Evaluating the potential role of a National Low-Carbon Fuel Standard to support sustainable aviation fuels
Investigates the integration of aviation fuels into a national low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS) policy, highlighting the potential for LCFS policies to promote sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with policy design choices playing a crucial role in shaping their effectiveness.
Models the market impacts of regional carbon taxes on airfares via two regulatory approaches, accounting by country of operator registration and accounting by country of departure.
