20.09.2018 – Carbon compensation scheme evaluation

The department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has hired Economic Insight to evaluate the impact of carbon compensation schemes on energy intensive industries (EIIs).  The compensation schemes are intended to mitigate the impact of energy policies that disproportionately impact energy costs for industries with high energy usage.  Our work will blend extensive qualitative research with advanced econometric techniques ,in order to establish the impact of the schemes on firm behaviour.
