Abstract
The European Commission is currently reviewing two major policy instruments which will pose major economic challenges and opportunities for EU power pro-ducers. First, the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is likely to include a high percentage of auctioning. Second, support schemes for electricity from renewable energy sources may involve open private-actor trade of guaran-tees of origins (GO). This paper provides a first coarse comparison of the im-pacts of these policy changes on power sector producer rents. The results sug-gest that the losses in producer rents from increased auctioning in the EU ETS may be offset by additional producer rents from private-actor based GO trade for renewable electricity.
