ROCHADE Final Conference: Transformation of the global energy system and the distributional consequences of climate policy
Ambitious climate policy and transformation of the global energy system is feared to prevent the expansion or rise of industrial activities necessary for long-term growth and development. Furthermore, it is believed to adversely affect poor households by an increase in relative prices of carbon-intensive goods and services.
The ROCHADE Final Conference “Transformation of the global energy system and the distributional consequences of climate policy”, to be held at Vienna University of Economics and Bussiness, Austria on June 3rd, 2022, brings together leading international scholars that work on development and distributional impacts of climate policies and the transformation of the global energy system, and its interaction with climate change and climate change mitigation. The conference is split into two parts: 1. scientific insights, 2. policy implications.
In the second part we expect Austrian Feder Minister of Climate Action Austria Leonore Gewessler to discuss the scientific findings of the first part of the conference with the researchers and the audience.
