Review of the 2030 Impact Assessment

CE Delft has published a study that reviews the European Commission Impact Assessment for the 2030 climate and energy policy framework. Although the study commends the European Commission on the depth and detail of its economic analysis, it also demonstrates that no systematic cost-benefit analysis has been carried out. It concludes that the higher end reduction scenarios actually yield the highest economic benefits and suggests the Commission should analyse these scenarios in closer detail.
