TOPICS / Feebate systems


Feebate systems are one of the best available policy options to reduce passenger car emissions. Feebate systems impose a fee on vehicles with high CO2 emissions or fuel consumption (i.e., low fuel economy) and provide a rebate to vehicles with low CO2 emissions or fuel consumption (i.e., high fuel economy).
