

 

State and Regional Policies

CCEP researchers provide guidance on policy design and look at the costs and effectiveness of programs such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and California’s AB 32 initiative.
