School of World Economy Hosted Erasmus+ Lecture on Environmental Taxes and Ecological Tax Reform by Dr. Miguel Buñuel

Climate change mitigation requires a global revolution in the ways that energy is supplied and used, resulting in a new sustainable energy model. In his lecture, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid’s professor Miguel Buñuel provided an economic perspective on three key mitigation options.

The new sustainable energy model requires far greater energy efficiency. It also calls that renewable energies and, perhaps, carbon capture and storage be deployed on a massive scale. A dramatic shift is also needed in government policies, notably creating a higher level of long-term policy certainty over future demand for low carbon technologies, upon which industry’s decision makers can rely. The best way to do this is through the use of market based policies, together with social behavior, which needs to change beyond what is possible just using market based instruments.

In addition to discussing new sustainable energy model, policy perspectives and behavior changes, Dr. Buñuel addressed environmental taxes as a key market based policy and the basis for ecological tax reforms.
