Taxing and Trading: Debating options for carbon reduction

St Anne's College, Oxford, November 3 - 4
A 2-day workshop jointly hosted by the UKERC Meeting Place and the Tyndall Centre
This workshop was designed as an expert debate on alternative approaches to reducing carbon emissions from UK energy use. Four different possible solutions were presented and debated: domestic tradable quotas, personal carbon allowances + upstream capping for organisations, extending the EU emissions trading scheme, and a carbon taxation-led strategy.
