Course Correction: 2017 Amendments to the Austrian Electricity Act

Blog | 17 March 2017

The recent CARISMA discussion paper, Contextual factors affecting EU climate policies, discusses the institutional, economic, and social contexts which influence climate policy instruments, and the recent passage of the Green Electricity Act (GEA 2017) in Austria serves as a convenient example of how policymaking is influenced by such factors, and how they may help or hinder investment into low carbon policies requiring regular policy updates.

CARISMA Discussion Paper No. 1 - Contextual factors affecting EU climate policies and their outcomes

Discussion Paper | 28 February 2017

Institutional, economic and social contexts influence the formulation as well as the implementation of climate policy instruments. To design more robust and adaptive instruments, it is necessary to understand different categories and types of contextual factors that are central to EU climate change mitigation. This paper identifies three types of contextual factors: institutions and governance; innovation and investment; attitudes, behaviour and lifestyle.Read more...

CARISMA Working Document 4 - Energy effiency policies in Austria at different policy levels

Working Document | 5 December 2016

This working document highlights the interactions between energy efficiency policies at the federal and provincial government levels in Austria. The effectiveness of the new and current policies is difficult to ascertain, but the case study concludes that overlaps between different government subsidies imply that government funds are used inefficiently. The working paper concludes that a new target-oriented policy mix that is not entirely based on subsidies, but enables a combination with energy or environmental standards is a way to avoid these overlaps.
